Good Bad Ugly & Stupid

GOOD: Craig Shakespeare
Since taking over from Claudio Ranieri, the former assistant hasn't put a foot wrong. Played four, won four is a script not even his famous namesake could have written with Leicester in turmoil and heading for the drop. But by sticking with last season's formula — same players, same style — he has them in the last eight of the Champions League and climbing to safety.
This is more than the annual fade — more like a collapse with the Euro qualification record in jeopardy and Arsene Wenger considering his position. No fight, no defence, no attack. Looks like the end of an era.
UGLY: Jamie Vardy
For a latecomer to top flight football, the Leicester striker knows all the tricks. "Streetwise" is how he's politely described but the way he wound up Nasri and got him sent off against Seville belonged to the gutter — and the Frenchman fell for it — hook, line and sinker.
STUPID: Samir Nasri
Vardy can be a nasty piece of work but to lose the plot and headbutt him when you're already on a yellow card and your team is fighting back was unforgivable. His sending off cost Seville the tie.
