LEICESTER: Gylfi Sigurðsson struck a glorious 77th-minute winner to earn Everton a 2-1 win at 10-man Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Icelander skilfully outmanoeuvred James Maddison before curling a long-distance effort past Kasper Schmeichel – his 50th Premier League goal – to end Leicester’s fading resistance after they had lost captain Wes Morgan to two yellow cards.

Everton deservedly took the lead deservedly after seven minutes with a spectacular goal when Bernard produced dazzling skill on the counter-attack to set up Richarlison.

Ricardo Pereira, on his 25th birthday, opened his account for Leicester in the 40th minute with a superb individual equaliser but Morgan’s 63rd-minute dismissal – both yellows were for fouls on Richarlison – hampered their ambitions.
