Excellent Maddison, disappointing Vardy – The best and the worst-rated Leicester City stars vs Wolverhampton Wanderers

Leicester City player ratings vs Wolves: Who impressed and who did not?

Leicester City picked up their first win of the season against Nuno Espirito Santo’s men. The Foxes looked dangerous in the early stages of the game and threatened the Wolves’ goal a couple of times. But Claude Puel’s side were fortunate to see Matt Doherty’s header crash into his own net.

James Maddison then scored a neat goal to justify his impressive performances for the Foxes. Leicester were handed a small shock when Jamie Vardy was sent off in the second half for a lunging tackle on Doherty.

The Wolves came close to scoring on a couple of occasions with both Joao Moutinho and Raul Gimenez hitting the post, but Claude Puel’s men held tight to wrap up the three points.

Here, we take a look at how Leicester City’s stars fared as they picked up their first win of the season.

Leicester City player ratings

Kasper Schmeichel (6/10)

Schmeichel made a couple of match-winning saves to keep Leicester’s lead but otherwise endured a quiet match.

Ricardo Pereira (8/10)

The Portuguese international picked up his second assist in his second game. He has proven to be a massive asset for the Foxes down the right flank.

Jonny Evans (7/10)

Evans enjoyed a fruitful debut for his new club and looked solid at the back. His lack of pace almost cost the club on a few occasions though.

Harry Maguire (7/10)

Maguire once again proved how vital he is to this Leicester side. His positional play was brilliant in this game and the England defender barely looked out of place.

Ben Chilwell (6/10)

Chilwell was unable to provide while attacking but the youngster did well in the defence. He made a couple of vital interceptions in the final third.

Nampalys Mendy (5/10)

Mendy was often caught out of position and lost the ball a few times as well. The midfielder seemed to be shaky and sloppy in the middle of the park.

Wilfred Ndidi (7/10)

Ndidi once again worked wonders for his team in the middle of the park with his distribution and defensive work.

Marc Albrighton (8/10)

Albrighton’s creative presence in the final third posed a huge threat to the Wolves’ defence. In fact, he is undoubtedly their main source of supply.

James Maddison (9/10)

Maddison finally got his goal and almost scored another. The youngster seems well-settled and comfortable in his role.

Demarai Gray (7/10)

Gray’s runs down the left side caused a number of problems for the Wolves.

Jamie Vardy (5/10)

Vardy’s dangerous tackle on Doherty earned him a straight red card. The striker endured a troubled game against the Wolves.

Substitutes

Daniel Amartey (7/10)

Amartey came on and ensured the team saw out the win with his defensive contribution in the middle of the park.

Adrien Silva (5/10)

Silva was brought on in the final 10 minutes of the game and was unable to influence it further.

Kelechi Iheanacho (5/10)

Iheanacho was also brought on in the dying minutes but seemed to trouble the Wolves’ tired defenders.
