Daniel Amartey features as Leicester City beat Southampton

Ghana defender Daniel Amartey starred as Leicester City came from a goal down to beat Southampton at the Saint Mary's in the English Premier League.

The 23-year-old played full throttle as the 2015/16 champions secured a 2-1 away win.

English left fullback Ryan Betrand opened the scoring for the Saints in the 52nd minute after a lacklustre first half.

Leicester City levelled four minutes later after Demarai Gray scored a spectacular goal in the 56th minute.

The game looked to be heading for a draw before England World Cup hero Harry Maguire found the back of the net to secure all three points for the Foxes.

Manager Claude Puel handed the Ghana defender the starting role against Southampton despite a poor start to the campaign against Manchester United.
