Leicester City manager Nigel Pearson rues inconsistency following FA Cup exit

After Leicester City were undone in the second-half of their clash against Aston Villa, manager Nigel Pearson was critical of his side’s inconsistent performances week after week, reports BBC Sport.

Leicester City edged the first half of their FA Cup fifth round game against Aston Villa, but fell apart somewhat after the break, and gave themselves too much to do after going 2-0 down.

The Foxes have been in poor form in the league of late too, so confidence in low in the Leicester came. But manager Nigel Pearson is frustrated with how the sides performances keep on changing, citing the few changes he made from the starting eleven from their last game, but resulted in a worse performance.

Pearson said his men didn’t do enough for large portions of the game, and also hinted that he would consider dropping players if they cannot perform when called upon. Leicester now turn their attentions to the Premier League, and the 20th-placed side have a big task on their hands to fend off relegation.

With four straight defeats, the Foxes are in danger of the drop, so being out of the Fa Cup will mean one less distraction.
