These were the worst Leicester City performers, choosing from all Foxes, in the absolutely disastrous defeat to Premier League strugglers Fulham.

First of all, this article isn’t designed to bash good players of decent repute or to just moan about Leicester City’s ridiculous shortcomings in the dreadful home loss to Fulham.

No. We want to identify the worst displays and single out players who should be replaced for upcoming games. By the way – the three defenders in the photograph above of Christian Fuchs, Jonny Evans and James Justin are a great place to start.

Beginning with Justin – who will inevitably soon to lose his starting place to either Timothy Castagne or Ricardo Pereira – he was actually one of the better performers of the occasion. Yes, his attacking play is rather rudimentary, but his pace and attributes give rise to optimism for the future. Nevertheless, the former-Luton Town man being so prominent in this game’s ratings does not bode well overall.

Leicester City’s worse displays

Whereas it was the two ultra experienced, usually trustworthy defenders, Fuchs and Evans, who played dodgy passes, misread opponents’ intentions and generally had matches that Foxes of Leicester would love to forget in a hurry. For example, the pair’s passing accuracy was jointly around 85 per cent. Additionally, both man’s decision-making was questionable to say the least on several occasions.

Capable and fairly consistent Belgian duo Youri Tielemans and Dennis Praet were not at their utmost. Praet is being fielded out-of-position and was, to be fair, withdrawn at half-time. Tielemans can be very sloppy and seem terribly unfit – the Cottagers clash was one of those evenings, unfortunately.

Papy Mendy wasn’t his usual dogged self, either; Wilfred Ndidi will be rivalling for that spot by the next Premier League encounter. Meanwhile, Luke Thomas had an awkward match: no tackles, no headers won, one interception, two inaccurate crosses and dispossessed twice; as per WhoScored.

Even though they combined to create a very nice goal, legendary Fox Jamie Vardy’s touch eluded him many times, whilst Harvey Barnes was not strong enough on the ball. But he was marshalled well by the Whites defence.

James Maddison’s main issue seemed to be sharpness, which is understandable following his recent injures. He did appear, however, apathetic and was generally ineffective; while showing some unsuccessful signs of his talent.
