The Foxes ‘Dynamo’
’KDH’ just has to be on this list. The English midfielder makes the attack tock: he takes the ball from ‘tick’ Winks or anywhere across the wings, and links up with basically anyone. Usually this ends up on the left-wing with Stephy Mavididi, but otherwise it can end up on the right with Kasey McAteer/Abdul Fatawu or sometimes Jamie Vardy.
Dewsbury-Hall builds most of Leicester’s high quality chances. Almost everything will go through him at some point before it reaches the back of the net. Of all our players who appear week in and week out, KDH has the highest xG90+xA90 stats of any of our players. Kelechi Iheanacho is high up that list as well, although he appears less often than the Dynamo.
When the Englishman is isolated or not performing well, Leicester City can tell. The Foxes look significantly less clinical and creative without their Dynamo making things happen in the final third. Maresca must not dare take the talent out of the team.
