Leicester City boss, Brendan Rodgers, has said Chelsea deserved their win on Saturday at King Power stadium.
Goals from Antonio Rüdiger, N’Golo Kanté and Christian Pulisic for the European champions consigned the Foxes to defeat, leaving them 12th in the Premier League ahead of Saturday’s later fixtures.
Rodgers told LCFC TV: “The best team won. We were disappointing in the first half. We made much more of a game of it in the second half. We needed the goal, to get to 2-1, but we didn’t quite make it. No complaints. They were much better than us.”
Rüdiger’s opener for the Blues was a headed effort from a corner and Rodgers says more work must be done in order to eradicate that from City’s game.
“It’s a big, big issue for us, the set pieces,” the Northern Irishman added.
“We’re conceding way too many and, obviously, we’re going behind in games and that’s giving us a big problem. We’ve looked at it and we need to work even harder on it and see where we’re at.”
Rodgers also said: “This is a brilliant group of players.
“An absolutely outstanding group of players. They’ve given this Club so much over this last few years. We’re just going through a little spell, we’re not quite at our level, we’ve not quite got the confidence, and that’s when you need that support even more.
“We know we were beaten by the better team and we just need to regroup again and look to get ready for our next games.”
