Gary Neville told Sky Sports after Leicester’s 3-0 home defeat to Liverpool: “They look like a group of players who are beaten. Anything can happen. We know that they could go and do something absolutely spectacular. But I genuinely feel Leicester tonight have gone and there’s no coming back from it.

“I think most Leicester fans will think exactly the same. I don’t want to see any team going down. I’d love to be proved wrong. But I think that’s the end of them tonight.”

Jamie Carragher told Sky Sports after Leicester’s 3-0 home defeat to Liverpool: “Those other teams would have expected to be in a relegation fight. Everton would have hoped they wouldn’t but they were there last season. We’re talking about a team in Leicester who finished eighth last season and they were disappointed with that.

“Don’t forget, Brendan Rodgers was getting criticism last season for finishing eighth. To go from that to this, are the players ready for this battle? They certainly didn’t look it tonight, and they certainly didn’t look it last week at Fulham. That was a horrendous display.”
