Adrien Silva finally made his Leicester debut four months after arriving at the club when he came on as a substitute against Huddersfield.

The Portuguese midfielder was registered 14 seconds late by the Foxes in the summer and has not been able to play in the first half of the season.

But with 2018 now upon us, Silva's move was made official on Monday morning and given permission by the Premier League to feature in the eventual 3-0 victory against the Terriers, starting on the bench.

The fans were calling for Silva to be introduced as the second half wore on, and Claude Puel obliged in the 86th minute when the new signing replaced Matty James to huge cheers from the crowd.
