jpnn.com, ENGLAND – Leicester City silenced Southampton 2-0 in the 19th match at King Power Stadium, Saturday local time or Sunday (17/1) WIB.

Raihan three points brought Leicester to jump to second place in the Premier League standings.

Goals by James Maddison and Harvey Barnes saw Brendan Rodgers’ team now collect 35 points and displace reigning champions Liverpool (33) from second place.

Southampton, 29, who lost their first in four matches, fell to eighth, according to the official Premier League website.

The absence of Southampton’s most famous striker, Danny Ings, initially did not really affect the appearance of The Saint.

They appeared to press the hosts in the first 10 minutes of the match, although they were unable to create dangerous opportunities.

In the 17th minute Che Adams pushes into the Leicester penalty box, but his shot is cleared by Wesley Fofana, who puts the body in front of goal.

Two minutes later, it was Leicester’s turn to threaten through Jamie Vardy’s deception to let the ball be struck by Barnes.
