How Wout Faes, Iheanacho were rated in Leicester’s Defeat to Liverpool


Leicester’s Wout Faes and Kelechi Iheanacho were the worst players on the pitch in the game against Liverpool on Friday.

The Foxes travelled to Anfield looking for some kind of redemption after the 3-0 bashing against Newcastle United and started brightly on the night at Merseyside.

In the opening four minutes of the encounter, the visitors drew first blood, Kiernan Drewsbury-Hall found the back of the net from a Patson Daka assist.

Unfortunately, the Zambian picked a knock and could play no further part in the game as he had to be substituted in the 15th minute.

Leicester would also see their lead snuffed ouyt, when in the 38th minute, CB Wout Faes turned the ball into his own night.

His night went from bad to worse when another calamitous show saw him score another own goal on the stroke of half time.

After the resumption, Brendan Rodgers took off his captain, Wilfred Ndidi (59′) and in the 71st minute introduced Kelechi Iheanacho off the bench in his second tactical decision.

But the attacking decision yielded little as Iheanacho could only manage 11 touches on the ball, registered no shot and made no real incursions into the opponent’s final third.

He was rated 5.9 coming off the bench, only Faes scored lower of the 27 players who got minutes on the night.

Meanwhile, the back to back defeats for the Foxes means they could drop down to 15th in the standings and be just one point from the relegation zone at the end of the round of 17 matches.
