Losing a goal and consequently two points as late as 89 minutes into a game is always frustrating. To say the least. The fact that the Tractor Boys managed the same feat at an even later stage of the previous contest between the two makes for more Blue Army exasperation. Ipswich midfielder Sam Morsy scored in the 93rd at Portman Road in the reverse fixture, if you actually wanted to revisit that disappointment.

However, in spite of dropping four points against their closest rival for Championship glory and a return to the Premier League, the Foxes are flying this season. LCFC should definitely be promoted back to the top-flight at the end of the campaign, despite these minimal regrets and incidents. The Suffolk side will more than likely join the east Midlands outfit in the EPL for 2024/25 as well, much deservedly. Maresca's shift of ideals, or footballing revolution, continues on Filbert Way.

What Enzo Maresca said after Leicester City drew with Ipswich Town

Following the match, the Italian in charge of LCFC spoke to the media. Essentially, the Leicester manager was described as "not unhappy", regardless of the ultimately undesirable ending to the clash. Maresca's view was that the Foxes players were decent on the night.

Although, Pep Guardiola's ex-colleague did have to concede that the outcome was a "shame" due to his men leading for so long. Overall, Maresca declared himself "very happy" after the final whistle. You can read his quote below which includes a strong transfer indication:

"Ricardo tonight, he did very well. Probably in the last 10 or 15 minutes, we need something different in the middle. But it is what it is in this moment.

For sure, we didn’t expect the Cesare situation. We need to deal with that and we’ll see if we can do something before the transfer window closes.

Tonight, probably in the last 10 or 15 minutes, in the middle, we were tired. If you want to refresh, you need to find some solutions. Only this."
