Perhaps most pleasing for Rodgers and his management team, however, was their side's dedication to a high-press stratagem in temperatures exceeding 28 degrees.

Mendy, 27, starred for 45 minutes and was pleased to see the latest phase of Leicester's pre-season development go to plan in their third friendly fixture of the summer.

It was very difficult as well because the weather is a little bit too hot but we tried to play and to have success to find the goal.

"It was very good for us because we had a clean sheet today and we scored three goals," the Frenchman told LCFC TV at full-time.

"It’s a success to score three goals but for the team, we played well with the ball. It was a good exercise today.

"It was very difficult as well because the weather is a little bit too hot but we tried to play and to have success to find the goal."

Mendy also congratulated his team-mates who featured in the second half as the Foxes turned the screw and became too much for their hosts.

"We didn’t have that success [in the first half] but in the second half we played better and we found a way to score goals," he added.

"In a good way, step by step we are getting fitter. I think the next game will be better for the fitness but we have a little bit more of a connection together and that’s fine for the future. 

"It’s nice to see the [England Under-21s] lads return because they are good lads and good footballers. We’ll need all the players to make a good season this season."
