Good day: James Maddison
England Under-21s manager Ady Boothroyd does not believe Leicester man is ready to step up to senior squad but, on this showing, he is surely not far off being called up by Gareth Southgate.
Bad day: Laurent Depoitre
His physical presence and ability to hold up the ball brought a welcome added dimension to Town’s attack. But strikers are judged on goals and he missed two gilt-edged opportunities.
Key moment: 65th minute
Just three minutes after Depoitre had allowed Harry Maguire to rob him at one end, James Maddison put Leicester ahead with an exquisite free-kick.
Ref watch: David Coote
A tad erratic on what was only his third top-flight appearance, the official’s failure to book Erik Durm for a cynical shirt tug on Harry Maguire rightly incurring wrath of home fans.
Decent performance from Town, who carried a threat at times in attack. But at this level teams have to capitalise when chances come along as well as cutting out basic errors. Town did neither. Mathias ‘Zanka’ Jorgensen admits his first goal in English football was a mere consolation.
Quote of the day It was good to score but it is difficult to stand here and smile about a goal or be happy.
