As was to be expected, the midfielder opted to kick in the middle, his favorite seat of his, for which Pickford did not forgive him.

The great performance of the English goalkeeper achieved two results: it prevented Leicester from winning the score 3-1 and, above all, it gave a boost to his team so that they could react in time and manage to level the game 2-2 thanks to a goal by the Nigerian Alex Iwobi.
