Leicester fans react to Demarai Gray’s performance against Brentford

Leicester progressed to the fifth round of the FA Cup on Saturday by overcoming Brentford 1-0, but the nine changes they made led to a somewhat lacklustre display.

The away side took the lead within five minutes thanks in part to a wonderful pass from Dennis Praet, but aside from that they lacked a cutting edge in attack, managing just three shots on target.

That was partly due to their underperformance in possession, with forward players such as Ayoze Perez and Demarai Gray achieving 68% and 73% pass accuracy respectively.

Gray, in particular, has been the focal point of criticism from fans, many of whom believe he still hasn’t lived up to expectations since joining, and therefore some want him to leave.

The fact the 23-year-old has failed to hold down a regular starting position in the team despite joining in 2016 is evidence to suggest the fans above are correct, with even youngster Harvey Barnes being trusted by Brendan Rodgers to play ahead of him this season.

Added to that, he has made only two goal contributions in 14 league games this term, and when he is failing to make the most of a rare start against Brentford it is a worrying sign.

However, some fans have come to the winger’s defence, and claim that he would show his worth if he was given more of an opportunity to do so, adding that he is talented enough to merit a place in the Foxes’ squad.

Elsewhere, the recent performance of another youngster should offer fans more encouragement, and give them a reason to be positive despite Gray’s perceived underperformance.
