Leicester clinch dramatic late winner against Everton

Kelechi Iheanacho’s dramatic winner was his first Premier League goal since September 2018

Leicester City scored deep into stoppage time to complete a turnaround against Everton and close the gap on leaders Liverpool at the top of the Premier League.

The result leaves the Foxes in second, eight points behind leaders Liverpool, while under-pressure Marco Silva sees his side remain 17th.

Richarlison had given the visitors a first-half lead with a bullet header from Djibril Sidibe’s cross.

Brendan Rodgers’ side – who struggled for large parts of the game against a resolute Everton defence – equalised when Jamie Vardy tapped in Kelechi Iheanacho’s cross.

And the 2015-16 title winners won the game in the dying seconds when Iheanacho latched on to Ricardo Pereira’s through-ball to steer the ball past Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.
