Huddersfield 1 - Leicester 1, positives and negatives, player ratings and match report

DATE: 17.09.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK

 

A difficult away game against a newly promoted side that has done well in the season opening. Shakespeare needed to get something out of the game, at least a point, and he did

City had to start with a different team and as predicted Iheancho got his starting debut, and Ben Chilwell started at left back instead of Christian Fuchs who was out with an eye injury.

TCF believed that Vicente Iborra also would have made the starting line-up, in the absence of Matty James, but Andy King kept his place in midfield and was among the best players in the City team, and the former Seville captain never entered the field, but was named on the bench.

City struggled in the first half, not being able to put Huddersfield under pressure, rather the opposite happened. Wagner, the Huddersfield manager, has a good organised team in a "German" style, and they will fight for every point and to get them at home is crucial.

The first half was a dull affair, when talking about Leicester, but Wagner must have been satisfied with the performance. City never looked a treath and the attempts from Riyad Mahrez never became great chances and easy for their Danish goalkeeper Jonas Lössl.

Two danes in goal for each team in a Premier League game is not usual, but both could be proud of their performance, being among the best players on the pitch, looking at the game for the full 90 minutes.

The first half ended 0-0 and City must be most satisfied with that result, since Huddersfield had the most chances and were close to scoring. Midfielder Aaron Mooy is one that really impressed and kept the midfield together.

Shakespeare must have given the players sleeping pills before 2nd half, because just after the kick-off suddenly City were 1-0 down. Newly signed Belgian international Laurent Depoitre scored after just a minute play.

To see Huddersfield taking the lead was no surprise, they were the better team. But after the goal City managed to get a bit more pressure and started to produce chances.

Andy King went down inside the penalty area and it was clear fault. City got a chance to get back in the game. Jamie Vardy scored with great security and it was even again.

The game more or less faded out with Shakespeare again making changes that never changed the game and taking off Vardy was on we could not really understand, but it was late in the game and nothing happend.
 

So to sum up the game, here are our positvies and negatives, player ratings and match stats,

Positives:
Solid performance from City, getting a point away
Hard working Vardy, goes on and on, despite not getting much to work with
Andy King showing quality, will he be able to play on regular basis
Iheancho getting his starting debut, still a bit "rusty", but hopefully he will be the player to play alongside Vardy
Getting back after being a goal down

Negatives
Not able to produce enough chances to win against a newly promoted side
Shakespeare taking off a forward pairing that should have played all 90 minutes
Mahrez chances and passes not being converted to goals

Player ratings:
Schmeichel 7, Simpson 6, Maguire 7, Chilwell 7, Morgan 7, Ndidi 6, King 7, Mahrez 6, Vardy 7, Iheancho 6, Albrighton 6
