However, Spurs recovered to make it 3-3 thanks to Erik Lamela and Sanchez who got their second and third goals.

Richarlison put Everton back in the lead at 4-3 but Harry Kane’s header forced the match into extra time.

And in the first half of extra time, Bernard then settled the tie with a fine strike off a superb assist from Sigurdsson.

At the King Power stadium, Kelechi Iheanacho was the hero as his stoppage time goal sealed a 1-0 win for Leicester against Brighton and Hove Albion.

Also in action for the Foxes was Wilfred Ndidi who returned from injury.

  • Nice one iwobi. Keep shining but add goals to your game as well.
    Leicester should not be rushing ndidi back to the field after his injury. I know they need him but they should be careful not to over exert him.
