- Brendan Rodgers speaks to LCFC TV following Monday’s 2-1 loss to Fulham in the Premier League
- The Leicester City manager felt his side’s display did not hit the heights of recent weeks
- Harvey Barnes struck in reply to goals from Ademola Lookman and Ivan Cavaleiro at King Power Stadium
Goals from Ademola Lookman and Ivan Cavaleiro – the latter a penalty kick awarded by VAR – saw the visiting side race into a 2-0 lead on Filbert Way.
And while Academy graduate Harvey Barnes scored his fifth goal of the season in all competitions, City could not find a decisive leveller in Leicester.
“Naturally, we’re going to feel that, but of course, you still go into the game and look to perform as best we can.
“We rotate the team enough to make sure the team’s fresh, but tonight, we weren’t to our level.”
Barnes’ second goal in as many games gave City hope with four minutes plus stoppage time to play, and Rodgers was encouraged with the performances of the two wide players he introduced at the break.
I thought our outstanding player was Jonny Evans. He played like a man. Kasper [Schmeichel], he’s steady, he’s very focused in goal and plays like a man.Brendan Rodgers LCFC TV
“It was a great swivel,” Rodgers said of Barnes’ strike. “Him and Cengo (Cengiz Ünder) I thought came in and gave us that impetus in running with the ball, so they were very good.
“Other than that, we played very young this evening.”
