Leichester City vs Leeds United- All Actions and Match Report
Michael Appleton continued his fine start as Leicester’s caretaker boss by guiding them past Leeds United to reach the Carabao Cup last eight.
Pablo Hernandez put Leeds ahead with a stunning 20-yard shot that flew in off the bar, but Leicester levelled through Kelechi Iheanacho’s first goal since a £25m move from Manchester City.
Islam Slimani knocked in Iheanacho’s cross for a deserved Foxes lead. Substitute Riyad Mahrez cut inside to fire in as Appleton earned his second win since replacing Craig Shakespeare.
