Leicester City reignited their automatic promotion push to the Premier League with a thrilling 3-1 comeback win over Norwich City at the King Power Stadium on Monday.

This result temporarily places them at the top of the Championship table, although rivals Ipswich and Leeds United have yet to play their matches.

The Foxes clawed their way back from an early deficit after Gabriel Sara put Norwich ahead with a corner in the 20th minute. Leicester’s response was swift, with Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall equalizing just 13 minutes later.

Stephy Mavididi put Leicester in the lead just past the hour mark with a fantastic curling shot into the top corner.
