A stalemate at the King Power stadium as Leicester City drew with Chelsea in a goalless but entertaining encounter.
It was Leicester’s first 0-0 draw since Brendan Rodgers took charge in February, however both sides will be ruing missed chances.
Both teams seemed to have everything except for quality in finishing. Jamie Vardy had multiple chances he would have been expected to do better with. Ross Barkley also had a great early opportunity denied by Kasper Schmeichel.
It was also a game of goodbyes for the Foxes, as two of their Premier League title winners in Shinji Okazaki and Danny Simpson both came on to a standing ovation from the home fans to play their final minutes in a Leicester shirt.
Rodgers can now turn his attention to the summer. As the transfer window opens he will try and strengthen his Leicester side, while also trying to not lose any of their key players.
Here’s how we rated the Leicester players:
Kasper Schmeichel - 7
Schmeichel wasn’t troubled too much in the Leicester goal. He made a good early stop to deny Barkley but wasn’t forced into much else.
Ricardo Pereira - 7
In the first half Pereira was constantly threatening Chelsea, always looking to go forward down the wing. The second half was much quieter in that regard, but he still did a great job in defence.
Jonny Evans - 7
Evans once again showed his quality in the Leicester back-line, he shut out everything around him and was confident on the ball bringing it out of the back.
Harry Maguire - 7
Maguire was solid in defence against Chelsea and didn’t make any of the errors he has been prone to this season. Leicester fans will be hoping he stays in the summer.
Ben Chilwell - 7
Chilwell’s pace continues to impress, the ability he shows with ease to sprint past defenders and get to the byline is a great asset to his side. Unfortunately his final ball just couldn’t quite find a teammate in the box.
Wilfred Ndidi - 6
Ndidi had a shaky first half and gave possession away a couple of times through taking too long on the ball and loose passes. He improved in the second half until he made way for Okazaki.
Hamza Choudhury - 7
Leicester’s latest youngster to break through into the side put on another great display against Chelsea. Choudhury’s determination and intensity to win back possession is great to watch.
Youri Tielemans - 6
Tielemans had one of his least effective games since joining Leicester on loan in January. He had a couple of good openings on the edge of the box he should have done better with. Despite this, Leicester fans will be desperate for the young Belgian to sign permanently in the summer.
Marc Albrighton - 6
Albrighton didn’t have the best time on the ball this afternoon, although the effort was still there.
Jamie Vardy - 5
Vardy had a mostly quiet afternoon, although had a couple of good chances he would have been expected to do better with. One great opening to set-up Tielemans for a one-on-one was squandered with a poor pass.
James Maddison - 6
Maddison didn’t get too many chances to do something in the final third but played a few good passes around and set-up some nice moves.
Shinji Okazaki - 6
Okazaki’s final appearance for Leicester was a typical hard working performance. A fan favorite in his time at the King Power, who’s energy and spirit will be missed.
Danny Simpson - N/a
Simpson was the other player to bid farewell to the home fans as he played the final few minutes. An ever-present part in Leicester title winning defense, his name will forever be in the history books.
Harvey Barnes - N/a
Barnes came on for the final couple of minutes.
