Brendan Rodgers happy with Kelechi Iheanacho, others despite losing to Arsenal

News Brendan Rodgers happy with Kelechi Iheanacho, others despite losing to Arsenal

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers says there will be more pressure on Manchester United in Sunday’s crunch clash at the King Power Stadium as they “need” rather than want to be in the Champions League.

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers says he’s impressed with the effort of Kelechi Iheanacho and other players who featured against Arsenal on Wednesday.

Rodgers handed Iheanacho and other fringe players the opportunity to impress in Wednesday’s league cup clash against the Gunners at King Power Stadium, but the visitors proved to be too much for them.

Leicester dominated the game in the first half, and Iheanacho had the best chance to put the Foxes ahead, but his effort was saved by Bernd Leno.

Leicester City’s confidence was dealt a big blow in the second half when Christian Fuchs scored an own goal to put the visitors ahead.

Leicester City continued to search for an equalizer, but it was Eddie Nketiah who scored the second for the Gunners.

Rodgers said he’s proud of Iheanacho and other players’ efforts throughout the match.

“If you are going to lose a game that is how I would want to lose a game. There was lots of energy, lots of quality, and even though players were lacking minutes, there was cohesion. There were many positives. The disappointment is that they were two scruffy goals that we lost to.” He said.
