Riyad Mahrez's classy volley inspired Leicester to a comfortable victory over the Terriers.
The biggest cheer of the afternoon was reserved for Adrien Silva as he made his delayed debut as an 86th-minute substitute in a match marred by captain Wes Morgan limping off injured before the half-hour mark.
“In the first half we played a team with a strong defensive unit who had quality on the pitch," reflected Foxes boss Claude Puel. “They tried to play behind our defenders, it was tough to play against them. We started well with quality on the pitch. perhaps the last 15 minutes we struggled to find the solutions but in the second half we had the same positive attitude and we showed our quality.
“We scored through Riyad [Mahrez] and after that we had more space and we scored more. We put in a good performance today. It was a fantastic game for Riyad. It was fresh legs today with quality and more intensity, with and without the ball.
“He showed his quality. I like all the play of the team with quality. To play just two days after our game at Liverpool, with this quality and intensity was good. It was important against this team because they try to play good football. It is a good win today."
