Wilfred Ndidi- 6

The Nigerian was another player who made his comeback from injury this evening and it was a typical Ndidi performance. He was energetic throughout his 55 minutes, wasn’t afraid to stick a foot in and he got some important minutes under his belt. One of the Foxes better performers, although that wasn’t hard.

Hamza Choudhury- 5

The academy graduate didn’t really do a lot tonight, and with Ndidi in the side I don’t really get why he was playing when other young players could have made an impact. Hamza isn’t good enough on the ball to playing in a more advanced roll. Running about was about all he could muster.

Dennis Praet-4

It was a nothing performance from the ‘blonde god’. He was played in midfield tonight rather than  on the right wing, but he never got involved as the game just seemed to pass him, he was that bad. It was no coincidence that the Foxes looked sharper when he departed for Maddison. He’s definitely dropped off since his good start to the season.

Cengiz Under- 6 MOTM

The Turkish international was easily Leicester’s best player tonight, without doing a lot. A couple of classic long range shots offered a few good saves from their ‘keeper, but his decision making needs A LOT of work. There were too many times where he picked the ball up in the final third and failed to find Iheanacho or he delayed to long and lost the ball. However, without him the match would have been eyeball tearingly painful.

Harvey Barnes- 3

I think Harvey Barnes might be the most frustrating player I have ever seen. He was so non-existent today it hurt. Every time he got the ball -which wasn’t a lot – he either lost it or passed it back. Games like this are games where he should showcase his talent, not give the manager opportunities for him to dropped. Awful

Kelechi Iheanacho- 5

A so-so performance from the Nigerian. His hold up play was bad but then a minute later it was good, it was that kind of day for him and his teammates. He was badly let down by the service.
