Leicester City has taken the lead against Crystal Palace with a stunning goal from Ricardo Pereira. The goal has lifted Leicester above Palace in the as-it-stands table. Meanwhile, Arsenal is cruising to an eight-point lead at the top of the table after a superb performance against Leeds. Granit Xhaka’s header has restored Arsenal’s three-goal lead, and Gabriel Jesus has scored his second goal of the day.
In other matches, Brighton has been awarded a penalty after Aaron Hickey handled Deniz Undav’s goalbound shot. Lewis Dunk missed a great chance for Brighton, whose xG has apparently been through the roof in the second half. Brentford is ahead for the third time, with Ethan Pinnock getting the goal.
The late 1990s saw Patrick Kluivert at his best, arguably the best centre-forward in the world. Kluivert and Ruud van Nistelrooy were born on the same day, 1 July 1976, and if you combined their careers, you’d have one of the all-time greats. Leicester’s manager, Brendan Rodgers, has been a victim of his own success at Leicester, punching well above the weight with a thin squad that had an excellent XI and not so many options on the bench for the league marathon.
