Many Leicester City fans have been showing their respect for summer signing Dennis Praet after a ball he made in his side’s 2-0 win at Crystal Palace.
Coming on in the 91st minute, the Belgian midfielder took a quick free-kick with his first touch which went about 40 yards and sailed over Palace right-back Joel Ward perfectly to the feet of Ben Chilwell, who so nearly made the pass an assist as his shot cannoned back off the post.
Will Leicester's top talents be stripped away this summer?
It was a comfortable win in the end for Leicester and manager Brendan Rodgers; second-half goals from Caglar Soyuncu and Jamie Vardy made sure of another three points as the Foxes continue to impress, amounting 23 points in just 11 games. They are level on points with Chelsea but have a better goal difference. They are also only two points behind Manchester City.
Many fans loved seeing Dennis Praet’s pass – which you can see via Leicester’s Twitter – as you can see in the responses below…
Exquisite. Reminds me of Mahrez in his pomp.

Great player. Our midfield options are ridiculous.

That was his first touch after coming on. Not a bad start

Because even though he's great he's still not quite as good as Youri or Madders 😁
