With Leicester City against Aston Villa, there was an unexpected top match in the Premier League. The 2 teams, who are at the top of the standings, seemed unable to distance themselves from each other, but in the 91st minute Ross Barkley decided otherwise with a nice long shot. He got the ball from McGinn and hit from 25 yards, the ball disappeared into the bottom right corner.
With the victory, the Villans show off with a 12/12 and are in 2nd place in the standings 1 point behind Everton and with a match less. It has been 90 years since Vila won his 1st 4 league games in the highest league.
With Timothy Castagne, Youri Tielemans and Dennis Praet, 3 Belgians were at the kick-off at Leicester. Praet was changed after 68 minutes. Björn Engels stayed on the bench at Aston Villa.
In a match with few chances – Leicester clearly missed his injured striker Vardy – Castagne had the best chance for the home side. But his sharp shot before half-time was turned away by goalkeeper Martinez.
For Villa it is the second striking victory in a row, after the international break champion Liverpool was beaten 7-2. Even then Barkley was already at the gun.
