Victor Kristiansen: 2

An extremely poor showing for the 20-year-old. Completely turned inside out by Jack Harrison on multiple occasions including the first goal. His lack of willingness to play any pass with an ounce of difficulty continuously put the Foxes in difficult situations. Especially when attempting to beat the Leeds press. One to forget for the Dane.

Boubakary Soumare: 7

Like most of the side after conceding the goal Soumare seemed to be overwhelmed by the engulfing Elland Road atmosphere. Before going behind the Frenchman dominated his duels and was dictating the tempo along with Youri Tielemans. However, once going behind his on-the-ball work seemed to be much more rushed and less composed. Numerous times the holding midfielder would play back into dangerous areas when the better option would have been to open up his body and spread the play. He did improve and showed some great feats of strength and defensive fortitude in the second period. Not by any means a bad performance, but there were some areas of concern.

Youri Tielemans: 6

Extremely unfortunate to have seen his early wonder strike disallowed it was a very up and down game for LCFC’s captain. Like for his goal there were moments of immense quality but they were coupled with lethargic tackles and misplaced passes. You couldn’t question his effort but his end product in the final third when trying to break down the oppositions deep block was much to be desired.

James Maddison: 8

With the not being particularly impactful in the first period like the rest of the side “Madders” turned a corner in the second. He looked unplayable when he got the ball in the right areas, his run before he assisted Vardy’s equaliser was exceptional something that will unlikely go unnoticed. More than likely should of also had a second if Patson Daka had opted to shoot and not square the ball too an offside Vardy. However, Leicester’s number 10  really stepped up when his side needed it most and ensured a point for his side.

Tete: 3

It seems as though his man of the match performance against Aston Villa in his debut was an aberration. His direct technical style of play has not been seen since. The Brazilian seemed too afraid to attempt any take-ons. Which on multiple occasions resulted in the winger turning and moving the ball back out of dangerous areas, time and time again. Completely ineffective.
