Leicester City lost 2-1 against Everton at the King Power Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday despite scoring the opening goal.

The scores were left until 77 mins when Gylfi Sigurdsson scored a stunning goal against a Foxes side who had been reduced to 10 men.

Wes Morgan was picked up for a second yellow card after a shove on Richarlison.

The decision may have been harsh but it was Morgan’s second sending off in three weeks.

Foxes boss would have been able to call on £19m summer signing Caglar Soyuncu but he did not even include him in the matchday squad.

Soyuncu has yet to make his debut for Leicester but with Morgan suspended again he may just get a chance in the next Premier League game against Arsenal.

Despite not featuring for the 2015-16 Premier League champions the defender is match fit and was called up to the Turkey national side where he is likely to start against Bosnia and Russia.

The 22-year-old also started against Russia and Sweden over the last international break.

Leicester boss Claude Puel has said that Soyuncu needs to learn English before he plays.

“For the moment, he has some problems communicating with his team-mates because he does not speak a lot with all the good words and sentences,” Puel said. “He needs to make progress.

“Also he is a young player. That is the first thing. The second thing is that I think it was a good opportunity to give more game-time to Jonny and with Wes to work together and play together.”

The players agent Mustafa Dogru has however, revealed to Turkish-Football that he does now have a basic grasp of the language.
