A brilliant display from Leicester City saw them thrash the newly promoted Burnley side 3 – 0.
Looking at the scoreline and goal-scorers, many would assume it was the Slimani show this afternoon but this detracts from the overall team effort.
It was a brilliant team performance along with a fantastic individual showing from the man himself who bagged himself two goals on his Premier League debut.
His countryman Riyad Mahrez seems to have woken up this week following his midweek freekick against Club Brugge.
Many criticised his performances in the opening games of the Premier League season, some saying he has looked lethargic.
Others saying that he has looked uninterested after signing his new contract. This wasn’t the case today.
His forward runs and dangerous crosses caused no end of problems for Burnley’s defence and it was his dangerous play that bought the 3rd goal as Ben Mee put the ball in his own net.
As for Burnley, it’s no wonder that they’re in the position that they’re in during the opening weeks of the Premier League.
After a fantastic performance against Liverpool they have failed to kick on with just 4 points from 5 games.
Unlike during their 2 – 0 win against Liverpool, Sean Dyche’s team look anything but a threat. Perhaps the scoreline that week flattered.
With just two shots on target work needs to be done on the training ground for the clarets.
Andre Gray who scored 23 goals last season had no service from his team-mates and when Burnley managed to get the ball back from Leicester, they were very sloppy in possession.
Leicester City’s next game see’s Chelsea travel from London with N’Golo Kante making his return to the King Power.
Another tough test for Claudio Ranieri’s men who have already faced Liverpool and Arsenal.
Conte’s team will be tough to breakdown despite conceding 2 goals against Liverpool on Friday in their 2 – 1 loss.
Leicester City however will be confident that if they play in the manner they played in today, that they’ll get a result.
