Leicester U.23 2 - Chelsea U.23 0, positives and negatives, player ratings and match report

DATE: 27.09.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK

 

Well home in Norway after two great football games watched at different places in Leicestershire. Visiting Whetstone is always nice, home friendly atmosphere and this game also see City win

We arrived late, coming 10 minutes into the game, but at that time there were no goals. City had first team players Yohan Benalouane and Ahmed Musa in the team. Hamza Choudhury and Josh Knight, both making their first team debuts this season, were also in the starting 11.

We never got time to sniff around and look after our heroes around the ground, but seen from pictures afterwards a great number of celibrities were present including first team manager Craig Shakespeare.

Shakespeare must be pleased with this performance and probably got a good night sleep before the Liverpool game the day after. TCF has not seen the U.23's or reserves for a while, but great to watch this team, maybe one of the best U.23 teams fielded by Leicester City.

Everything looked settled and well prepared by Beaglehole, who is doing a grand job on the development side of football at Leicester. He has been around since the start of this century and really put his mark on the job done.

New young players coming through and youth internationals are often to see in a Leicester City shirt. Daniel Iversen, Denmark, Alexandru Pascanu, Rumania, Geoff Thomas, Wales and Darnel Johnson, England, were all playing this evening and they all looked solid.

Thomas, who scored both goals, in this good performance, and in the end 2-0 win, is also doing the same for Wales U.21. In his U.21 debut v. Switzerland earlier in September he netted the final goal in the great 3-0 win.

Newly signed Sam Hughes, who played in a sitting midfield role, in front of Knight and Benalouane, also showed qualities in this position. One player to watch is young midfielder Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall who looked controlled on the ball and very quick in his movement.

Good to see that things are in the best hands also in the U.23 team, and Chelsea never was a treath. Next game is against Hertha Berlin this Wednesday, this time at King Power, enjoyable, hopefully a new win for City.

Positives:
Showing strength in all areas, playing controlled and well settled
George Thomas scoring two, getting into the right positions at the right time, exciting prospect
Keeping one of the best U.23 teams in the league to a distance, which shows that things are done properly
Benalouane, despite getting a yellow, playing well, great positioning and leading by example
Scoring goals with few chances, shows quality finishing

Negatives
Musa, not at his best, should have done more

Player ratings:
Iversen 8, Pascanu 7, Benalouane 8, Knight 7, Johnson 6, Choudhury 6, D-Hall 7, Musa 5, Hughes 7, Thomas 8, Gordon 6
