Leicester fought from two goals down in the last 18 minutes to beat Aston Villa 3-2 and maintain their stunning start to the Premier League season

Having only just avoided relegation last season, unbeaten Leicester is second after five games under former Chelsea manager Claudio Ranieri. By contrast, defending champion Chelsea is seven points behind after losing three games.

Superb goals from Jack Grealish and Carles Gil had put Villa in command by halftime.

But Richie De Laet began Leicester's comeback in the 72nd minute, with a headed goal awarded thanks to goal-line technology.
