Leicester manager, Brendan Rodgers, praised the efforts of his wards for rising up to the occasion after they were a goal down to beat Liverpool 3-1 on Saturday.

“It was a very good win, the players deserved it”, Rodgers told BBC Sport.

“We didn’t sink when we went a goal behind, we stayed calm and the players were brilliant in that period – a real collective team performance.

“You can see the improvement in the team’s mindset. Our reaction was superb.”

Jurgen Klopp became the ninth manager to take charge of 300 games for Liverpool in all competitions, while the German became the first Reds boss to lose his 300th match since Bill Shankly in 1965.
