In general, Leicester were in control and consummate masters of their own destiny against Huddersfield on New Year's Day. A three-goal margin settled the affair at King Power Stadium. Young Foxes striker Tom Cannon bagged a brace, while Ricardo Pereira grabbed a goal and an assist on the day. Stephy Mavididi scored the other, and James Justin supplied another goal to round off proceedings.
However, it took approximately 40 minutes for the east Midlands team to open the scoring. Cannon's expertly smashed home goal was his maiden one for LCFC. You can see the well-taken finish below.
I actually prefer the former Everton man's second. The movement coupled with the composed nature of the passing at the back is ideal from defenders and integrated midfielders. The ball over the top takes me back to the combination of Danny Drinkwater and Jamie Vardy in the acclaimed, sublime and bewildering Premier League title-winning 2015/16 season. But it is the totally legal shoulder barge in the coming together which hands Cannon ample opportunity to slot away. Keep your eye on this centreforward; I wonder how he'll fare in the EPL next season? Fingers crossed, anyway.
What Leicester City manager Enzo Maresca said after the Foxes dismantled Huddersfield Town
LCFC head coach Maresca was "happy" for Cannon at full-time. The Italian declared that Patson Daka deserved recent chances, which were taken. Adding that he is pleased the 21-year-old has now had the same impact.
