Leicester City face Leeds United for the first time this season as they travel to Elland Road on Monday night.

It’s the first time the Foxes have played Leeds in a league competition since 2014 when both clubs were in the Championship, it is also the first time both sides have met in the Premier League since the 2003-2004 season.

The same year the Foxes secured a memorable result against Leeds when they visited the then Walkers Stadium. However, it was a season which saw both teams ultimately relegated from the Premier League.

It was the Foxes' first season back in the top-flight having come straight back up following relegation the season before. Having had two draws and two loses in their first four games, the Foxes were looking to get their first win of the season under their belt.

Fiery Foxes

Leicester got off to a flying start and could have gone 1-0 up after 90 seconds when James Scowcroft forced Leeds keeper Paul Robinson to make a low save following a header.

They got what they deserved after 20 minutes when French Midfielder Lilian Nalis struck a stunning volley from 25 yards when he latched onto a loose defensive header, hitting the ball first time into the top right corner leaving goalkeeper Robinson no chance.

They got a second three minutes later when Paul Dickov chested the ball brilliantly bringing the ball down and sticking it low in the bottom left corner to make it 2-0.

A bad day at the office for Leeds

At the start of the second half Leeds came out of the traps quickly trying to turn the game around but never really challenged the Leicester defence throughout the whole game

All the chances fell to the  Foxes and debutant Marcus Bent who was on loan from Ipswich could have gotten himself two goals early on, driving a low fierce shot wide of the post then failing to latch onto a long ball making keeper Robinson run out of his area to head clear.

City finally got their third after 83 minutes when Dickov cleverly turned past a Leeds defender at the edge of the box and slotted the ball into the bottom corner to get his second.

The rout was completed in the 90th minute and it was no more than Leicester deserved, when Scowcroft was left unmarked from a free kick and powerfully headed the ball into the back of the net to make it 4-0. It finished off an incredible performance from the Foxes and sent supporters home happy that night.
