Football Results: Leicester 0-0 Aston Villa

Jamie Vardy returned from a long injury lay-off as Leicester produced one of the goalless football results of the weekend in the Premier League. Both sides dominated at different times but the King Power was restricted to much goalmouth action in the goalless draw. Maddison had the best chance for the hosts when his free-kick curled wide while Emiliano Buendia saw a late effort curl wide.

Managers Reaction 

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers: “In the last couple of games, we played really well, but in the final third we couldn’t find the killer pass. Maybe that is a lack of energy because of the number of games we’ve played – the speed of our attacking combinations is not quite as we want it. Our heart and effort are there though. We got the clean sheet. In the last 15 minutes, we tired a bit.”

Aston Villa boss Steven Gerrard: “It’s enough to satisfy me because, after four defeats, it’s important you stop that. I think our performance today was very strong and very good and we came here to win the game and unfortunately, we couldn’t do that. But when you can’t, it’s important that you don’t lose. We’ve come up against a strong team today with very technically gifted players but over the course of the 90 minutes, we had slightly better chances. Everyone was all in, everyone was fighting for the cause. We conceded four in the last game so we needed to reset a few things. I’m sure our goalkeeper and defenders are very happy with their performances from a defensive point of view.”
