Southampton vs Leicester How It Happened
Leicester was the better and more active team from the whole beginning. Ben Chilwell opened the score in the 10th minute. We have seen much faster goals in the history of the sports and there was no indication that this would be one of those games that we will remember for a long time. No question about Leicester City fans that bought the tickets for the away game against Southampton.
Controversial Red Card Decision
The game-changer moment happened in the 11th minute of the game. After Ryan Bertrand lost control of a ball and in his recovery attempt got a bit too aggressive and slide tackled Leicester player.
Yes, it was a clear foul that led to Leicester City getting an advantage and subsequently scoring a goal.
The fact is that the Leicester goal was not counted but instead the VAR decision influenced the game in a surprising manner to many. Ryan Bertrand was shown a red card and was sent off the field early.
Being a Leicester fan or actually any football fan would you like to see your team being up 2-0 in 11th minute or would you rather be up 1-0 and playing against 10 men? You make the call!
Smart Foxes Took Every Opportunity To Score
And there were many but boy were some of those goals beautiful. Stunned Southampton could not seem to figure out how to organize its defense with 10 men (even though they lost an attacking player).
Rain, frustration and overall poor performance took their toll on Southampton who saw themselves down 0-2 in 17th minute after a ruthless and well-calculated strike from Tielemans.
The goals kept coming until the end of the match.
Two Leicester players ended up with a hattrick, namely Jamie Vardy and Ayoze Perez (who was actually behind the tack from Bertrand early in the game).
