- Brendan Rodgers praises Leicester City’s ‘outstanding team performance’ against Sheffield United
- The Foxes secured a 2-0 Premier League win and European football next season
- Ayoze Pérez and Demarai Gray were on target at King Power Stadium

City guaranteed European football next season thanks to a dominant and assured performance against the Blades on Filbert Way following strikes from Ayoze Pérez and Demarai Gray.

The success also secured the Foxes their second-highest finish in the Premier League era ahead of Sunday’s Premier League trip to Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Speaking to LCFC TV, the Northern Irishman said: "It was our first 90-minute performance since we came back. We’ve played well in other spells in games, but we had to play well over the course of 90 minutes.

“The players showed incredible quality, they battled when they had to. Sheffield United test you physically and that’s okay because when we’re at our best, we’re physically strong and aggressive.

“We showed all of that. I thought our football was very good, we played the shape really well. We scored two goals and with a better pass or finish, we could have had another two or three, so it was an outstanding team performance and a great result for us.”

Now they’ve achieved that goal, we’ve got two more games to go, and let’s see if we can go and create some more history.

Having reached their aim of a top-six berth in 2019/20, Rodgers now wants his side to go on and 'create some more history' during their final two fixtures.

"If you go back a year, when we were setting our goals for the season, our main goal was could we break into the top six," he added. "That was going to be a monumental challenge for us because of the competition, the clubs and the budgets that are ahead of us.

"But together, we’ve been able to do that, and we’ve done it as a collective. I’m so proud of the team. Now they’ve achieved that goal, we’ve got two more games to go, and let’s see if we can go and create some more history."
