Sheffield Wednesday suffered a humiliating 5-0 defeat at home to Blackburn Rovers on Saturday and Kieran Lee was one of many players criticised for his performance.

The 31-year-old didn’t see a lot of the ball, spent a lot of the game chasing shadows and wasn’t creative when in possession either. Lee was substituted at half-time by Garry Monk and replaced by Sam Hutchinson.

Against Blackburn, Lee made 23 touches, completed 73.3% of his 15 passes, made one tackle and one clearance. The midfielder failed to create a chance, whip in a cross, make an interception, have a shot or completed a dribble. He was also dispossessed once and lost the ball twice due to bad control.

Lee has made 18 appearances in all competitions this season, making three assists, but he’s not been a regular under Garry Monk. The 31-year-old has featured only twice since Wednesday’s 1-1 draw with Birmingham City (November 27, 2019) and was an unused substitute until the New Year.

Monk had preferred Massimo Luongo and Barry Bannan in the engine room, but it remains to be seen what starting eleven he’ll pick for Wednesday’s FA Cup meeting with Queens Park Rangers (January 24).
