A man of the match show from Kelechi Iheanacho helped Leicester romp to a 4-0 Europa League win over Braga.
The hosts began effectively with Iheanacho exhibiting nice dedication to open the scoring within the twenty first minute.
The Nigerian grabbed a second goal simply after the break when his fierce shot from outside the field flew past Matheus following a depraved deflection. Iheanacho then turned creator, offering a go to the back post which was tapped home by Dennis Praet.
Leicester then added some gloss to the scoreline via James Maddison, who lastly got his goal after a number of close calls.
Here are your Foxes player rankings from the King Power Stadium…
Kasper Schmeichel (GK) – 7/10 – Just the one save to make. Would think about he shall be rested for the rest of Leicester’s group games now.
James Justin (CB) – 8/10 – Mopped up a string of long balls, recording a excellent 5 interceptions in whole.
Wesley Fofana (CB) – 7/10 – Rarely if ever examined by the guests to be trustworthy. Looked good on the ball.
Christian Fuchs (CB) – 8/10 – Ingenious long throw led to the game’s opener. A number of sloppy moments in possession but was very strong, making three blocks within the first half alone.
Marc Albrighton (RWB) – 7/10 – Enthusiastic show as all the time. His thrust down the right hand side was vital to the Foxes’ dominance.
Youri Tielemans (CM) – 7/10 – Will this man ever stop operating? Probably not. Keeps up his record of starting each single game this season – besides that Carabao Cup abomination towards Arsenal.
Hamza Choudhury (CM) – 8/10 – Read the game brilliantly, registering 4 interceptions. Also handled us to a few heroic blocks and a few nice passes.
Luke Thomas (LWB) – 7/10 – Continues to look more harmful than Justin when deployed on the left. Some of his crossing was unimaginable.
Cengiz Under (RW) – 7/10 – Pressed very effectively, creating a couple of good opening along with his onerous work. Occasionally lacked that final ball but looked promising total.
Kelechi Iheanacho (ST) – 9/10 – An unconventional method to open the scoring but a goal’s a goal. He deserved his lucky second and registered an assist as effectively – even when it was 100% a scuffed shot. His unimaginable efficiency was a nice response to being left out towards AEK Athens last week.
James Maddison (LW) – 9/10 – Drifted inside from the left and offered some magic moments. Set up Iheanacho for the opener and eventually got his goal close to the end after a string of close to misses.
Wes Morgan – 6/10 – Shored issues up. Was nice enjoyable seeing him play alongside fellow Premier League winner Christian Fuchs.
Dennis Praet – 7/10 – Made a sensible run and was rewarded with a goal.
Ayoze Perez – 7/10 – Was on the pitch for simply over 20 minutes and got an assist. What more are you able to ask for?
Harvey Barnes – 6/10
