Managers Reaction

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers: “I thought we deserved something from the game. You have to stay in the game against a team of that quality but I thought we were excellent and created a lot of chances.” he added. “We were unfortunate with their goal but apart from that I was proud of the team. Our players coped well. With a better final ball and a bit more luck, we might have got that goal.”

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola: “We played really well from the first minute. After the international break, you always have doubts. We were at a high level again for three weeks in a row. We had many chances and could have scored more goals. This is a step we still need to take.” he added. “What can I say? The keeper is the best player on the Leicester team because we did many, many good things. You have to be patient. They are so dangerous when they attack outside so it’s difficult to control them but we did well.”
