In a thrilling match at Loftus Road, Leicester City managed to secure a hard-fought 2-1 victory over a determined Queens Park Rangers side. Stephy Mavididi opened the scoring for the Foxes with a first-half strike, but their lead was short-lived as Andre Dozzell equalized late for the hosts.
Despite Dozzell’s efforts, his two yellow cards in the second half allowed Leicester City to seize the opportunity. Harry Winks capitalized on the advantage, delivering a spectacular goal from twenty-five yards.
Surprisingly, despite an 80% possession, this away win marked one of Leicester City’s least impressive performances of the season. The Foxes appeared sloppy and sluggish at times, and Queens Park Rangers’ penchant for long-range shots kept them on their toes. If not for Rangers’ shooting strategy, the match could have easily taken a different turn.
Leicester City now boasts an impressive record of 13 wins from 14 matches, maintaining their position at the top of the table with 39 points. However, the pressure remains high, with the Tractor Boys trailing closely behind, five points adrift with a game in hand.
Looking ahead, Leicester City faces a challenging match against 3rd placed Leeds United on Friday, followed by a trip to Yorkshire to battle Middlesbrough on Saturday, the 11th.
