Brendan Rodgers has stated that it was all about restoring pride to the team after they suffer another defeat to Liverpool.

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers has stated that it was not about the result but all about restoring pride.

Leicester suffers another defeat to title contender Liverpool in the Premier League after Jota two goal sealed the victory for the Reds at Anfield.

For the Foxes, there was a clear reaction to their FA Cup exit at the hands of Midlands rivals Nottingham Forest. They were improved from the weekend defeat, even though the result did not go in their favour.

Manager Brendan Rodgers told BT Sport: “Tonight was not just about the result but about restoring pride. You saw the supporters clapping the players off. They gave everything and had moments of quality.

“We kept a really tough team in it until the very end. We just lacked that bit of care in the final third of the pitch otherwise we could have made more chances.

“You have to be tight and organised and when you have the ball, have the courage to play and I thought the boys did that. I think our two centre-halves did great. Wilfred Ndidi got caught in the pack for the first goal and Virgil van Dijk had a free header. It’s been an ongoing problem for us. It’s definitely an area we have to improve on.

“You have to grind it through. The players are much happier with that performance and the spirit. It’s a challenge after a challenge. When you get that consistency with centre-backs it gives you balance and unfortunately that’s been difficult for us. We will keep pushing and take that spirit into the next weekend.”
