James Justin Scores Brilliant Goal For Leicester City Vs Stoke City

James Justin brought the heat to an extremely cold afternoon in Stoke as he gave Leicester City the lead in their FA Cup third round.


The FA Cup always provides some magic early in January and it was no different on Saturday as Chorley Town beat Championship Derby County, who were hit by Covid and having to play their youngsters.

It took just an hour till the next piece of magic of the cup as Justin put Premier League Leicester ahead against Championship Stoke City.

The full-back, playing on the left, beat two defenders as he cut inside with the ball, and then, from outside the area, unleashed a right footed striker past Josef Bursik.

The England under 21 goalkeeper, who only made his debut at that level in November, could do nothing but watch the ball sail past him in infatic fashion.

Justin joined Brendan Rodgers' side in June 2019 for a fee believed to be around £8 million and the 22-year-old has certainly proved to be worth the money.

The former Luton Town full back made 13 league appearances last season, helped by Ricardo Pereira's injury in the latter half of the campaign.

Pereira is yet to return to full fitness but the Foxes haven't missed him too much with Justin and Timothy Castagne both impressing.

Leicester are currently third in the Premier League table, just one point behind both Liverpool and Manchester United.
