Monday Premier League review

Leicester City handed a comprehensive 4-1 away defeat on Leeds United to move into second-place on the Premier League table.

Jamie Vardy extended his impressive record of scoring in every away league game this season, once again profiting from Cengiz Under’s vision.

It was a perfect start for the Foxes who took only two minutes to go ahead, Jamie Vardy capitalising on a dreadful backpass to setup Harvey Barnes.

Vardy was again involved in the second goal, his deflected header falling into Youri Tieleman’s for an easy tap-in.

Three minutes into the second-half, Leeds got what seemed like a life line, Stuart Dallas halving the deficit to ignite hopes of a fightback from the hosts.

However, there was to be no such comeback as substitute Under unselfishly played in Vardy for the third before Tieleman’s converted from the spot for the fourth and final goal to seal a truly dominant Leicester performance.

In the day’s first game, Fulham beat West Bromwich Albion 2-0 to move out of the bottom three for the first time this season, their first victory of the league campaign.

First-half goals from Bobby Ried and an absolute stunner from Ola Aina, his first in English league football took the Cottagers into 17th-spot, while the winless Baggies remain in the red zone and look in real danger of an immediate return to the Championship if they continue with this toothless performances.
