I’m surprised Castagne scores to highly, as like Praet, the game seemed to pass him by for large parts. 

Played much better second half when we started to pile pressure

Kel and Marc 8, everyone else 5 except Vardy, 2

 

Edit: realised I marked Amartey 5, was meant to mark 3!

Very kind on Evans.

 

He was so poor on both the 2nd and 3rd goal.

It was a very strange lethargic performance all round. Kelechi is on a different level at the moment and gets an 8, Albrighton had an impact so deserves a 7 but the rest were average or way below. It was one of the least effective games I have seen Ndidi play, Riccardo looked knackered bless him so was thrown in, Castagne really poor on the left but looks like a different player on the right and our persistence to play a 3 at the back should only ever happen if the main three are fit as Amartey gives us little with the ball.

Could not understand the performance, knowing how important this game was.

Partly bad luck due to having players being unavailable. But I think otherwise it is just one of those things: we were set up in 3-5-2 formation that worked in recent games for Nachos but it stifles our full backs. This game it didn’t work, but I was pleased that Rodgers changed it after HT with intro of Thomas and Albrighton (in place of Amartey and Praet), allowing Castagne to switch to the right (he is much better as a right full back) and effectively played 4-4-2 (exactly what I called for on the match thread before HT 🤣). It kind of worked although it wasn’t enough and I was somewhat disappointed that Ricardo was still no where near his best despite the change (guess he played more as a right winger although strangely he often dropped back as right full back while Castagne was almost covering as CB and Fofana went to the left to play LB as Thomas was playing way out in front). I was pleased to see the change and the effort in the second half. I wish we started this way but in fairness it was difficult for Rodgers. Still I am bitterly disappointed we lost such an important game to stay in top 4. I must say with Chelsea and Liverpool closing in, we may not even get into Europa.

3-5-2 is to compensate for the unavailability of Barnes and the lack of a right-winger.

Without wingers/wide-forwards, we are compelled to rely on the wing backs for width.

 

Second-half, we switched to a back 4 and Ricardo moved upfield to RM/RW, with Castagne and Thomas as FBs.

He was not at his best today,

In my opinion he was. 

FT has always been a forum for personal opinions.

But of course when you publicly share yours, the public you address can share theirs of yours.

 

Accordingly, in my own opinion, he was not.

And I think most people would opine there's a WIDE gulf between not being at one's best and being poor.

 

Cheers!
