Leicester City 5 Sheffield United 0 - player ratings

Sheffield United suffered their biggest defeat of the season at Leicester City.

DEMORALISED: It was a tough afternoon for (left to right) George Baldock, Ethan Ampadu and John Lundstram, with only goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale emerging with credit

Often this season they have been on the wrong end of narrow defeats but against the Foxes, they just loioked sorry for themselves, and out of their depth.

Chief football writer Stuart Rayner passes his verdict on the visiting players.

Aaron Ramsdale – made a tremendous first-half save to deny Ayoze Perez 7

Chris Basham – a brilliant header off the line, but could not cope with the pace of Jamie Vardy, who twice got in behind him to make goals 6

Ethan Amapdu – his own goal just capped it all off 5

Kean Bryan – actually did a couple of good things but usually to make up for his own mistakes 5

George Baldock – dwelling on the ball to set up the second goal summed up his team's day 5

John Lundstram – got a yellow card late on and it could have been worse 4

Oliver Norwood – did well to block a goalbound shot but otherwise another very ineffective display 5

John Fleck – gave away the ball and free-kicks far too often for a player of his quality 4

Enda Stevens – always on the back foot in the face of a very good Leicester display 5

Oli Burke – very little service, very little impact 5

Billy Sharp – again, he had little tot work with 5.


Lys Mousset (for Burke, 63) – hard to blame a substitute forward for not having an impact 5

Iliman Ndiaye (for Norwood, 79) – debut for the 21-year-old midfielder N/A.

Not used: McBurnie,, Lowe, Jagielka, Foderingham, Bogle, Osborn, Brewster,.
