Sigurdsson’s dazzling 50th goal sinks 10-man Leicester for Everton 2-1

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.

That goal ended 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.

However, Morgan’s 63rd-minute dismissal — both yellows were for fouls on Richarlison — ended their ambitions.(Reuters/NAN)
