MUSA’S MAGIC FIRES FOXES PAST TOF­FEES

EVER­TON 1 LE­ICES­TER 2

The Football League Paper - - FA CUP THIRD ROUND -

AHMED Musa’s dou­ble saw Le­ices­ter City come from be­hind to dump Premier League ri­vals Ever­ton out of the FA Cup.

Af­ter a low key first pe­riod, Bel­gian striker Romelu Lukaku tapped home for the Tof­fees on 63 min­utes, be­fore Nige­rian front­man Musa, on for the in­jured Leonardo Ul­loa, took cen­tre stage.

His first goal was a scrappy ef­fort just two min­utes af­ter Lukaku broke the dead­lock, while his sec­ond was a mea­sured fin­ish from 12 yards just mo­ments later.

Ever­ton nearly equalised seven min­utes from time through Kevin Mi­ral­las, but Kasper Sch­me­ichel tipped his fierce drive around the post. How­ever, Clau­dio Ranieri’s men clung on for a place in the fourth round.
