Leicester City midfielder Youri Tielemans scored his first goal for the club since his move to the King Power Stadium during the winter transfer window.

Tielemans was on target as Leicester City secured just their second home win of 2019 via a 3-1 win over struggling Fulham in their Premier League clash on Saturday evening.

The Belgian international player was heavily linked with a loan transfer to Arsenal in January before signing for the Foxes on loan until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old was part of the Belgium squad that finished third at last summer’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.

It was the best outing made by the Red Devils of Belgium at a FIFA World Cup tournament.

Youri Tielemans was one of the standout performers in a poor Monaco side in the first half of this season before he made the decision to join Leicester City.

The Belgian midfielder has impressed a great deal in the few games he has played for the Foxes.

He scored the opening goal against Fulham before substitute Floyd Ayite equalised for Fulham in the second half.

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy then went on score two goals for his team to secure a 3-1 victory in what was Brendan Rodgers’ first home game since he was appointed manager towards the end of last month.
