However, Gareth Southgate did at least stave off an unwanted record of becoming the first England boss to oversee four straight defeats and further puncture the feel-good factor of a run to the World Cup semi-finals.

In what was a thoroughly tiresome match, Rashford livened things up temporarily by scoring in the 54th minute at the King Power Stadium - the only goal of the game.

Southgate could make up to nine changes from the team that started England's Nations League campaign with a 2-1 defeat by Spain at Wembley Stadium on Saturday.

Man-of-the-match Rose was one of the few players to impress throughout and told Sky Sports there were a few home truths between team-mates at the interval.

Team mate Harry Maguire agreed it had been a bit fiery in the dressing room.

"We know the performance could have been better". And we gave the ball away too cheaply.


With Harry Kane, who'll be facing the Reds at the weekend, also rested, Eric Dier will captain England in the game.

Leicester City's Ben Chilwell and Demarai Gray have been promoted from the under 21s for Tuesday night's friendly with Switzerland and the pair have limited Premier League experience, though Southgate is truly down to the bare bones - so much so that there is no replacement for the newly-injured Dele Alli.

While England goalkeeper Jack Butland made some important saves, Southgate's side too often looked vulnerable in defence in the opening half.

England struggled to get Loftus-Cheek on the ball in unsafe positions in the first half and when they did, he was unable to do much with it, often showing an inability to turn when presented with the ball with his back to goal.

"We also had a tactical issue dealing with Xherdan Shaqiri and Granit Xhaka going so deep, which meant even more running for lads getting their first game of the season". "We expect and encourage it because they're intelligent footballers and it's important they have a view of what's going on".
