Managers Reaction

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers: “Very pleased. Obviously with Jonny Evans going out early… When you see the young team and the experience they are gaining. To keep a clean sheet against very dangerous players, I am very pleased.” he added. “That’s very important and is typified in this team. The spirit and the team are great and they are unselfish. The first goal is brilliant in terms of our pressing that leads to the penalty.”

Newcastle boss Eddie Howe: “It was a strange game because I thought we were OK for large parts. We were ok in the first half and were a threat at times. We conceded a goal with the penalty – which was debatable whether it was. The scoreline looks like a heavy defeat but I didn’t think it felt like that at all.”
