With Gareth Southgate visiting, seemingly to watch Maddison vs Grealish and decide which one will he call up next month, this turned out a missed opportunity for Grealish, out due to injury. Instead Leicester City’s England hopeful players seemed to rise to the occasion and show a selection worthy performance.
The player’s rose to the occasion and let’s check out what Social Media has to say:
Had to begin with his reaction, loved it and the fact he was saying pretty much what every LCFC fan was thinking; what a performance by the young left back Luke Thomas. Man of the Match worthy, under the observation of the England manager, who would have soon realized why LCFC didn't mind selling England starter Ben Chilwell.
Loved to see this kid running up and down the line today. Future of @lcfc is bright! Very proud. https://t.co/okPBAWQihA— Christian Fuchs (@FuchsOfficial) February 21, 2021
Perfect Opportunity to show the England Manager what he is missing out when not selecting him. Rose to the Occasion! Albeit hopeful the injury does not lead to missing games!
As a Coventry boy playing for @lcfc scoring against the Villa is a bloody good feeling Great 3 points #JM10 pic.twitter.com/no5LTinmmO— James Maddison (@Madders10) February 21, 2021
Leicester City’s talisman, while he didn't get on the scoresheet played an important role in the match stretching the defenses and holding up the ball.

What a performance by the young left back! Calm, collected and great exchanges with Barnes on the left hand side.
A barnstorming performance in front of the England manager should do the Man of Match’s chances for an England call up no harm.
"A massive win." ✊— Leicester City (@LCFC) February 21, 2021
