MUSA’S MAGIC FIRES FOXES PAST TOFFEES
EVERTON 1 LEICESTER 2
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.
