Maddison Earns Leicester A Point Against Southampton

Posted by

Leicester City came from behind twice to grab a Premier League point against Southampton at St Mary’s, with James Maddison scoring for the third game in a row.

Saints were the stronger team in the first half and were rewarded for their strong start with a third-minute goal, thanks to defender Jan Bednarek’s quick reaction after Mohammed Salisu’s effort was saved following a corner.

Centre-back Jonny Evans equalized for Leicester after Wilfred Ndidi’s shot was saved, but Che Adams headed in Nathan Redmond’s cross to restore the hosts’ lead before the break.

As the much-improved visitors pressed for a winner, Alex McCarthy made a superb save to deny Harvey Barnes, and Jamie Vardy fired over after pouncing on a mistake by Kyle Walker-Peters.

Despite the lack of a goal, Leicester moved up to eighth place in the table, with Southampton in 16th place, five points above the bottom three.
