Leicester Striker Islam Slimani Baffles Fans With Bizarre Attire in Defeat to Everton

Ben Dillon

Sunday may have been the hottest day of the year so far, but it would seem even the soaring temperatures were not quite enough for Leicester's Algerian striker Islam Slimani. 

It would seem as though the Foxes' forward feels the cold, as he sported a pair gloves in the Spring sun, much to the amusement of twitter. 


The 28-year-old, who has scored seven Premier League goals this season, had levelled the scores at 1-1 against Everton, after Tom Davies had opened the scoring for the Toffees after just 30 seconds. 

Albrighton then put the Foxes back in front with a superb free-kick, before a Romelu Lukaku brace and a Phil Jagielka goal claimed all three points for Ronald Koeman's side. 

The defeat was Craig Shakespeare's first in charge of Leicester, since taking over from Claudio Ranieri. 

Despite the score, at least Slimani's gloves gave the Leicester fans something to laugh about. Although, Slimani's gloves will never be quite as bizarre as the Marouane Chamakh snood... 

Hopefully it will be warmer in Madrid on Wednesday, when Leicester take on Atletico Madrid in a Champions League Quarter-Final clash with Diego Simeone's side.

The Foxes look as though they will be without club captain Wes Morgan as they look to keep Antoine Griezmann quiet at the Vicente Calderon.
