Leicester City keep their third place position in the table with a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
The Foxes faced a far tougher challenge than they did in the 9-0 win at Southampton last weekend.
Palace were solid defensivly and allowed few good goal scoring chances for Leicester’s plethora of attacking threats.
But it was one of Leicester’s defensive stars who opened the scoring. Caglar Soyuncu turning in a corner delivered by James Maddison to score his first goal for the club.
Following the goal saw the Leicester back-line face a period of pressure from the Palace attack.
However, the hosts were unable to muster an effort to truely trouble Kasper Schmeichel.
It was the Premier League’s top goal scorer who put the game to bed as Jamie Vardy capped off a brilliantly built goal with a composed finish for his tenth goal of the season.
Here is how we rated the Leicester players…
Kasper Schmeichel - 7.5
Another clean sheet for Schmeichel and another where he wasn’t called into action too often.
Ricardo Pereira - 7
Ricardo defended well but didn’t quite get going moving forwards.
Jonny Evans - 8
Evans was a rock at the back once again and threw himself in front of everything that came his way.
Caglar Soyuncu - 8.5
Soyuncu also put in another excellent defensive performance and headed the ball smartly to open the scoring.
Ben Chilwell - 7
As with Ricardo, Chilwell didn’t seem to get into top gear on attack, however, he did do a good job at the back.
Wilfred Ndidi - 7.5
Ndidi was once again fantastic defensivly in midfield, winning the ball back constantly. Although on the ball he had a poor game, giving possession away with misplaced short passes fairly often.
Youri Tielemans - 8
Tielemans did an excellent job in balancing attack and defence. He won the ball back when he needed to and played some great passes in the Palace half.
James Maddison - 8.5
Maddison put in quality deliveries throughout, getting the assist for Soyuncu’s opener. He was a constant threat on the ball creating chances for his teammates.
Ayoze Perez - 7
Perez had a good game but couldn’t quite find the finishing touch or pass. He won the ball back for his side in dangerous areas and made some threatening runs.
Harvey Barnes - 6.5
Barnes struggled to truely get involved for the majority of the game.
Jamie Vardy - 8
Vardy had come close on a couple of occasions and finally found the back of the net with a composed finish.
Subs: Demarai Gray - 7.5
Gray made a good impact of the bench and did brilliantly in the build-up to Vardy’s goal.
Wes Morgan - N/a
Was a late substitute.
Dennis Praet - N/a
Was a late substitute.
