Brendan Rodgers had a miserable night in Ukraine when Leicester missed a chance to secure first place in their Europa League group and Caglar Soyuncu only lasted 15 minutes on his comeback.

Leicester fear center-back Soyuncu is suffering again from the groin injury that had kept him away since early October, and Zorya Luhansk rubbed salt in the wound as substitute Allahyar Sayyadmanesh scored the winning goal six minutes from time.

Along with Soyuncu, Rodgers brought back two more stars who were injured. Full-back Ricardo Pereira played 45 minutes in his first senior appearance since the cruciate ligament injury nine months ago, and midfielder Wilfred Ndidi, who has been out since September, lasted a little under an hour. . Ndidi looked the most solid of the three after recovering from an adductor injury.

A late goal knocked Leicester down and they advance to the finals but have yet to secure first place.

Leicester (4-2-3-1): Station 6. 5; Pereira 5. 5 (Thomas 45, 6), Morgan 5. 5 (Fuchs 57, 6), Soyuncu 6 (Fofana 17, 6), Justin 6; Ndidi 6. 5 (Mendy 56, 6), Choudhury 5. 5; Under 7, Praet 6 (Maddison 78), Barnes 6. 5; Your anacho 6. Unused subs: Jakupovic, Albrighton, Perez, Leshabela, Stolarczyk, Flynn, Nelson.

That result means that Leicester – who are already qualified – will have to beat AEK Athens next week at the King Power Stadium to be sure to land on Braga and improve their chances of an inexpensive draw in the last 32.

« It looks like [Soyuncu] is overwhelmed and we will have to analyze that when we get back, » said Rodgers, whose side will join Sheffield United in the Premier League on Sunday.

‘Ricardo did well in the first half but it’s only a process for him after being gone for so long.

‘We will land in the UK in the early hours of Friday morning, train in the afternoon and travel to Sheffield on Saturday.

Rodgers had spoken about the importance of his three returning players after resting Jamie Vardy, Kasper Schmeichel, Jonny Evans and Youri Tielemans.

But when Soyuncu ran to intercept a pass, he quickly stopped and held his thigh. He was immediately replaced by Wesley Fofana.

Leicester were lucky enough not to fall behind six minutes after the break when Vladlen Yurchenko’s header bounced off the crossbar with Danny Ward struck.

Fofana, who had replaced Soyuncu, then fired a free kick from Cengiz Under’s free kick.

Leicester was in the 84. Penalty when Sayyadmanesh, who had just come on, showed a low cross from close range at the far post.
