Leicester ground out a valuable win to cap off their festive period against Everton on New Year’s Day. 

The lunchtime kickoff was always going to be a slow-burner, and an incredibly dull first 45 minutes suggested no one would be able to breach a defence in the first game of 2019.

Michael Keane, however, had other ideas. Failing to control a high ball, Ricardo Pereira collected and slotted through to Jamie Vardy, who predictably did the rest.
