Leicester suffered a disappointing Europa League exit at the hands of Slavia Prague last night.
A 2-0 defeat at the King Power Stadium sailed the Foxes’ fate.
It’s not as if Brendan Rodgers took liberties with his team selection either.
Jamie Vardy is 34 now but started the game upfront. Unfortunately, he will have no more midweek European assignments this season.
Vardy managed only 26 touches in 90 minutes in the game, which summed up Leicester’s night.
Vardy’s two shots at goal both missed the target.
Ricardo Pereira matched Vardy’s 26 touches of the ball after being put on in the 60th minute.
None of Leicester’s front players were really able to get into the game, in truth.
An inability to get the ball to the Vardy regularly enough summed up Leicester’s problems.
With creative players on the pitch like Youri Tielemans and Harvey Barnes coming off the bench, Leicester should have done a better job.
Of course Vardy is the type of player who doesn’t need to constantly be involved to get goals.
But a touch at a rate of less than every three minutes isn’t good enough in a must-win game.
Leicester need to work harder and more efficiently to give Vardy better service this weekend against Arsenal.
