Leicester City Loses 0 – 1 To Leeds United

Leeds United’s thrilling victory at the King Power Stadium put an end to Leicester City‘s nine-game winning streak in the Championship.

In the early going for Leeds, Joel Piroe came near, and 11 minutes before halftime, Abdul Fatawu of Leicester struck the crossbar.

However, Leeds emerged from the half stronger and earned a well-earned lead through a close-range header from Georginio Rutter after Mads Hermansen had palmed away Sam Byram’s header from a corner.

The Foxes’ late attempt through substitute Kelechi Iheanacho was blocked, and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall’s header in stoppage time caused Leeds goalkeeper Illan Meslier to make an incredible first save.

Leicester fails to win the league for a club-record ten times in a row, although they are still five points ahead of Ipswich Town, who are in second position and have two games remaining.

Leeds, who were demoted along with the Foxes from the Premier League the previous season, closed the point differential between the two clubs and secured third place in the standings.

In the first two minutes, Leicester was troubled by Leeds’ pressing as Piroe missed a 12-yard attempt after Rutter put the Dutchman through and Ethan Ampadu won the ball high up the pitch.

With Leeds dominating the first quarter, Rutter’s claim for a penalty was turned down as he went down under a challenge from Cesare Casadei, even though Leicester winger Stephy Mavididi appeared dangerous down the left.

Shortly after, as the Foxes started to close the half, Harry Winks dinked a pass and found Casadei on the Leeds six-yard line. Casadei took a hard touch.

The biggest chance Leicester had in the first half came from Ghanaian international Fatawu, who did a fantastic job of dribbling past Byram on the right side before cutting in and curling a hard left-footed shot that struck the bar.

Leeds scored immediately, and Crysencio Summerville was brought down on the edge of the box by Ricardo Pereira’s minuscule touch on his arm.

Following complaints that his team ought to have received a penalty, visiting manager Daniel Farke was booked.

Leeds improved their play in the second half, as James Justin did well to take Summerville out of a dangerous area shortly after Piroe’s attempt was superbly stopped by Hermansen.

When Leeds took the lead via a header from Rutter, Leicester were prepared to substitute Iheanacho for the reserved Jamie Vardy.

After some superb build-up play, Fatawu’s volley gave the Foxes a chance to tie the score, but the hosts increased their pressure and Iheanacho’s effort was blocked.

In the fifth minute of stoppage time, Joe Rodon made a great save to deny Iheanacho’s late shot from within the box, and then Meslier made an outstanding save to deny Dewsbury-Hall’s back-post header that appeared to be heading into the upper left corner.

Even though Leeds has two more games to go and is currently six points behind Ipswich in second place, this outcome seems promising for them.

Farke’s West Yorkshire team will be encouraged by what amounts to just Leicester’s second league loss of the year going into their upcoming matches against Rotherham United, Plymouth Argyle, and Swansea City.
