(Reuters) – Gylfi Sigurdsson struck a glorious 77th- minute winner to earn Everton a 2-1 win at 10-man Leicester City in the Premier League on Saturday.
The Icelander skilfully turned James Maddison before curling a long-distance effort past Kasper Schmeichel — his 50th Premier League goal — to end Leicester’s fading resistance after they had lost captain Wes Morgan to two yellow cards.
Everton took the lead deservedly after seven minutes with a brilliant goal made in Brazil as Bernard produced dazzling skill on the counter-attack to set up Richarlison.
Ricardo Pereira, on his 25th birthday, opened his account for Leicester in the 40th minute with a superb individual equaliser but Morgan’s 63rd-minute dismissal — both yellows were for fouls on Richarlison — ended their ambitions.
