Not quite as routine as last Friday night was it?
Despite taking a 2-0 lead inside 20 minutes against Burton Albion, Leicester City were made to huff and puff against the Brewers, only sealing victory in the last minute when a goal from James Maddison wrapped up proceedings.
However it was the man who set up Maddison for his ‘icing on the cake’ goal that seemed to be getting quite a lot of stick from the Foxes faithful, and that was Demarai Gray.
The statistics from last night would certainly back up the fans on this one, as he had a worse pass completion percentage than all bar one of the Leicester centre-backs.
As well as that, he only managed two successful dribbles compared to Marc Albrighton on the opposing flank who managed to achieve eight (all via WhoScored).

And they were not scared in voicing their opinions about the 23-year-old, with some rather harsh comments indeed.
Said that last time he started. And the time before.
Then he comes on as a sub a month later and everyone thinks he’s amazing again

Gray has just been put off by an open goal! Not a striker! #LCFC

Demarai Gray literally can’t score in an open net

Demarai Gray – 117 premier league games, 6 assists.
Harvey Barnes – 28 premier league games, 6 assists.

How much longer before we see the the potential from Demarai Gray, only been waiting four years.

I hate to say anything negative when we’re 2-0 up and cruising, but Demarai Gray really is awful isn’t he

Demarai Gray is surely finished here?

In fairness, he has only started one league game this season, so that should be a decent indicator that he isn’t good enough to be in the first team, that’s why he was playing against Burton last night.
