The foxes fell to Manchester United 1-0 at the King Power in one of the worst performances in recent memory. Lets get to the match ratings from yours truly.

Danny Ward: Another game where he didn’t have much to do, until he did, and he couldn’t rise to the occasion. Probably isn’t a good idea to smack the ball forward when we are completely disorganized either. 4.5

James Justin: Along with the rest of the defense, was actually really solid this match. However, going forward he was abysmal. He also made the worst choice possible in shooting when he could have passed the ball back to Daka. 5.

Wilfried Ndidi: Was chosen over Soyuncu and was actually really good. He was dominant in the air and his passing was fine until the last 15 minutes or so, when he started spraying passes in awkward directions. 6.

Jonny Evans: The one player who gave what he needed to give in order to win. Dominant in the air, flying into tackles, and seemed to I don’t know... care? His best game of the season. 8.

Luke Thomas: Seemed to be positioned in awkward places both defensively as well as attacking. He was game for the physical battles but the technical side of his game just isn’t there yet. 5.

Boubakary Soumare: Just so strong on the ball. When he has it no one else is getting it. He won many of his tackles as well. He just has those moments where he kind of disappears though doesn’t he? 6

Youri Tielemans: Seemed to be the only one that was looking forward. Without his line-splitting passes to Maddison, the foxes likely would have been in their half the whole game. 6

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall: Worked hard as usual but really lacked quality except for one or two occasions. 6

James Maddison: Had a difficult time finding pockets and when he did the passing wasn’t there from him. Outside of his free-kick that forced De Gea into a save he was not dangerous. 5

Harvey Barnes: Looked to be the most dangerous man on the pitch, but like the rest of the squad, lacked final product. 5

Jamie Vardy: Was more invisible than Madders. Almost never put Varane or Martinez in uncomfortable situations, nor did he really touch the ball. 4


Kelechi Iheanacho: Kept dropping deeper and deeper to get on the ball, thus not being dangerous in attack. 4.

Patson Daka: Actually made an impact, setting up Justin for the best chance of the game. Which may lead to a few more minutes. 6.

Brendan Rodgers: I love all that he’s done for the club, but it is clearly time for him to leave. It’s sad, really that it came to this. Such a productive time under him but the players clearly don’t believe in him and his signings are the reason this transfer window was such a disaster. 4.

Honorable Mention: Depression

Leicester are bottom after 5 matches with one point. Depression.
