Leicester is putting pressure on Manchester United. By winning (2-1) this Sunday at Aston Villa, as part of the 25th day of the Premier League, the Foxes have indeed nabbed second place from Manchester United, who could recover it in the event of a victory at home opposite Newcastle (8 p.m.).
Traoré gave hope to Aston Villa
Still, Brendan Rodgers’ team really struggled to glean this success at Villa Park, thanks to goals from his men in form: James Maddison, who scored with a coiled shot at ground level (0-1, 19th ), after being well served by Harvey Barnes, who doubled the bet by taking a ball repelled by Damian Martinez (0-2, 23rd), after a shot from Jamie Vardy.
The Villans reduced the mark by Bertrand Traoré, author on the stroke of his fifth Premier League goal, who took advantage of a good cross from Matt Targett (1-2, 46th). Then Aston Villa had opportunities to equalize in particular by Traoré (78th) or Tyrone Mings (90 + 5th). Due to the setback, the Birmingham club remain eighth in the Premier League.
