Leeds United 1-1 Leicester: VAR rules out Foxes winner

Last update on. From the section Premier League
In 13 appearances at all competitions, Harvey Barnes scored three goals for Leicester this season

VAR disallowed a second-half Leicester goal, as the Foxes and Leeds shared points in an entertaining Premier League match at Elland Road.

Ademola Lookman believed he had scored the winner in the second period. However, he was offside when Jamie Vardy flicked on a Youri Telemans corner.

Raphinha, Leeds' forward, had scored a goal to put his side in front in 26 minutes when his free kick from wide caught out Leicester keeper Kasper Scheichel at his far.

However, Leicester responded quickly to the kick-off by Barnes curling a stunning shot into the top corner at a tight angle.

Both teams had chances to win the match late on. Marcelo Bielsa's team moved three goals clear of the zone of relegation, while Leicester remained 12th.

Foxes get sloppy Leeds for their benefit

Now, Leicester are now four games without a victory. Brendon Rodgers' side is fourth behind West Ham in fourth and 17th above Aston Villa.

They were lucky not to be at least one goal down at halftime, with Leeds failing to convert many of the first-half opportunities they created.

This season, Leicester's defense has been suspect at times. Indeed, this result ends a streak of five league games in which the Foxes conceded at least twice.

They were still dangerous in attack, with Tielemans and Caglar Soyuncu coming close to scoring a goal in the second period.

Raphinha shows rare quality

Brazilian Raphinha is still a bright light in a dark period for Leeds United.

This forward has scored five goals this season, more than 45% of Leeds' goals.

Bielsa, Leeds boss, will wish the rest of his forwards were just as prolific.

In the second half, Jack Harrison, Winger Jack Harrison, was unable to bag a corner from just two yards out. This opportunity looked more easy to score than it was to miss.

Rodrigo and Daniel James also had late chances. Both rodrigo and Rodrigo took their chances. The Whites received a penalty shout that was turned down after the ball struck Leicester defender Daniel Amartey's arm in injury.

Leeds has won only one of their five matches in the past and have been victorious at home once this season.
