Best Team Performance - Leicester vs. Southampton (5-0)

A terrific home win that left the Foxes at the brink of promotion. Fatawu stole the show with a hat trick, with Vardy and Wilfred Ndidi joining him on the score sheet.

Honorable Mentions - Stoke City vs Leicester (0-5), Southampton vs Leicester (1-4)

Best Individual Performance - Hamza Choudhary vs. West Bromwich Albion (H)

Maresca said that the win against West Brom was ‘lucky’ and rightly so. Leicester just about held on to their slender 2-1 lead against the barrage of West Brom attacks. It was not all luck, though.

An inspired Hamza Choudhary made three brilliant goal-line clearances and some good interceptions. On the back of two consecutive defeats, this was a must-win game for promotion. This win not only gave Leicester some breathing space in the race for promotion but also was a great morale boost for the players. All thanks to Choudhary.

Honorable Mentions - Fatawu vs. Southampton (H), KDH vs. Coventry (H)

Best Goal - Vardy vs. Blackburn Rovers (A)

Vardy controlled a low Ndidi cross superbly with a single touch before scoring an absolute belter from a tight angle with his weaker foot.

Honorable Mentions - James Justin vs. Cardiff City (A), Pereira vs. Watford (A)
