Leicester 3 - Leeds 1, positives and negatives, player ratings and match report

DATE: 25.10.2017 - THE CUNNING FOX - NEWSDESK

 

Michael Appleton made a number of changes to the starting line-up. He did well in his selection and played a 4-4-2 which in a way had to "gell" durng the match and as soon as it klicked it became a good performance

Leeds had also made a number of changes to their team and it is always difficult to see the outcome of two teams just put together for the occasion. King captained the side and played alongside Iborra who looks more and more like "the captain" he was at Sevilla.

Iheanacho and Slimani is a forward line few could keep on the bench and to see them together was good. Both players are eager to show their worth and with one goal each and really contributing, you would say that they are too good to be left on the bench.

The problem for Shakespeare and Ranieri in the past is that they have both used "big money" on players they are not using enough. Then they will over time reduce the capacity of the player and get less value for money.

Leeds took the lead from a distance shot by Hernandez, Hamer was not to blame. City equalised just minutes after when Kelechi Iheanacho curled a ball into the corner from outside the penalty area, great goal by the Nigerian international.

Iborra especially, controlled the midfield area as we would like to see it. The full back duo Ben Chilwell and Daniel Amartey both played up to their very best level.

Appleton kept in form players, Maguire, Albrighton and Iborra in the team from the winning side at Swansea. They all showed what they were made of and never let Leeds into the game after the Iheancho goal.

2nd half was one owned by Leicester, and they showed why they are a league above Leeds. The leading goal by Slimani was one taken out of the "handbook", with a great deep pass through from Iborra to Iheanacho, and unselfishley playing a straight pass for Slimani to just push over the goal line.

Mahrez came on for Albrighton and showed what he can do in a very short period of time. He was just handed 10 minutes or so, but managed to score with a great goal, dribbling a couple of players and curling the ball down in the left side corner.

Iborra was the one passing the ball to Mahrez and he was close to be the best player on the pitch, but Daniel Amartey was for TCF the one impressing the most with a great game on right back, doing the attack and defence in the best way possible
