Leicester 3 – Everton 1: Premier League champions continue their party in style

7 May

The players – – got their medals at the end of a convincing 3-1 rout at the King Power Stadium.


Jamie Vardy scored twice – his first coming just five minutes in when prodding home from Andy King’s dinked cross.

King doubled their lead before the break after Riyad Mahrez had broken into the box from the right, before Vardy converted his first of two penalties.

Kasper Schmeichel was dominant at the other end and blocked a Oumar Niasse chip – the best Everton had to offer on a soggy evening in Leicestershire until Kevin Mirallas scored with three minutes left.

And manager Claudio Ranieri was serenaded at full time by a sold-out King Power Stadium eagerly awaiting captain Wes Morgan to lift the trophy.
