- Brendan Rodgers reflects on Leicester City's 2-1 loss to Southampton on Saturday
- It was just City's second home defeat of the 2019/20 campaign
- Rodgers believes the Foxes made too many mistakes which cost them in the game
- However, the Northern Irishman was pleased to see Dennis Praet score his first Leicester goal
However, during his post-match assessment with LCFC TV, Rodgers admitted that the Saints created several opportunities on Filbert Way and were deserving of the three points.
"The performance probably didn’t merit anything from the game," the Northern Irishman said. "The players kept going right to the end and kept fighting.
They played through our midfield too easily and then they get in and get the goal, so a disappointing result for us.Brendan Rodgers LCFC TV
"We haven't seen too many of those here this season. The game was very broken, there was no real fluency in the game, lots of first or second balls, but ultimately, we didn’t defend well enough.
"We didn’t press the game strong enough, or well enough, and then when we had the ball, we made too many mistakes when we had the ball.
"So, it looked like up until the end, it was going to be a draw, which we would have taken because we didn’t play well.
"However, they played through our midfield too easily and then they get in and get the goal, so a disappointing result for us."
"Yes, it was good, it was quick-thinking by Ayo (Pérez), he sends Jamie away, and probably one of the few times that we were able to play forward with any quality," he added.
"He shows great desire to get up there and score, Dennis. So, that gave us the lead in the game, but we weren’t really ever in control of the game and that was a disappointment."
