Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall – 6

KDH offers Leicester City a lot: passing, progression, goal threat, and defensive pressure. We saw all of this later in the first half, however this was not seen early in the half, where the player was unable to set the tempo and control midfield. Luckily, the English midfielder saw joy supporting rushing wing-backs and Madders.

The player missed another golden opportunity for the Foxes as Barnes put in a brilliant cross towards the edge of the penalty box. He should have scored and equalised for Leicester. On top of that, defensively he offered little.

James Maddison – 8 (Taken off)

JM10 remains integral to the way the Foxes create and score chances. All open-play goes through the maestro, and today was no different. In the first half, from the get go he offered talented flare to retain the ball, and creative vision to penetrate defensive plays. All that could have improved his first half would have been a goal.

Kelechi Iheanacho – 6 (Taken off)

The Nigerian striker did not find form during the fixture. Leicester got the player involved frequently enough to impact the match as the forward links up well with rushing wing-backs and the ever-present English attacking-midfielder. However, Iheanacho did not score despite a chance and sometimes chose the wrong pass crushing an opportunity.
