Leicester City fell to Zorya Luhansk in the Europa League after another dismal performance, which has left them still looking to qualify top of the group.

Leicester City travelled to Ukraine looking to bounce back after no win in three matches, and were given some amazing news and Caglar Soyuncu, Ricardo Pereira and Wilfred Ndidi made their return to the side.

But Soyuncu got injured after 10 minutes, which set the tone for the night really.

A sluggish performance was sealed when Allahyar Sayyadmanesh slotted in with five minutes to go to give the Ukrainian side a famous victory.

So who was awful, and was the brightest spark in the player ratings.

Danny Ward- 6

The number two goalkeeper made a rare appearance and he didn’t look rusty at all. After two fine saves in the first half he didn’t have a lot to do until he picked the ball out of net for the goal. Nice to know there is a suitable number two.

Ricardo Pereira- 5

Isn’t it great to see Ricardo on a football pitch, albeit for a very steady 45 minutes. Understandably the Portuguese international was very tentative in challenges and wasn’t bombing forward due to it being his first game since his ACL injury in March but it was more about fitness than performance tonight.

Wes Morgan- 5

The Leicester legend received another European cap tonight in a standard Wes Morgan performance. Challenges for every ball and last-ditch blocks were all to see tonight, before he made way shortly before the hour. Still an important player this season.

Caglar Soyuncu-5

After two months out with a groin injury, the big Turk made his long-awaited return only for him get injured again with only 10 minutes on the clock. It was a sight that every Leicester fan feared, lets hope it’s not that serious.

James Justin- 6

A decent performance from the full back. He was one of brightest sparks in the first half on the left hand side, and was assured on the right in the second half. He should have scored at the end, but his finishing let him down. The England Under 21 international doesn’t have long to try and establish his place in the side with Ricardo and Castagne coming back from injury. He’ll need more than his ‘OK’ performance today.
