Daniel Amartey

The unlikely match winner on City's last trip to AMEX Stadium, Daniel Amartey.

Leicester City came from behind to emerge 2-1 victors in the last meeting between the two sides at AMEX Stadium in March 2021.

Adam Lallana’s early strike had the home side ahead after just 10 minutes, but Kelechi Iheanacho’s well-taken finish levelled matters shortly after the hour mark, following an inch-perfect pass from team-mate Youri Tielemans.

Ghanaian defender Daniel Amartey found the winner three minutes from time, heading in from Marc Albrighton’s corner to complete the comeback for Brendan Rodgers' side.
