Harry Souttar came up against Erling Haaland as Leicester City’s relegation concerns worsened with a 3-1 loss to Manchester City in the English Premier League on Saturday.
Souttar earned a 5/10 rating from Leicestershire Live who wrote: “One on one with players running at him, he does struggle, comically falling over for one attempt at defending against Grealish.
“He let Haaland run off him too easily for the third too. But he won a few booming headers, and his effort from the corner helped set up the goal.”
Riley McGree missed promotion hopefuls Middlesbrough’s 5-1 home win over Norwich City in the English Championship on Friday amid ankle injury fears.

Luongo, who started and played 78 minutes, earned an 8/10 rating from East Anglian Daily Times who wrote: “Town look so strong in the centre of the pitch and Luongo is such a big part of that. He’s strong, showed drive again today and also played a clever ball into danger for goal three. Another very good display.”
Burgess was rated 9/10: “The big defender was as solid as you like during this game, coasting through it at times such was his level of confidence. Used the ball very well with feet and also had a shot from outside the box as he moved forward and things opened up for him.”
Ash Maynard-Brewer played a full game for Charlton.
