On behalf of the 19th day of the Premier League, two teams in sight this season faced each other at the King Power Stadium on Saturday evening. Fourth, Leicester City was keen to extend a series of four games without defeat (2V, 2N). Opposite, Southampton, installed in eighth place, still presented himself with the scalp of Liverpool, beaten 1-0 a dozen days ago.
An achievement by James Maddison, powerful and precise from a closed angle (1-0, 37th) and a goal from Harvey Barnes, launched by Tielemans at the very end of the match (2-0, 90th + 5) made the happiness of Brendan Rodgers. Wesley Fofana played 53 minutes, before giving way to Caglar Soyuncu. Among the Saints, Ibrahima Diallo was replaced by Yann Valéry in the 87th. The young Allan Tchaptchet remained on the bench.
