Wilfred Ndidi – 8 (Subbed on 63)

Still not 100% and was left flailing at a first half tackle to prove this. But as the game wore on his influence on the game grew with key passes in build up play. Hopefully not too long before Wilf is firing on all cylinders.

Youri Tielemans – 7 (subbed on 82)

The form of Tielemans does seem to be up and down, but with the football he has played in 2020 its not surprising he can look jaded. A wayward first half shot and some neat long and short passes.

Cengiz Under – 10 (MAN OF THE MATCH)

A real swaggering performance which kicked into gear with a ferocious goal that nearly broke the net. From then it was all dropped shoulders, heel flicks and long range shots as Athens looked terrified whenever he had the ball. The argument for him to be a first team starter is growing every week.

Harvey Barnes – 10

An equally sensational game for the Englishman. Dribbling whenever he got the chance and really keen to show what he can do with the ball at his feet. A tad lucky with his deflected goal but another constant menace to Athens. Could and should have added more goals to his impressive Europa league tally

Kelechi Iheanacho – 6 – (subbed on 67)

Left flailing too often and consistently choosing the wrong option when holding onto the ball for too long. Should have connected with a back-heel flick and should have been more of a threat against a weak team.


Nampalys Mendy – 8 – on from 63 minutes

Whats becoming more and more surprising with Mendy is how much he dictates the pace of the game. His passing is simple but the key is that there is a rhythm and tempo that urges his teammates to respond in kind. His arrival saw Leicester dominate more and more comfortably.

Ayoze Perez – 7 – on from 67 minutes

Following an impressive return in Yorkshire, Perez was given nearly half an hour up front as the lone striker for once. Although far from a great performance, he showed more aggression than Kelechi and nearly forced a goal in. Something to think about.

Wes Morgan – 7 – on from 82 minutes

A neat header and some efficient passing, but the game was done when he arrived.

Hamza Choudhury – 7 – on from 82 minutes

Neat and tidy arrival with typical energy from the big haired one.
