Rodgers has ‘no complaints’ over Leicester City’s defeat

by comsmedia

Leicester City’s pursuit of a Champions League place took a hit as they suffered a shock defeat to bottom club Norwich on Friday night.

Jamal Lewis’s stunning strike settled proceedings at Carrow Road, consigning City to a loss that will see them checking over their shoulder. Their once 14-point cushion inside the top four could be reduced to six if Manchester United win on Sunday.

It could have been so different but for another VAR controversy, Kelechi Iheanacho’s brilliant second-half strike ruled out for an unintentional handball.

It proved to be a turning point in the match, raising the home crowd and instilling Norwich with the belief they needed to clinch just a second victory in 15 games.

City had chances in the first half for Iheanacho, Ayoze Perez and Dennis Praet, but the disappointment will be at the lack of opportunities created after they fell behind.

They have now failed to score in three outings, and have won just one in seven, statistics that will prompt self-reflection in Brendan Rodgers and his squad.

Brendan Rodgers said Leicester City ‘can’t dance around the truth’ amid their poor run in front of goal.

City failed to score for the third straight game in their shock defeat to bottom-side Norwich, and now have just one win in seven Premier League games.

While Rodgers felt his side created enough chances to deserve at least a share of the spoils at Carrow Road, he admitted they must rediscover their quality in the final third.

“I’m disappointed to lose the game,” he said. “I didn’t think we deserved to lose it.”
