Leicester City Beats Leeds United 2 – 0 But Remains 19th On The Table

Leicester City claimed a valuable Premier League victory over fellow strugglers Leeds as they moved off the bottom of the table. The result saw Brendan Rodgers’ team enjoy only their second success of the campaign, while Leeds, who stay 16th, are now without a win in their last seven top-flight matches.

Robin Koch’s own goal set the hosts on their way before either side had managed a shot, with the Leeds defender sliding Dennis Praet’s cross past his own goalkeeper Illan Meslier. While Leeds had opportunities to level, in particular when Luis Sinisterra struck the woodwork, they repeatedly left themselves open at the back.

And an unmarked Harvey Barnes punished them, doubling the Foxes lead from Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall’s cross. While the result should ease the pressure on Leicester boss Rodgers, his Leeds counterpart Jesse Marsch’s position is likely to come under greater scrutiny, with their last win on 21 August.
