Leicester City held Frank Lampard’s Chelsea to a 1-1 draw on Sunday afternoon but the Foxes would have come away feeling rather hard done by after missing a number of second-half chances that could have easily won the match.
Nobody would have been reeling quite like James Maddison, who skied an effort well over the bar from about eight yards out with the game tied entering the final 15 minutes.
The attacking midfielder was the provider of the equalising goal from Wilfred Ndidi, who himself had to atone for the earlier mistake of allowing Mason Mount to get an early seventh-minute goal on his home debut.
In defence, there was one notable absentee as regular first choice left-back Ben Chilwell was ruled out of the match with a minor hip problem – the 22-year-old played 36 of their 38 Premier League games last season.

Christian Fuchs, who won the Premier League with Leicester back in 2016, deputised and put in a solid performance that has left many fans at the King Power Stadium praising the 33-year-old.
One supporter claimed that the 6 foot 2 left-back couldn’t be dropped with another reinforcing that view by stating the Austrian is ‘a million times better than Chilwell’.
Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers revealed that the England international “should be fine for next week”, so Fuchs could be dropped for the trip to Bramall Lane to face Sheffield United on Saturday despite his performance.
Other fans called Fuchs ‘a true Leicester legend’ whilst one member of the Foxes faithful even wants him to stay forever.
