Video Bournemouth 4 - 1 Leicester City: Disastrous second-half sees Foxes suffer defeat

It was two minutes of madness that could come to define Leicester City’s season.

Presented with an opportunity to return to the top three and boost their belief in their Champions League dream, City blew it at their bogey ground in a loss totally of their own making.

Ahead and cruising at the break thanks to Jamie Vardy’s bundled goal, four calamitous moments in a little over 60 seconds in the second half sent City to defeat.

First, Kasper Schmeichel booted a goal kick at his own man to put Bournemouth in on goal. Second, Wilfred Ndidi tripped Callum Wilson, allowing Junior Stanislas to convert.

Third, Jonny Evans misread a header and Dominic Solanke escaped to score a second for the hosts. Fourth, Caglar Soyuncu immaturely retaliated and earned a red card.

If City fail to finish in the Champions League places, and a win for Manchester United on Monday night will push them down to fifth, then those four moments will be what is remembered.

City will hold out hope that the Court of Arbitration for Sport rules against Manchester City on Monday morning and fifth place becomes a Champions League spot. But if it doesn’t and City miss out on a place at Europe’s top table, they can only have themselves to blame.
