Man of the match for me today, didn't out a foot wrong and covered for other's mistakes at times. Fofana was so good we forgot how good Soyuncu is, but as he's proved with his return to the team, he's ridiculously good.

And let's be honest, he is one gorgeous human being.

Agree with the rest but he still made a couplle of errors. Lost a 50 50 early on with little cover that could have put us into trouble and also lost his man at a corner chance they should have done better with.

 

Anyway, overall he is pretty good and we are lucky to have 3 decent centre backs to rotate when Fofana is back.

Compared to other British clubs, Leicester endured a more low-key return to Europa League action last night.

Tottenham, Manchester United and Rangers all scored four goals away from home in Europe last night.

But Leicester had to be content with a 0-0 draw against Slavia Prague – which isn’t the worst result.

An away goal would have been ideal but Jamie Vardy had just 13 touches before coming off in the 63rd minute.


That meant the defence took centre stage and Çaglar Söyüncü was the standout performer.

As per WhoScored, he won eight headers on the night, four more than any other player on either side.

An exclusive sit-down with Celtic linked David Webb | Pochettino, Howe & getting back into football
He also made a staggering 14 clearances. That’s more than all the rest of Leicester’s players last night put together.

That utterly dominant display earned him the WhoScored Star Man award.


Söyüncü has had to be patient at times this season, given Wesley Fofana’s impressive introduction to English football.

Thought he was all over the place a bit at times, but I think it's hard to judge on that when it's a makeshift back line and he's trying to help out Thomas.

He also had to help out Evans who was outpaced a couple of time with balls over the top.

The man is world class, not surprised bigger clubs like Barca are looking at him.

Out of their league. Couldn't possibly afford him.

Unreal today. A period in the 2nd half where he was just everywhere and connecting with everything. Bossed it today! 

He was Kante-esque for 20 minutes. It was his best showing as part of that back 3.
