The cries are getting louder – Brendan Rodgers knows it’s time to face the music, namely to the tune of ‘we want Rodgers out’ from the Spion Kop. The general consensus seems to be that the Leicester City manager has just one game now to save his job, next weekend’s huge fixture away at Brentford as the Foxes head into the international break.

Leicester will head to West London being bruised by Brentford’s near neighbours yesterday, falling to a 3-1 reverse against Graham Potter’s Chelsea. It’s now four league defeats on the bounce for City, and here at Foxes of Leicester, we’ve outlined three players who let the side down in yesterday’s affair.

Yesterday’s centre-half dynamic was quite striking – with Wesley Fofana putting in a consummate and assured performance on his return to the King Power, and his replacement Wout Faes behaving erratically and ultimately, poorly. The Belgian has been putting in shaky performances ever since the World Cup break at the end of last year, and today was no exception.

Faes picked up a silly booking early on after taking the bait, hook, line and sinker from Ruben Loftus-Cheek, who was out on the touchline looking only for a foul.
