Europa: Leicester City fans pleased with ‘huge’ win despite fresh injury blow

Leicester City fans are still celebrating their team’s outstanding outing against Legia Warsaw on Thursday in the Europa League.

Leicester City’s European adventure will continue in the new year after they lifted the malaise around the club with a 3-1 victory over Legia Warsaw.

A fast first half saw City bag three goals and secure their first win since late October, rising from bottom to top in their Europa League group.

While a draw is required at Napoli next month to guarantee they move into their current competition’s knockout stages – with a win needed to win the group and receive a bye to the last 16 – they are at least assured of third place in their pool, which earns a spot in the third-tier Europa Conference League.

City will hope the victory does more than just boost their Europa League chances and helps them re-discover their Premier League form too.

Leicester City were forced into a late change against Legia Warsaw with Jonny Evans dropping out of the side.

Evans had been named in the 11 for the crucial Europa League tie at the King Power Stadium but just minutes before kick-off he was replaced by Daniel Amartey.

Amartey had initially been moved to the bench as one of three changes from the side that lost to Chelsea, but came back alongside Caglar Soyuncu in a back four.

No reason has yet been given for Evans’ absence, with the Northern Irishman having taken part in the warm-up as normal.
