Maddison kicks out as Evans gets let-off - moments missed from Leicester City's cup win over Everton

Post by admin » Thu Dec 19, 2019 9:11 am

Leicester City reached the semi-final of the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.

Brendan Rodgers' men secured passage through to the penultimate round - where they will face Aston Villa - with a dramatic penalty shootout win over Everton.

City looked to be in cruise control following two goals in three minutes in the first half, one from each of James Maddison and Jonny Evans.

But a second-half volley from Tom Davies and a 90th-minute wondergoal from Leighton Baines took the contest to penalties.

City delivered the goods in the shootout, winning 4-2 to ensure there was to be no repeat of the last two seasons in this competition.

Below we take a look at the moments you might have missed from the dramatic win.

Jonny Evans, is that you?

Just moments into the game, Jonny Evans misjudged a header back to Kasper Schmeichel.

The ball didn't have enough on it to reach the City keeper, presenting a chance to Richarlison.

The Brazilian couldn't make the most of it despite beating Schmeichel to the ball, sparing Evans' blushes.

It's not often we see that from the usually ultra-composed Northern Ireland international.
'Guys, I scored!'

Jonny Evans scored City's second of the night, turning home Jamie Vardy's front post header at the back post.

But unusually, nobody came to celebrate with Evans, who isn't on the scoresheet too often.

Corner taker James Maddison lifted Ben Chilwell into the air over the other side, leaving Evans looking over, smiling to himself for a moment.

Lost puppy springs to mind with Evans perhaps hoping for a huddle of his own after finding the net.

He did eventually get one, trotting over to join his teammates, where he was embraced.
Maddison kicks out

James Maddison conceded a free-kick for handball just a minute into the second half.

But instead of giving the ball to Mason Holgate for the free-kick, he tried to keep it.

Holgate got the ball from him by means of a tackle of sorts, but Maddison kicked out with both hands and feet.

Luckily for the City midfielder, referee Jon Moss was already looking the other way.
Off comes the jacket

Duncan Ferguson left fans in disbelief at Old Trafford on Saturday in Everton's draw against Manchester United.

He stood at the sideline in the wind and cold in only a shirt.

He started this even colder Tuesday night with a suit jacket, but after Everton scored their first via Tom Davies, he whipped off the jacket and was back down to the shirt.

Everyone in the stadium seemed to be freezing, but the Scot, who clearly has very thick skin, was unfazed.
Soyuncu's socks...and Vardy's, too

City defender Caglar soyuncu had clearly decided the pink socks that go with the away kit aren't quite pink enough.

The Turkey international had an almost luminous pair of sports socks with the normal socks over the top, snipped where the two met on his leg.

He wasn't the only one, either, with Jamie Vardy also donning the luminous socks.

Perhaps there was a 2-for-1 deal somewhere?
