Leicester City and Everton played out an exciting match that ended in a 2-2 draw, with both teams remaining in the relegation zone. The game began with both teams in the bottom three, but Leicester’s draw lifted them out of the drop zone on goal difference. Everton, on the other hand, remained in 19th place, with only one point separating them from 17th-placed Leeds.
The match was chaotic from the start. Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored his second goal of the season from the penalty spot in the 15th minute. Leicester City equalized seven minutes later through Caglar Soyuncu, who rolled home a cool finish from Wout Faes’ knockdown. Leicester then took the lead after 33 minutes. Jamie Vardy rounded Jordan Pickford and struck the ball into the net.
Everton should have leveled before half-time, but Calvert-Lewin missed an open goal from a couple of yards. Leicester on the other hand almost extended their lead with Vardy denied by the crossbar. Pickford saved Maddison’s penalty, which was struck straight down the middle by the England midfielder.
The visitors drew level nine minutes after the restart when Alex Iwobi guided in a low finish.
The game was a missed opportunity for both teams aiming for survival. Leicester’s defense remains an issue, as they have now failed to keep a clean sheet in their past 19 games. They also missed the opportunity to collect back-to-back victories at home for the first time in a year.
Everton, on the other hand, are also stuck in a rut, having won just one of their past 11 games under Sean Dyche.
