Leeds United were unable to hang on to beat relegation rivals, Leicester City as the two sides shared the points at Elland Road.

The visitors thought they’d taken the lead after 6 minutes when Tielemans fired a fierce strike from the edge of the box off the underside of the crossbar and into the top left corner. Thankfully for Leeds, Soumare was caught offside in the build-up.

At the other end, Leeds squeezed in front thanks to a bit of magic from Jack Harrison, whose perfect cross from the right wing found Sinisterra at the back post, who headed down into the bottom left corner before going off injured.

Leicester looked like the side most likely to score in the second half, and they snatched the equaliser with ten minutes to go, as Iheanacho, Maddison and Vardy combined in a rapid move to end Vardy’s six-month goal drought.

The Whites should’ve stolen the three points when the goalkeeper parried Roca’s header from inside the six-yard box before being cleared off the line. The resulting corner yielded a sitter for Patrick Bamford who somehow missed the target at the back post, though he looked offside in hindsight.
