Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall – 7

Looked typically smart and was in the mix in many of the best moves. Played the corner expertly for Leicester City’s goal and drove a shot directly at Martin Dubravka. It’s surprising that his energy levels were so good after his exertions in Eindhoven.

Ayoze Perez – 7

Some decent link-up play particularly in the first half and a sublime flick to set up Lookman for an expert training ground goal. Faded as the game wore and subbed on the hour which is understandable as this was his first start since Boxing Day.

Ademola Lookman – 7

Always a threat going forward and took his chance well in the first half. Guilty of taking too many touches when in front of goal and will need to change this quick to become a clinical attacker.

Patson Daka – 5

Works tirelessly as always but has stopped being dangerous for a long time. Needs to work on movement and making dangerous runs and playing on the shoulders of his centre backs, if he keeps studying the number nine he’ll be fine, but on this showing he’s got lots to learn from.


James Maddison – 6

Made little impact, possibly still feeling the game in Holland.

Kelechi Iheanacho – 6

Needed longer to make an impact and did little in his 12 minutes.

Hot. LCFC chairman a genuine football man who mixes with fans. light

Harvey Barnes – 6

The burst of pace and taking on his full-backs seems to have disappeared, is last season’s injury impacting his game? He’s not the same Leicester player from early 2021.
