I think you will find—when watching each of Leicester’s goals back—that Rodri could have impacted the series of actions in a different way as to prevent most of those situations.

As could have prime Dinho.

Lazy analysis. Rodri wouldn't get near the ball with the speed they were breaking at. He's been brilliant this season, but that doesn't change his turtle like speed

Not having Walker defending there and his recovery pace, coupled with Bernardo playing higher up the pitch and not helping in the middle as much, has a far greater effect on our defending

Hmmm not sure about that one. Rodri has been doing that all season long, even with his "turtle like speed". Maybe he wouldn't have stopped every single one but would definitely have stopped more than Ferna and Gündo managed to today.

This is true. Bernardo playing higher and no Walker severely deplete us defensively.
