After Leicester City’s 2-1 defeat to Chelsea on Tuesday evening, a result which could see them drop out of the top four places depending on results around them, many Foxes supporters weren’t impressed with the display of midfielder Ayoze Perez.
Brendan Rodgers’ side enjoyed a memorable FA-Cup-winning weekend against Chelsea but could now suffer a dent in their bid to qualify for the Champions League after the west London side took revenge at Stamford Bridge.
Goals from Antonio Rudiger and Jorginho gifted Thomas Tuchel’s men a comfortable lead before substitute Kelechi Iheanacho grabbed one back 15 minutes from full time.
Alas, the Nigerian’s strike wasn’t enough as Leicester came away eventual defeat – and many Foxes fans were left unimpressed with Perez’s performance as one of the factors.
As well as this, Perez conceded possession 13 times and missed a gaping chance to level the game – blasting the ball well over Chelsea’s crossbar.
As a result, many Foxes supporters criticised the 27-year-old on social media – find their verdicts down below.
Leicester fans slam Perez vs Chelsea
“Perez you donkey”
“Perez is up there with some of the worst big money signings we’ve ever made. Just sell him in the summer.”
“Sell Perez I beg”
“Awful performance but Perez that’s unforgivable.”
“Perez is awful again”
“Perez should be nowhere near the club! Just another terrible performance from him tonight, lightweight, zero impact and capped it with that dreadful late miss. Waiting for his fans to defend him as usual”
“Not surprised by tonight’s tired performance and poor result. Most frustrating is that we had a golden opportunity to steal a point with that Perez chance — but he summed up his terrible performance with a dreadful finish.”
“Ayoze Perez must be one of the worst Leicester payers I have ever seen. Shocking.”
