Everton beaten by Leicester
Everton traveled to Leicester City on Sunday, as they looked to put and an end to their poor run of form.
The Toffees’ previous outing saw them comprehensively beaten 2-0 by relegation-battling Norwich City last weekend.
As a result, Everton began Sunday just two points clear of the relegation zone.
But Everton’s fortunes did look to be turning around at the King Power when Richarlison fired Marco Silva’s side into the lead with 23 minutes gone.
However, Everton were unable to hold onto their lead.
Kelechi Iheanacho was brought on by Brendan Rodgers 62 minutes in vs Everton, and the forward had a huge impact on the tie.
Iheanacho would assist Jamie Vardy just six minutes after coming on.
The Nigerian then scored an injury-time winner, after VAR ruled he was not offside.
The Foxes are now back up to 2nd in the English top-flight, and are Liverpool’s closest challengers for the title.

“I was a passionate Everton fan as a kid. It was always my dream to go to Goodison as a child. I never got there until later in life.” As quoted by the Mirror.
