There is no confidence within that team that they can see out a game which is still in touching distance of the opponent – something not experienced on Monday with Leicester going up 3-0 before half time. Again reflected in the stats that this is a continuous problem for the side, as that is now 30 points dropped from winning positions in the year of 2022, which is of course more than any other side in the Premier League. Whatever Rodgers is doing is not working and respectively, his time at the club must surely now be up.

Leicester City look much improved from set-pieces

Although it is early days to Lars Knudsen’s tenure at the East Midlands club the side already looks mightily improved especially defending set-pieces. They look more organised and it is very clear what everyone’s role is when defending them as well as you can feel that the whole sides confidence levels has risen exponentially in the process. Of course this is a small sample size but the signs of improvement are there – even if the opposition faced in that time are two teams pipped for relegation. Unfortunately for Leicester’s case, there are now much more pressing defensive worries to deal with than just defending set-pieces.
