Georgiou on 'exciting' Leicester goal-fest

Anthony Georgiou said we had much to ponder at both ends of the pitch after our Under-21s’ high-scoring victory over Leicester City on Monday.

The wide man claimed three assists as we notched up a 7-4 win at the Training Centre in the Barclays Under-21 Premier League, with five different players on our side of the scoresheet.

Naturally delighted to have emerged from such a thrilling game on the winning team, the 18-year-old was encouraged to see the goals flying in but admitted lessons need to be learned defensively after we twice allowed the Foxes back into the game having been two goals in front.

“It was an exciting game and it’s good for us to produce attacking football, scoring and creating a lot of goals, but at the same time we conceded four and that’s something we need to look at,” he said.

 


“Most of their goals came from set pieces. We didn’t pick up players and deal with them well enough and we need to hold the game better after going in front, so those are the main things that we can go back and work on.

“It’s good that we scored goals from all over the pitch, though, and it shows that we’re a very good attacking team.

“On a personal level it’s nice to get three assists and to contribute to the game by setting up goals for the team. It’s a good feeling.”
