Leicester City 0-0 Sunderland: Player Ratings

Stalemate at the King Power Stadium, here’s how the lads played

Laurence Griffiths/Getty Images

Costel Pantilimon – 7

Did everything right, no dramas and commanded his box well. He had another defensive howler to deal with again which he did superbly.

Santiago Vergini – 6

Santi looked a bit suspect in defence as he never seems to look confident playing against a real fast winger and Schlupp got in behind him in the first half which we were lucky to get away with. He got forward more today though, so he was solid overall

Anthony Reveillere- 7

Anthony had a decent game, he did everything right and he looks like a really tidy replacement at full back.

John O’Shea – 7

O’Shea marshalled the defence well again this week as Leicester didn’t have as many clear cut chances as they would’ve liked.

Wes Brown – 5

Wes had another calamitous error in the first half which nearly cost a goal and these mistakes are now beginning to be a regular occurrence which is worrying, apart from that he looked ok.

Lee Cattermole – 7

Lee was industrious as ever, putting himself about and dominating the midfield away from home. Lee spread the ball around and kept possession ticking over, overall good performance.

Jordi Gomez – 6

Jordi looked slow on the ball and lacked a bit of cutting edge going forward. He had an opportunity midway through the second half which he scuffed when he should’ve at least hit the target

Seb Larrson – 6

Seb’s set piece deliveries were not up to scratch today and when you play away from home they are important. Overall just a normal game from Seb, nothing too special.

Adam Johnson – 6

Adam didn’t do a lot with the ball, he never really took anyone on and a few crosses were blocked. He had one long range effort which Schmeichel saved well but apart from that it was a bit pedestrian.

Connor Wickham -7

Connor looked fresher today and seemed like he wanted to put a shift in which he did. He did a lot of running and had a couple of efforts which were saved.

Steven Fletcher – 7

Fletcher looked good again today, his hold up play was good and you can see his confidence is high, but unfortunately he couldn’t find a way past Schmeichel.

Liam Bridcutt – 6

Liam came on for Larsson and he did the same job as Seb, nothing special but kept possession well.

Will Buckley – 6

Will wasn’t really given a lot of time to make a real impact

Man Of The Match: Steven Fletcher

Hard to really pick a man of the match for a 0-0 but after his knock against the Republic of Ireland Steven came back fresh and looked good up front. He should’ve scored in the first half after being one–on-one but at least a striker wearing red and white was actually in that position.
