Leicester won a 9–0 record win against Southampton in their last trip to St Mary in 2019. But this time Leicester drew a tie with 10 man Southampton as it was too difficult for them and should have been behind at the beginning of the time when Nathan Tella gave Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel a weak shot while remaining eight meters from goal.

Southampton were reduced to 10 men in the 10th minute when Vestergaard’s slip left Vardy at the edge of the penalty area.

Vestergaard responded to his fumble with a desperate attack, but although the central defenders came into contact with the ball, he shook Vardy’s ankle in the process, winning a red card from referee Robert Jones.

Leicester needed more than half an hour to get a serious chance when Kelechi Iheanacho picked Youri Tielemans, and the Belgian short-lived forced St goalkeeper Alex McCarthy to save from his near goal.

Southampton struggled and, after 61 minutes, Iheanacho was able to reduce the deficit to 1 – 0 after some excellent moves to the right ended with an incredibly clever chip. Stuart Armstrong’s shot hit Iheanacho’s outstretched arm and Jones showed the opportunity, with Ward-Prowse destroying Schmeichel for the ninth goal of the season.

In the end, Leicester equalized in the 68th minute, while Evans faced Iheanacho’s cross with a powerful header that gave McCarthy no chance. Vardy, scored by James Madison, won it with seven minutes left for Leicester, but McCarthy made a superb save with his feet to repel the long-range effort.

Writing about football is one of my favorite things to do. As a football writer, I love the rush of being in the stadium on game day and watching all the action live. It's like no other feeling for me. I'm passionate about writing about it, but until recently I've been doing it as a hobby rather than a profession.
