The `Foxes` took a comfortable lead early on, after leading by two goals until the 23rd minute. James Madison opened the scoring in the 19th minute. A long pass to Vardy hit Barnes, who dropped the ball in Madison`s way.

Aston Villa had creative problems in the absence of his injured captain Jack Greenish. However, at the beginning of the second half Birmingham returned one goal. Target crossed from the left, John McGinn attacked the ball on the near post, then it reached Traore, who shot Schmeichel from the edge of the small penalty area with an air shot. Madison and Vardy missed a good situation, and in added time Villa was very close to pulling the buckle after Mings headed in a cross from the right, but the ball went to the side. In the end, Leicester deservedly congratulated themselves with a victory and already has a three-point lead over Manchester United, which later tonight hosted Newcastle.
