Managers Reaction 

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers: “I think tonight was not just about the result, it was about restoring pride. We saw the supporters at the end applauding the players off. They gave absolutely everything in the game. They showed some real moments of quality and we took a top team right until the end. It was much more like us. Tactically, we were good in the game and organized. We got into some good areas. My only disappointment was that we lacked that little bit of care and precision in the final third, otherwise we could have made more chances.”

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp: “With the first goal, when you are in a goalscoring moment, then you are there. That’s exactly what’s happening for Diogo at the moment. I’m really happy for him and it’s really helpful for us. We had a sense that it could happen. Diogo was not a bargain, it was not as if we got him for free.”
