    Yes he was but I’d rather he “went backwards” and kept possession then cross a ball to 3 huge CBs when only Vardy is in the box because that’s ducking stupid!

    They’re all going on about selling him well I don’t know who they think we could replace him with but he won’t be as good

    Why does he insist on dragging off Perez no matter if hes performing well between 60 - 70 minutes.

    More naivety from Brendan

    Tielemans is awful jimmy.
    Hes got undoubted talent but the odd world class through ball once every 2 months isnt cutting it.

    At one point in the first half Maddison was screaming at him for the ball cus he was lifeless processing his brain to go forward.

    Think Leicester played into Villa's hands going five at the back.

    Just made the night so easy for Villa's three mopping up chipped/hopeful balls to Vardy.

    Second half the three Leicester centre halves are stood on halfway scratching their arses, sacrifice one of them and start overloading the wings, and moving them around.

    Never in a million years should Kortney Hause been as comfortable up against Vardy.

    Thought we deserved that last night. Should have gone in 2 up. We knew what was coming second half and I thought we held our nerve. Shocking goal to give away but i’ll take that . We played with bollocks last night.

    It was about as smash and grab as you can get but without winning.
    Absolutely no way you get away with playing that way that at Villa Park which means we SHOULD pick you off at ease.

    Patience is the key. I don’t think we will come at you full throttle, that would be stupid. Home advantage and hopefully Grealish gets more into the game. 50/50 who goes through .

    Think you are being very generous to yourself making it 50/50.
    We're still heavy favourites imo and according to the bookies too tbf.

    I think you find league form can go out of the window in semi finals and I think it has in this tie. We were the better team first half and you were second half. We played without a striker and had injuries. The good thing is we had mings back which was a huge plus as he could organise the defence. We also reverted to 3 4 3 which we are unbeaten with this season. A noisy Villa Park awaits and I think we will play a patient game which could frustrate you. Of course you are favourites but in our heads if we could get you back to Villa Park at least level then we have half a chance.

    I don't think you where the better team in any of it tbf.
    You defended fantasticly and Mings was an absolute rock. But a goal against the run of play and free kick off the bar doesn't make you better imo.
    That said had it finished 0-2 to you I don't think we could have complained. We just couldn't get through you.
    I think you benefitted massively from our lack of a ball winner which will be rectified in the away leg.
    Choudary made a huge difference in the second half.
    All to play for anyway.

    we will probably be at full strength, even if he is fit I wouldn't start Vardy in this, Nacho has earned it
