LEICESTER CITY Leicester fans react to Jamie Vardy’s performance in 1-1 away draw against Chelsea

Leicester City produced an impressive second-half performance at Stamford Bridge yesterday and was perhaps a shade unlucky to come away with the only point to show for it. Wilfred Ndidi’s equalizer canceled out Mason Mount’s goal – which came from a mistake by the Nigeria international in trying to play out from the back – to earn a 1-1 draw.

But on another day, Leicester would have taken all three points, with the impressive James Maddison missing a sitter in the second half.

Also, Jamie Vardy kept springing in behind the defensive line but the pass did not come often enough, with Maddison and Youri Tielemans the worst culprits in terms of holding onto the ball for too long.
