Leicester Should have beaten Sheffield Wednesday. There, I said it in it's simplest form. This does not mean that I am an Enzo Maresca critic. Far from it. The Italian remains an ideal manager at this stage for LCFC. He is also a fairly inexperienced head coach, so I think the Blue Army should give him some breathing space and gratitude, which most Foxes fans do.

Jeff Hendrick's goal for the Owls cancelled out Abdul Fatawu's opener for the visitors. This was a tough moment for supporters of the east Midlands outfit to take, especially coming in the 93rd minute of play. Yet, as so many have said previously, this is a 'long old season'. Maresca's men certainly didn't hold back, with twelve shots taken. Although, the bottom-placed Championship side actually out-shot LCFC. Furthermore, the away team failed to dominate their arguably lesser opponents, apart from a lot of often harmless ball retention. It is now more crucial for the King Power side bounce back in their subsequent fixture versus West Bromwich Albion at the Hawthorns.

When's Wout Faes back and what's the story with Leicester City midfielder Dennis Praet?

Leicester's Belgian defender was fielded at leftback against Wednesday in the week. Which was a rather strange decision by Maresca, in spite of a lack of options and amid rotation. Maybe the former Manchester City coach is sending a signal to LCFC chairman Top Srivaddhanaprabha that he requires a new signing for the left-side of defence.

Faes, uncomfortable on the night, is now a doubt for the West Bromwich match on Saturday. Meanwhile Praet seems to have been disregarded due to a strong substitutes' bench and only recently gaining fitness. The Belgium international is in the boss's thoughts.
