Managers Reaction

Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa: “We created double the amount of danger than them. We dominated a large part of the game. We defended well and we attacked well. And even if we deserved to win, we didn’t manage to to obtain it.” he added. “We managed a good performance against a good opponent. Football has those moments, there were two identical plays. They had one goal ruled out the same way but we couldn’t finish our chance [when Jack Harrison missed from close out].”

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers: “For us to put that effort in and show the courage to keep going, we created some great chances but failed to make the final pass and finishes. The supporters will go home proud of the team.”.
