Leicester beat Leeds United with Rodgers strategy

Leicester is second in the table with early goals from Harvey Barnes and Youri Tielemans, then Jamie Vardy’s second-half clincher plus a late Tielemans penalty were enough to account for a poor Leeds-for whom Stuart Dallas bagged.

Brendan Rodgers completely nailed his strategy for the second league game in a row.

The game was effectively settled within three minutes, when Patrick Bamford plopped a free header squarely into the arms of Kasper Schmeichel and Leicester countered immediately, Christian Fuchs’ pass and Barnes’ pace picking a mistake from Robin Koch, allowing Vardy to tee up Barnes for a tap-in.

And by 21 minutes Leicester extended their advantage, Illan Meslier stopping Vardy’s diving header, only for Tielemans to punch the loose ball back down.

Leeds were much better after half-time and pinned Leicester back on 47 minutes following Dallas’ livener.

But after a clever pass from Cengiz Under, one of the replacements, they failed to establish and were finally punished on the counter, Vardy gleefully converting.

Then, James Maddison was fouled by Mateusz Klich and Tielemans swept home from the spot after Vardy left. Leicester goes forward.
