Leicester City move away from the bottom of the table with a 2-0 win over Leeds

Leicester (England): Leicester City have drifted away from the bottom of the English Premier League following a comfortable 2-0 win over Leeds United, who played their seventh straight match without a win on Thursday. The second Leicester win in this season has come in 35 minutes, when Robin Koch scored an own goal and Harvey Barnes added the second goal for the hosts at King Power Stadium. Leeds ran out of charge in the second half when Leicester goalkeeper Danny Ward saved a shot on the match’s own goal when he saved a close-range attempt by Liam Cooper. Leicester won easily by overtaking Nottingham Forest and climbing to penultimate position with eight points, but are one point behind Leeds in 16th place, with Jesse Marsh’s side approaching the relegation zone. “When you are in bottom of the table, every point counts, “Leicester midfielder Yuri Tillmans told Amazon. We held the ball very well and attacked. in brilliant way and that’s what we need. Every good performance gives us confidence and now we can rely on it ”. The pressure on the coaches of both teams has increased in recent weeks after suffering a disappointing start to the season. Leicester received a boost before hosting Leeds with the return of Jamie Vardy as the veteran striker seeks his first goal of the season. Vardy contributed to the first goal as Koch was unable to avoid turning a Dennis Praet low cross into his own goal. Leeds responded well and created several chances, the closest of which was with Luis Sinistera with a shot bouncing off the crossbar. Despite this, the team failed to score any goals, which cost them their second goal with Barnes, who ended in net a counterattack for Leicester. The fact that Leeds was not in able to return in game in the second half was even more frustrating for Marsh, as the visitors suffered their third consecutive defeat. The team has now failed to win any of the prime five away games of the season for the first time since 1998-99, with Leeds scoring just one point during those games with the fewest points since the 1983-84 season. “In area We didn’t help each other in penalty but now we have to find ways to stop the bleeding points, “said American Marsh. We have to fight and prepare for what’s to come. I’m here and I’m doing everything I can to help this team.” (Reuters)
