Youri Tielemans fires first-touch laser from well outside the box (video)

Youri Tielemans hits the top corner with a breathtaking strike from distance to get Leicester City off to a fast start against Brentford.

Youri Tielemans is putting together a collection of stunning goals.

The Belgian midfielder made Brentford pay for a stretch of early failures to strike and gave Leicester City an emphatic opener when he belted a partially-cleared header home on a laser line.

Just think of this guy in the same midfield with Kevin De Bruyne for Belgium. That is unfair in a sort of Xavi - Andres Iniesta for Spain way (We won’t got Ndidi = Busquets but you know what we’re saying here).


Tielemans hits the ball with such venom that it zips back out of the goal and rolls beyond the six.

The 24-year-old now has three goals and two assists in Premier League play this season, running his PL record to 15 goals and 17 assists in 97 appearances.

Check out the goal atop this post.
