MONDAY 14 SEPTEMBER 2015
By the 70th minute mark, it looked all but over for
Leicester City, trailing 2-0 to a lively Aston Villa.
Little did we know that Laet would spark the revival for the
comeback of the Premier League season.
Goals from young gun Jack Grealish and Charles Gill gave The
Lions a 2-0 advantage, although it wasn’t enough as Tim Sherwood’s men walked
back to the dugout crushed.
Leicester’s never say die attitude has earned them second
place, and an undefeated status so far in the Premier League.
Claudio Ranieri’s men have only lost one of their last 14
games, and look like the dark horse of the Premier League, even though it’s
only early days.
"At 2-0 I watched my players and they believed
everything was possible. You can lose, but you have to believe that anything is
possible”, said Ranieri.
Jamie Vardy brought Leicester level in the 72nd minute, before
Nathan Dyer scored the winning goal to send Villa packing.
Dyer’s headed goal came in heroic fashion, leaping into the
air before being cleaned up by Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan.
“Until I got up and the ref said ‘You’ve scored’ I

RONALDO’S FABULOUS FIVE
Cristiano Ronaldo has scored five goals in Real Madrid’s 6-0
thrashing of Espanyol.
The Portuguese marked his hat-trick inside the first 20
minutes, and broke one of the most prestigious records for the Spanish Giants.
Ronaldo’s fourth goal pushed him past Raul to become Real
Madrid’s all-time top scorer with 230 goals.
The fact that Ronaldo only needed 204 games compared to
Rauls 550, makes this achievement even more unbelievable.
MARTIAL’S MAGNIFICENT MANCHESTER DÉBUT GOAL
Anthony Martial scored a stunning début goal in United’s 3-1
win over rivals Liverpool on the weekend.
Watch here as the striker rips three players- Lucas Leiva,
Martin Skrtel and Nathaniel Clyne before cutely curling the ball past the
Liverpool goalkeeper Mignolet.
