Leicester vs Leeds LIVE: Latest score, goals and updates from Premier League fixture today

Bielsa highlights Leicester’s attacking virtues

Brendan Rodgers’ Foxes are currently third in the top flight but will overtake second-placed Manchester United – who lost to Sheffield United earlier this week before drawing with Arsenal on Saturday – if they can overcome Marcelo Bielsa’s visitors. Leicester, who have won three and drawn two in their last five Premier League outings, would close the gap to leaders Man City to just two points with a victory here – though Pep Guardiola’s side have a game in hand. But Leicester take on dangerous opponents this afternoon in the form of Leeds. Bielsa’s team have won three and lost two in their last five showings in the division, leaving the promoted club twelfth in the standings at the exact midway point of their campaign.

LEICESTER 1-1 LEEDS (45’)

Some slightly unconvincing defending from Leeds as another cross is sent into the box by Albrighton. Cooper’s attempted clearance is skewed towards his own goal, but Meslier catches it.

There’ll be three added minutes.

Tielemans finds Barnes, who turns and sees his shot blocked. When the ball drops Fofana is penalised for a foul on Cooper, just as Maddison crashes an effort against the bar.

Another good save from Schmeichel! Raphinha and Bamford play a clever one-two and the former breaks into the box before firing a low shot at goal. Schmeichel gets down to his left and parries it away. Leeds are well on top at the moment.

Now Leeds have a goal ruled out! Bamford meets a corner with a powerful header from a few yards out, which Schmeichel somehow claws away, with a little help from the crossbar. Klich fires home the rebound, but he’s in an offside position.

Harrison latches onto a long diagonal ball and hits a first-time shot on the bounce. There’s plenty of power on it, but Schmeichel saves at his near post.
