Oh Oh. De ja Vu again for Leicester. Last season’s late implosion to finish fifth seems to be repeating itself again. Newcastle put the Foxes to the sword on Friday night with arguably their most clinical performance of the season. Lethargic and incompetent defending at fault for the loss. Just watch the third goal by Callum Wilson for the Magpies.
What on earth was Castagna trying to do here, back pass to Schmeichel with his heel while on the floor? Jonny Evans was missed at the heart of the defense for Leicester. As an attacking force the home side were okay but not great. Despite having the chunk of possession and 25 shots at goal with an accuracy of 36%. They finally woke up in the last 10 minutes to score twice to put some respectability back to the scoreline, the pick of the bunch is the Albrighton belter.
Leicester are looking over their shoulders and seeing Chelsea popping up on the rear view. The Foxes, third on the log are two points ahead of the Blues in fourth and have played a game more. To compound the misery, Spurs, West Ham and Liverpool are in the mix.
