A man of the match display from Kelechi Iheanacho helped Leicester romp to a 4-0 Europa League win over Braga.

The hosts started well with Iheanacho showing great determination to open the scoring in the 21st minute.

The Nigerian grabbed a second goal just after the break when his fierce shot from outside the box flew past Matheus following a wicked deflection. Iheanacho then turned creator, providing a pass to the back post which was tapped home by Dennis Praet.

Leicester then added some gloss to the scoreline through James Maddison, who finally got his goal after several close calls.

Here are your Foxes player ratings from the King Power Stadium…

1. Goalkeepers & Defenders

Kasper Schmeichel (GK) – 7/10 – Just the one save to make. Would imagine he will be rested for the remainder of Leicester’s group games now.James Justin (CB) – 8/10 –

Mopped up a string of long balls, recording a superb five interceptions in total.

Wesley Fofana (CB) – 7/10 –

Rarely if ever tested by the visitors to be honest. Looked good on the ball.

Christian Fuchs (CB) – 8/10 –

Ingenious long throw led to the game’s opener. A few sloppy moments in possession but was very solid, making three blocks in the first half alone.

Marc Albrighton (RWB) – 7/10 – Enthusiastic display as always. His thrust down the right hand side was important to the Foxes’ dominance.Youri Tielemans (CM) – 7/10 –

Will this guy ever stop running? Probably not. Keeps up his record of starting every single game this season – except that Carabao Cup abomination against Arsenal.

Hamza Choudhury (CM) – 8/10 –

Read the game brilliantly, registering four interceptions. Also treated us to a few heroic blocks and some great passes.

Luke Thomas (LWB) – 7/10 –

Continues to look more dangerous than Justin when deployed on the left. Some of his crossing was incredible.
