For the third season in a row, Leicester City lost at home to Manchester City without registering a goal. So who were the players that left the game looking strong and who might be worrying about their place in the team?
(Note: a rating of 7 indicates an acceptable performance)
KASPER SCHMEICHEL – 6
A strange one for the big Dane, made plenty of decent saves but ultimately it was a poor kick that gifted possession and led to the winning goal. Distribution was back to poor levels again with the caveat that it needs to be perfect against the likes of Manchester City if you’re to have any success.
TIMOTHY CASTAGNE – 7
Surprisingly selected ahead of Ricardo Pereira, the masked Belgian had a decent game with a tricky task having to marshal the £100million pound man Jack Grealish. He stuck to his task well and limited him mainly to crosses but was unable to add any serious attacking threat with defensive shape taking priority.
JANNIK VESTERGAARD – 7
The first Leicester City start for Kaspers ‘Danish friend’ was a promising full debut. He looked assured on the ball, incredibly strong and threw himself desperately in front of chances. Also offered physical presence on set-pieces which Leicester City have been sorely lacking.
