By James Agberebi: Super Eagles forward Ahmed Musa was in action for 90 minutes but failed to find the back of the net as Leicester City U-23s came from behind to beat their Everton counterparts 2-1 in the Premier League 2 on Monday.
Other senior Leicester players who featured in the game were Eldin Jakupović and Yohan Benalouane.
A late brace from Tunisian Benalouane secured the comeback win for Leicester’s development squad.
Fraser Hornby had given Everton the lead in the 23rd minute before Benalouane drew Leicester level on 83 minutes.
And in the 88th minute, he scored the winner to end the game 2-1.
Following the win against Everton, Leicester U-23s have now extended their unbeaten run to 14 games in the PL 2.
The Foxes climbed back to second in the PL2 standings with 24 points from 12 matches, six below runaway leaders Liverpool, who have won 10 of their fixtures this term.
Musa is yet to taste action for Leicester’s first team in the Premier League so far this season.
