It was heartbreak for Leicester City, as they let Everton’s Richarlison score an extra-time goal to draw the match 1-1 at the Goodison Park while the now 15th place Aston Villa are back in action after losing 4-0 to Antonio Conte’s Tottenham Hotspur.
Harvey Barnes scored an early goal in the fifth minute to see his team win all three points. But as this has been the case for The Foxes this season they could square off the opportunities presented by a weak Everton and the Toffees managed to salvage a point right at the very end. This draw meant only Newcastle with 24 and Southampton with 23 points have dropped more points than Leicester City who have dropped 19 points from winning positions.
This match also saw Brendan Rodgers go up against Steven Gerrard. The pair had previously worked together at Liverpool when Rodgers nearly led a Steven Gerrard led the side to Premier League glory. The former Liverpool captain will be looking to complete the double against his former manager after defeating them 2-1 at Villa Park.
