Claude Puel has placed his faith in Hamza Choudhury in recent weeks and Leicester City are now reaping the rewards.
It seems Leicester have unearthed a star in Choudhury, who has been very impressive since making the step up.
After playing just two cup games earlier this season, Choudhury was thrown into the deep end when he started against Chelsea in mid-December.
Since then, he has impressed in matches against Manchester City and Everton and he now looks like he will get more opportunities.
The 21-year-old has completed 55 passes (including two key passes) in three league games, according to Who Scored.
And considering the calibre of Leicester’s opposition in those three games, Choudhury’s tally of six clearances, eight tackles and eight interceptions has been very impressive.
The England under-21 international’s rapid rise to first-team stardom could be bad news for two of his Leicester team-mates, though.
Vicente Iborra and Adrien Silva might be forced into January exits with Choudhury now a first-team regular.
Iborra, 30, has started just three matches this season and Marca reports that Villarreal could sign him this month.
Leicester are willing to let the Spaniard leave, as well as Portugal international Silva.
The 29-year-old has been a disappointment at the King Power Stadium, featuring just twice this campaign.
And with Choudhury now leapfrogging this pair in the pecking order, Puel’s message to Silva and Iborra is clear.
