Tielemans and Maddison led Leicester to a 2-1 win over Brentford

Youri Tielemans demonstrated why Leicester is so desperate to have him sign a new contract. James Maddison scored the first goal of the season against Brentford in the Premier League.

Tielemans and Maddison led Leicester to a 2-1 win over Brentford

In the 13th minute Leicester took the lead. Tielemans' headed clearance fell to Leicester, who then smashed it home from 25 meters (meters).

The Foxes are concerned that Tielemans' contract will expire in 2023 and they will need to sell Tielemans next summer. Or risk losing their treasured asset for nothing one year later.

Mathias Jorgensen brought Brentford to a level match on the hour, but Tielemans helped Maddison score his first goal since February.

Tielemans' throughball allowed Patson Daka to substitute Jamie Vardy and race clear to square the ball for Maddison, who was able to tap into an empty goal.

With 14 points from nine matches, Leicester is ninth. This is two points more than Brentford's first Premier League campaign.
