A cagey affair at the King Power stadium ended in a stalemate as Leicester drew 0-0 with Wolverhampton Wanderers in their opening game of the new season.
The home side still seemed to be in pre-season mode. Lethargic on the ball, Leicester struggled to create chances from open play.
It appeared as though the visitors had broken the deadlock when Leander Dendoncker fired the ball into the net after a Wolves corner.
However, the introduction of VAR in the Premier League had a big part to play, as after VAR reviewed the goal it was disallowed due to a handball.
Wolves barely threatened the Leicester goal again after the disallowed goal. The Foxes dominated the ball, but failed to really create any real chances.
Leicester fans had high hopes going into this season, and this performance may bring their hopes back down to earth. They will know they can play better and the game was there for the taking, if they had played to their normal standard.
Improvement will be needed when Brendan Rodgers’ side travel to Stamford Bridge next weekend.
Here is how we rated the Leicester players:
Kasper Schmeichel - 6
Schmeichel was barely called into action throughout the ninety minutes as the Foxes opened with a clean sheet.
Ricardo Pereira - 7.5
Ricardo was one of Leicester’s best performers. Showed his danger going forwards even when double-teamed by Wolves defenders.
Jonny Evans - 7
Evans was classy as ever at the back, always looked in control.
Caglar Soyuncu - 7.5
Soyuncu had a lot of pressure on him this afternoon, filling in the boots of Harry Maguire. The young centre-back handled the pressure well and was very good defensively dealing with the threat of Raul Jimenez. He passed the first test.
Ben Chilwell - 6
Chilwell didn’t have a good game. His end product let him down, whenever he got in a crossing position he would instead choose to pass it back.
Wilfred Ndidi - 8 - Man of the Match
Ndidi looked sharp, he cleaned up everything around him. It was clear that the competitive football he has played over the summer has kept him sharper than the rest of the squad.
Hamza Choudhury - 6.5
Choudhury didn’t do much wrong but at the same time didn’t do anything to change the game either.
Youri Tielemans - 6.5
Tielemans had a quiet game by his standards, he made a couple of nice passes, but couldn’t find a ball to break the Wolves defence.
James Maddison - 6
As with Tielemans, Maddison had a quiet game. He won a few fouls, but didn’t create any chances on the ball. His corner deliveries were also very poor.
Ayoze Perez - 6
Perez had an ineffective debut for the Foxes. He tried a few things and had a few nice touches, but nothing really paid off.
Jamies Vardy - 6
Vardy fed on scraps upfront, he did well with what he had to work with.
Harvey Barnes - 6.5
Barnes looked good when he came on and made a couple of good direct runs.
Marc Albrighton - 6.5
Albrighton also looked good of the bench, he worked relentlessly, however, couldn’t find the final ball.
