The Chelsea midfielder, who is now on loan at Burnley, had not stepped foot on a Premier League pitch since a 1-0 defeat to Manchester City during the 2017/18 season.

He left the King Power stadium in the summer of 2017 in a deal worth £35m, which now looks an absolute steal for the Foxes considering how disastrous his time at Stamford Bridge has been.

The 29 year-old was of course a popular figure at Leicester, joining the club back in 2012 and playing a crucial part in the Premier League winning season.

Drinkwater started 35 out of the 38 matches in that campaign, scoring twice and setting up seven goals, but he has scored just twice since that season.

Plenty of fans have been weighing in on his decline after he played 59 minutes in Burnley’s 4-1 defeat to Manchester City, and while a couple are seemingly still not happy about his exit, most appear happy to see him back on the pitch.
