Leicester City player ratings vs Chelsea: Maguire and Ndidi impress

Leicester City bagged a point from their trip to the Stamford Bridge earlier today as the game ended in a goalless draw. Despite Ben Chilwell’s red card, the Foxes held on to clinch a point from the game.

The draw means Leicester remained in the top eight. Let’s take a look at how the Leicester players fared in the game…

Kasper Schmeichel 7/10

Schmeichel had a decent day between the sticks and he maintained his composure throughout the game. The keeper did really well to keep out Cesc Fabregas and Alvaro Morata in the first-half and thwarted Marcos Alonso in the second half.

Daniel Amartey 7/10

It was encouraging to see Amartey galloping forward occasionally and tracking back timely from the right-back position.

Aleksandar Dragovic 6/10

Dragovic struggled to find his feet initially as he was troubled by Morata in the first-half but steadied as the game progressed.

Harry Maguire 8/10

Arguably the best player for the Foxes against the Blues, Maguire was physically very dominant, made good use of the ball and kept Morata at bay.

Ben Chilwell 5/10

Chilwell had a game to forget as his two yellow card offences didn’t do his team any favours.

Wilfred Ndidi 7.5/10

The midfielder was an excellent distributor of the ball, showcased a lot of industry and was quite resilient as well.

Matty James 7.5/10

James linked up well with Ndidi, was combative in the middle and read the game well.

Riyad Mahrez 7.5/10

It is always exciting to watch the Algerian perform. The Algerian threatened Chelsea’s backline most of the times when he rushed forward, but lack the output today.

Shinji Okazaki 7/10

It was a complete performance by Okazaki who ran tirelessly and contributed to the defensive needs of his side more often than not.

Marc Albrighton 7/10

The winger injected plenty of pace and desire from the left-wing area and drove the attacking endeavours single-handedly on many occasions down the left.

Jamie Vardy 7/10

The Englishman might not have been clinical but his pace always kept the Chelsea defenders wary.


Substitutions

Christian Fuchs 6/10

He replaced Okazaki in the second half and added more solidity.

Demarai Gray 5.5/10

Gray replaced Vardy in the second half, but he couldn’t have a substantial impact.

Vicente Iborra N.A

The Spaniard replaced James in the dying minutes of the game.
