Cédric monitoring Chilwell

The full-back is continuing to get forward down the left, but is well marshalled by Saints' equivalent. Looks a threat on the counter, plenty of pace in wide areas for Leicester!

Leicester enjoying possession...

The old partnership linking once again! Jamie Vardy lays the ball off to Riyad Mahrez, who didn't quite connect with the shot. Alex McCarthy gathers comfortably enough.

4’

Prowsey free-kick...

Whipped in by the midfielder, up and then away by Jamie Vardy. Tadić was fouled in the preamble, but the danger is cleared.
