Leicester City again struggled to put together a complete performance in a 1-1 draw with Bournemouth. The team lacked any sort of edge and squandered countless opportunities, but stole a point with a last-second free kick.
Kasper Schmeichel - 6
Didn’t have too much to do on the day and was unable to save Josh King’s penalty. His distribution was still not up to his lofty standards.
Daniel Amartey - 5
Was a surprise starter but had little time to make an impact as he was subbed off with an injury in the 19th minute.
Wes Morgan - 6
The captain made little impact in the game but also avoided any glaring mistakes.
Harry Maguire - 8
He found himself very far forward very often on the day but did so to great effect. In fact, he led the team with seven shots on the day, and looked like he could have scored on a number of them.
Christian Fuchs - 7
Had to change his role after Amartey’s injury, but remained productive with four tackles.
Wilfred Ndidi - 7
Nine aerial duels won, four tackles, four clearances, and three interceptions. Wilf is a consistent presence for the Foxes.
Adrien Silva - 5
Looked aggressive at times and positive in his intentions, but was wasteful with those opportunities.
Matty James - 5
Almost the exact opposite as Silva. He didn’t make many mistakes, but was passive throughout the match.
Riyad Mahrez - 7
It was a weird day for Mahrez as he was consistently wasteful with possession, only to end up as the hero with his last-second equalizing free kick.
Jamie Vardy - 6
Didn’t have much to do despite the late onslaught of chances for the team.
Marc Albrighton - 4
Albrighton was a disaster playing out of position. He gave the ball away in dangerous areas, struggled to complete passes at his normal rate, and clumsily tackled his man who was standing with back to the goal on the edge of the box.
Ben Chilwell - 7
Came on as the replacement for Amartey and contributed on both ends of the pitch.
Kelechi Iheanacho - 5
Didn’t make any sort of meaningful impact as a 58th minute substitute.
Fousseni Diabaté - 5
Came on as a late sub in the 78th minute and didn’t do much with his time.
Once again the Foxes appeared to be the more dangerous team for large periods of the match but were still lucky to come away with a point. Though Riyad Mahrez’s heroics were almost enough, it is Harry Maguire whose performance earned my Man of the Match designation.
