Harvey Barnes: 4

Had one of the better chances in the second half but could not find the top corner with his effort. It just didn’t seem to be the winger’s night. Although this may have something to do with the inefficient performance by Kristiansen, as Barnes has struggled much of the season without a competent full back on the outside or inside of him. He had little to no opportunities to show his quality, not his most impactful night.

Kelechi Iheanacho: 5

Played an excellent part in the goal even despite seemingly pulling his groin in the process. His play throughout the contest was good a times, not his most efficient display partly due to his lack of service. But much like the rest of the City side inconsistent until in his end product.


Jamie Vardy: 7

Without a shadow of a doubt the most impactful and quality filled display that we’ve seen from the number nine this season. Wonderfully taken goal, as well as brilliantly dangerous movement from the moment he stepped onto the pitch he gave the home sides defence all sorts of issues and continuously forced them to turn and face their own goal. Something that all defenders hate to do.

You could argue that he shouldn’t have been offside for the goal, but I think that would be extremely harsh, as the most dangerous the Foxes looked all game was when Vardy stepped onto the pitch. Hopefully this will be just the start of Vardy’s goal scoring form as the Foxes enter the last five games of the season.

Patson Daka: 6

Provided what Barnes could not and stretched the Leeds defence on numerous occasions, he could of shown more composure at times during the later stages. He also probably should of taken the shot on when going clean through in the latter stages, instead of opting to square the ball to Vardy who was unfortunately in an offside position. It would have most likely given Leicester all three points. Perhaps a more confident Daka would have, nonetheless a good showing off the bench.

Next. Leicester loanee Nathan Opoku is cooking in Belgium. dark

Dennis Praet: 5

Coming on for the injured Iheanacho with little time left in the game even with City pushing for the winner Praet didn’t have much of an effect on the outcome. Thus a five is given.
