Leicester are in a difficult place at the moment, struggling for points in Premier League and a manager dealing with players he believe are overachieving. When coming forward with this type of signals you will get a problem on your hands.
Winning at home to Newcastle will be very important as Leicester are struggling in both ends of the field as we could see against Napoli with the crucial miss of James Maddison the real difference with a further life in the tournament and the route down into Conference.
Jonny Evans and Caglar Soyuncu has not really been in total controll and with Ndidi not really able to keep the midfield as tight as we would like it to be defensively.
While people are talking up the performance of Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall offensively, his defensive work is not at a level that would be good enough with players such as James Maddison and Youri Tielemans also fielded in the same team.
So what now for Brendan Rodgers as he works his way forward with his current squad of players and without a system preferred and changing players in and out of positions, in and out of the team, you suddenly also get a big dilemma in transfer dealings as you really cannot figure out what you need.
If you are baking a cake, you need to know what should be in there, if not it will be something else, and probably a disaster, and something not worth eating. At the moment there are actually no clues to look for as you don’t know what structure he is building.
The job for Brendan Rodgers is to settle a squad with fewer players in competition for places, deciding on a system and move forward, but it looks a bit messy as things are not steaded and experimental approaches are in place in front of every game.
Strange to see this happening but it looks as if it will just be silent over January with probably no players coming in, some might leave either permanent or on loan, but it looks as a very quiet window as media try to build up a story of something else.
