Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers reveals why his team lost to Chelsea

Leicester head coach Brendan Rodgers looked like a broken man after Chelsea thrashed his team at King Power Stadium by 3-0.

The Blues shot to the lead through Antonio Rudiger’s header, and Foxes old boy N’Golo Kante doubled the visitors lead with a sumptuous solo goal.

Christian Pulisic sealed Chelsea’s victory with assist from Hakim Ziyech in the second half when Leicester were trying to come into the game.

Rodgers highlighted where his side went wrong and that he is determined to solve the Foxes’ issues ahead of their upcoming fixtures.

Brendan Rodgers told BT after the match: “We obviously conceded a disappointing goal from a corner so that gives them confidence and you can see why they are the European champions, they are a top team in every aspect of the game that you would want.

“We lacked that little belief at the beginning of the game and of course then you go 2-0 down so we had to resurrect that at half-time.

“In fairness to the players, their attitude, their spirit, everything was much better in the second half.

“Confidence has not been where it’s been in the last couple of years but that’s my job.

“But there’s no doubt that we need to defend better and attack better as a team and that responsibility is down to me to find a solution to it.”
