These problems aren’t catastrophic

Amidst this negativity it does still need to be remembered how successful this season has been so far. Leicester are still within touching distance of the summit of the Premier League all whilst Brendan Rodgers is constantly having to patch together a team with injuries and suspensions all over it.

A trip to Prague in February in the Europa League is secure and Leicester are still a side that is an attractive prospect. Only three days prior to this loss and Leicester were purring against Brighton. It is also far harder for foxes fans to be even handed when they haven’t experienced a Premier League draw for 18 matches with the transition between great and poor performances seeming to change almost day to day with the amount of games they have already played this season (20 in case you’re keeping count).

After nearly two years in charge of the club and Brendan Rodgers is maintaining Leicester City as an attractive team in and around the Champions League places. we just have to accept that these types of performances are going to happen whilst this young team navigates itself through a challenging fixture list with little rest. It won’t be boring under Rodgers and those who are annoyed with an Everton home defeat may want to remember how turgid the footballing existence was under the last manager.
