The Black Star returned to the starting eleven as the Foxes managed to collect a point against the Eagles at the King Power Stadium

Fans have clashed on whether Ghana and Leicester City defender Daniel Amartey is a proper Premier League player.

Despite helping Leicester City pick up a point against Crystal Palace, a number of fans were critical of his performance, whereas others praised him.

Amartey returned to the starting XI with Jonny Evans injured, and he was partnered at the heart of defence with Wout Faes.

As Amartey was involved, Leicester now have consecutive league clean sheets at the King Power Stadium for the first time this year. The previous occasion was back in December 2021, in victories over Newcastle (4-0) and Liverpool (1-0).

    Concern in possession

    I would prefer Amartey to never pass backward. If he always went forward, he would be a better player. He actually defended well today. Just always a worry in possession. - @Sweeney_Sean

    Give Amartey respect

    Amartey starts, clean sheet, Wilfried Zaha in his back pocket, put some respect on the man’s name. - @MILLS1989FB

    Better than Evans

    Apart from the first 10 minutes, Amartey had a good game. So much more progressive than Evans. - @Barbs241

    Incissive Amartey

    Leicester City played well. It's unfortunate they couldn't win. Amartey giving some incisive passes. Better luck next time. @Joelmensahpablo

    How?

    How is Amartey a Premier League footballer? - @ItzMikeO

    Wrong passes

    I guess it is Alexander Djiku-Mohammed Salisu starting as our centre-back in the World Cup. The number of wrong passes Amartey is making in today's Leicester game is worrying. Maybe it is due to limited playtime. Hopefully, it gets better for him. - @Callis_GH

    Gulf in quality

    The gulf between Leicester’s best players and their worst has to be the biggest in the league.

    Top players like Dewsbury-Hall, Harvey Barnes, and Maddison looking back at Danny Ward and Amartey is shocking. - @Arsenalvibess

    Suspect

    Amartey offers nothing on the ball….off the ball too. He can be suspect. - @mr_jabben

  • Caglar Soyuncu Leicester

    How poor is Soyuncu?

    [Caglar] Soyuncu must be really bad in training if he can’t get in over Amartey. - @Harrylcfc123

  • Daniel Amartey Leicester City 2021-22

    Composed and excellent Amartey

    Amartey with moments of real composure and excellent defending, but at the same time, two or three moments of fault that could’ve ended up in Palace scoring.

    That’s why he’s not Premier League standard. Faes was much better today. - @RizLCFC

  • Daniel Amartey.

    No trust in Amartey

    Honestly, [I] think we should play a back three. I just don't trust Amartey. - @khellyrich
