James Maddison suffered a health threat during Leicester’s big win in Europe on Thursday night.

Brendan Rodgers’ foxes will enter the Europa Conference League round of 16 after winning the first leg 4-1.

But Maddison was subdued in the 83rd minute of the match against Randers on the Danish side just 19 minutes after coming on.

Ace was helped from the backyard after lying down before the doctors arrived and took his pulse.

Maddison then walked down the tunnel on his own to the infirmary.

Leicester Owner Rodgers said: “He felt a little funny during the game. We didn’t want to risk that. He wasn’t feeling well so we took him off the field.”

“He went to the doctors but I just spoke to him. He sat up, felt a bit unwell during the game and fainted a bit but he is fine.”

Maddison’s substitution shone through with a morale-boosting win that ended City’s alarming decline.

Wilfred Ndidi, Harvey Barnes, Patson Daka and Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall were all targeted in the comfortable win.

With Leicester ranked 11th in Premier League – 10 points behind seventh place Wolf with 16 matches remaining – this competition was their only remaining match to win the title.

And winning the inaugural Conference League could be the best route for them to automatically qualify for the 2022-23 Europa League group stage.

Leicester started to dominate and took the lead in the 23rd minute when Ndidi finished in the second minute of the season from six yards after exchanging a pass with Ademola Lookman on the left flank following a home corner. .

Leicester nearly doubled the lead in the 25th minute when Barnes crossed to clear the ball but goalkeeper Patrik Carlgren stood firm to save.

Dewsbury-Hall was also denied by Carlgren, who hit the shot towards his goal with an outstretched toe.

The impressive Carlgren also blocked a mighty volley from Caglar Soyuncu before Daniel Amartey somehow headed the net.

Leicester had 11 attempts in the first half but Randers completely dominated the play. Tosin Kehinde sent a cross from the right after 45 minutes and Vito Hammershoj-Mistrati made a left-footed finish for the first time with his left foot softly past Kasper Schmeichel, who saved the ball.

Leicester regained their composure and played against the Danish team, who are still on winter break in the country.

Barnes took advantage of Randers’ defensive mix to turn and fire in his sixth goal of the season with a left-footed effort in the 49th minute.

Daka scored twice in eight minutes in the 10th minute of the season after Carlgren blocked Youri Tielemans’ shot and the striker converted.

There was an offside flag on the goal but there was no VAR to get past the referee.

Impressive academy graduate Dewsbury-Hall scored his first home goal for City with a right-footed finish from Lookman’s cross to seal victory in the 74th minute.

Rodgers, who have won just once in six League games, added: “I think we started well in the first half and created a lot of chances in the first and second half.

“Their goalkeeper made some great saves. But I’m very happy. Obviously it’s only the first game but to get four goals and so many assists is very encouraging. ”
