Ndidi in action for Leicester City

Leicester won easily against fellow underachievers Nottingham Forest to record their first Premier League victory in fine fashion.

Although the Brendan Rodgers’ men kicked off the match with three points behind their opponents, Cooper’s team were hoping to secure a win and move out of relegation zone.

Leicester City had a quick start and scored their first goal of the game in the 25th minute when Maddison’s shot was deflected into the goal by McKenna.

They increased their lead two minutes later when Barnes buried Vardy’s cutback, leaving Henderson with little chance.

When Maddison floated a stunning free kick into the post to double his tally of the game and produce Leicester’s third goals, leaving Forest goalie helpless.

On what would turn out to be a disastrous night for Cooper and Forest, Daka came off the bench to wrap up the thrashing and clinch all three points for the hosts.

Forest had three good scoring chances despite appearing lost, which is not surprising given their transfer activity.

Taiwo Awoniyi hit woodwork

Awoniyi missed the first scoring opportunity when he hit the woodwork, Lingard also had a chance but missed the opportunity, before Gibbs-White’s header went right into Ward’s arms.

Looking at the game, Forest made Leicester appear like a cozy mid-table team, which may indicate the challenge Cooper seriously need to sort out, if he doesn’t get sacked soon.
