Following the match, Brendan Rodgers criticised the players again in his own charming way:

"“There’s a number of our players who don’t care enough when they have it. They’re happy to give it away, or not bothered enough to give it away.”"

He may have a point but this was pretty damning coming from the manager as the club heads into a run of Premier League fixtures against teams above them in the league. Rodgers continued his quotes down towards the path of needing more quality in the squad, but surely the amount of quality coming in the next 10 days won’t make a huge improvement given the club’s poor recent transfer history. It’s not pretty reading and is the reason many Leicester City supporters fear their time in the Premier League is coming to an end.

A manager that is unable to work with the players at his disposal is normally not the right man for the job. They are currently three points above the bottom of the table Everton and somehow sit 14th, but don’t get excited that is very likely to worsen. Aston Villa, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United and Arsenal will all be eyeing up their February fixture with the foxes as an easy victory, and it’s not hard to see why! Not holding on for a victory in this game could prove costly.

The only glimmer of hope was James Maddison’s return to the pitch where his flair and class might earn Leicester City some points they sorely need. That mid-table mediocrity is now nothing more than a dream of a season. Maybe that FA cup fixture with Walsall will provide a much-needed confidence boost.
