How Albion players rated as individuals in what was a sumptuous team performance – bar a couple of defensive malfunctions which made life more interesting.
Left exposed twice in the first half but stood up to parry from Barnes at 2-2. Not much action in the second 45.
Joel Veltman 7/10
A few early alarms at the back but Albion eventually restored order. His ball-winning was at the origin of the third Albion goal.
Lewis Dunk 7/10
Caught out by Tielemans’ pass on the second Leicester goal and defence did not look watertight in the first half. But the afternoon became a lot more straightforward after the break.
Adam Webster 7/10
Pass was picked off for the Leicester equaliser but, again, defence became more assured in the second half.
Solly March 8/10
Thought he scored but he did enough with his header to get Albion back on terms as he continues to get into some great positions. Dare one say he was excellent and lively but needed the finishing touch?
Alexis Mac Allister 9/10
Got through an afternoon of combative midfield work despite being on a yellow from the 12th minute. Denied a wonder goal by VAR but then played a big part in the Trossard goal and his finishing was sensational – not least a clever penalty.
Moises Caicedo 9/10
All action in midfield, covering huge areas even right at the death, and steadied himself to dispatch a perfect finish and make it 2-1.
Leandro Trossard 9/10
Back in the wing-back berth. Created danger in the first half and was so composed with his finish which restored the lead. His magic to force a penalty was also a highlight.
Enock Mwepu 8/10
Perhaps a surprise starter but was strong, direct and calculating in his part for the second Albion goal. Should really have set up an open goal for Welbeck in the second half. He has some intriguing qualities and his season might just start here.
Pascal Gross 8/10
So much clever work again with the ball and with his movement and was only denied another goal by Ward’s save. Have Albion fans actually come up with a song for him?
Danny Welbeck 7/10
Chipped a chance on to the roof of the net, which was created by his own hard work. Looks full of ideas and energy.
SUBS Deniz Undav, Pervis Estupinan, Billy Gilmour, Tariq Lamptey were all sent on with the game well and truly won.
