Leicester City Player Ratings
Kasper Schmeichel (6)
Question marks remain on whether the Dane could have done better to stop the Huddersfield goal or not. Apart from that, a comfortable afternoon.
Daniel Amartey (7)
A solid defensive performance from Amartey. Without a doubt, his best display in a Leicester shirt.
Jonny Evans (6.5)
Started the game little slowly but grew into it expertly. Probably needs more minutes.
Harry Maguire (7)
A commanding presence at the back for the Foxes all game long. Made a crucial block to deny Depoitre at a crucial juncture of the game.
Ben Chilwell (6.5)
He was defensively isolated at times but coped with the situation well. Was good going forward.
Wilfried Ndidi (6)
Got booked very early on in the game but held his head and played the game with supreme confidence.
Nampalys Mendy (6.5)
An impressive display from Mendy who won important challenges in the midfield and drove the team forward.
Rachid Ghezzal (5)
A mediocre performance from Ghezzal who struggled to provide the necessary threat from the wide areas.
Kelechi Iheanacho (8)
Scored the first goal with aplomb, teed up the third goal for Jamie Vardy. Was a constant threat to the Huddersfield defence.
James Maddison (8.5)
Another outstanding performance from the youngster which was capped off with an imperious free-kick from way out to score Leicester’s second goal.
Jamie Vardy (7.5)
Assisted the first goal with great timing and his goal was Jamie Vardy written all over it.
Demarai Gray (Subbed on after 46 mins) (6)
Replaced an ineffective Ghezzal and did well to add some sort of danger to the opposition defence.
Marc Albrighton (Subbed on after 77 mins) (6)
Came on to shore up the midfield and the wide areas.
Shinji Okazaki (Subbed on after 85 mins) (N/A)
Had no time to make an impact
