The duo came into the encounter in dire need of a win to boost their chances for a place in Europe next season. However, it was Brendan Rodgers men’s who took the three points; booting their top-four.

Making the Brendan Rodgers’ attack alongside veteran Jamie Vardy, the 23-year-old gave Leicester a 49th-minute lead after a tight first-half. The Nigerian international headed the ball past Vicente Guaita after Belgium international Youri Tielemans broke down the left flank before sending a teasing low ball across the face of goal – which was fumbled by the man at the post. Victory was at last secured with Verdy’s brace to make it three-nill for the visitors.
