3. Not a shoulder to rely on

Today was Leicester City’s fifth consecutive loss, where the side conceded ten goals and scored only two! That sheds some light that neither of the available options upfront is a reliable source for the boss.

Kelechi Iheanacho always has an unreliable demeanour, while Patson Daka is erroneously inconsistent. Jamie Vardy is past that age where he can do something to bail us out. Without them, the wingers are in dire demand, which they struggle to provide for! Neither Harvey Barnes nor Tetê is a sufficient threat. The side is slowly turning mum offensively. It is a growing concern for the challenging end-of-the-season must-win games.

The Foxes would need to secure 1.33 points on average per game to have any hopes of surviving this season. Even if they do, the ridiculous contract situation will leave them more depleted.

By the summer, several players whose contract situation is up in the air will be leaving for nothing. The side would need to fill up those vacancies with no additional money coming in. They have to sell an asset off, like James Maddison, deteriorating the quality further.
