Matty Cash (8/10): It was a busy night for Matty Cash, he was constantly under threat from Barnes. But, he did manage to put on a great show, with good defensive blocks and a great assist into the box from the far-post that allowed Buendia to score the early equalizer for Villa.

Douglas Luiz (5.5/10): Luiz did not have a noteworthy night, he did not feature much in the game and seemed to be out of touch tonight.

Marvelous Nakamba (7.5/10): Nakamba played his defensive duties very well throughout the match as he made some nice interceptions, stopping Leicester in their tracks. The Central midfielder also moved up during attacks to provide an additional man in the third.

Kasper Schmeichel (GK) (6.5/10): Schmeichel had a busy outing between the posts as he thwarted constant attacks from a hungry Villa side. He made some crucial saves for Leicester, one of which came in the first half as he stopped Ramsey a split second before the player scored a VAR ruled out Goal.

Timothy Castagne (5.5/10): Castagne looked a bit off his groove tonight as he made little to no effort to hold off the Aston Villa midfielders in the central half of the field. He will surely look to shrug off tonight’s game and focus on Leicester’s upcoming games.

Ayoze Perez (6/10): Perez did not have much of an impact in the game, as he came on in the seventy-seventh minute of the game. The player spent most of the time in the midfield trying to intercept attacks from the Aston Villa side.
