Leicester have not been bashful about their lofty ambitions for this season and they certainly have no reason to lower their sights after emerging from this high-class showdown with maximum points. This was a rollicking contest featuring fast and muscular action, an extraordinary goal by Harry Kane, two dramatic interventions by VAR, a terrific equaliser by Ricardo Pereira and, finally, a late strike by James Maddison that can only do Leicester good as they strive to upset the Premier League’s established order again.
“We have to be seen as one of those top sides,” said Maddison. “Nobody will want to come to this place when it’s rocking like this. If you look at our performances at Chelsea and Manchester United, we came away shaking our heads in disappointment because we didn’t get what we deserved. We’re showing we’re a big threat now.”
