Premier League Player Ratings: Leicester City 0 - 5 Crystal Palace

Truly ugly stuff from the Foxes of Leicester City.

That was bad. So very bad. Leicester City traveled to Selhurst Park where Crystal Palace smashed any leftover hope for City’s season. The final scoreline of 5-0 was fitting as it was a reflection of not just this matchup, but the current run of form for the Foxes.


Ben Hamer - 5

The scoreline wasn’t really his fault but... five goals.

Marc Albrighton - 4

Worked harder than most while he was on the pitch. Problem is he was sent off of it in the 56th minute with a straight red card.

Wes Morgan - 4

Didn’t do himself any favors in his fight to keep his spot.

Harry Maguire - 4

Pretty miserable performance on both ends of the pitch that fittingly culminated in giving away a penalty.

Ben Chilwell - 5

Part of the very major problem in defense but wasn’t the primary culprit.

Riyad Mahrez - 5

Loose with the ball and offered very little of his creative spark.

Wilfred Ndidi - 5

Not at his sharpest and was unlucky to pick up a seemingly significant injury at such an inopportune time. Get well soon, Wilf!

Hamza Choudhury - 4

Subbed off at the half without having made a mark on the proceedings.

Demarai Gray - 4

Virtually invisible throughout the game. Probably should have been subbed off instead of Kelechi Iheanacho.

Kelechi Iheanacho - 6

Speaking of Kelechi, he was unlucky to be one of the two players sacrificed at the half. He once again connected the midfield to attack well and played some clever moves.

Jamie Vardy - 5

Had just nine touches in the full 90 minutes, but he can’t really be blamed for the utter lack of supply from his teammates.

Adrien Silva - 5

Came on at the half and failed to stop the bleeding.

Fousseni Diabaté - 5

Made a few bright moves with the ball at his feet but they didn’t accomplish much.

Aleksander Dragovic - 5

Was the emergency replacement for Ndidi after his 50th minute injury. He handled the onslaught better than the rest of the backline.


A miserable performance in every way. If there was any bright spot at all it was a tiny one - like so small you have to squint to see it - and that was the 45 minutes of effort from Kelechi Iheancho, for which he is rewarded Man of the Match honors.
