Leicester Getting Closer To Liverpool

FootyBiteDecember 29, 2020

LONDON: Leicester rose to second place in the Premier League as a result of a late equalizer by Harvey Barnes during a 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace earlier this morning.

Wilfried Zaha’s great volley puts the Eagles squad ahead after Kelechi Iheanacho’s first-half penalty for Leicester was saved.

With a break just 48 hours after the Foxes’ 2-2 draw against Manchester United last Saturday and a visit to Selhurst Park, Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers made seven changes with Jamie Vardy and Youri Tielemans among the players rested on the bench.

Both were put in the middle of the second half and pressure was put on Leicester with an equalizer as Barnes blasted low into the corner for his eighth goal of the season.

Despite the problem of losing many of their stars, Leicester still played better but missed the opportunity to reduce the gap with Liverpool in the league standings to just one point.
