‘We have to dominate, home or away’: Brendan Rodgers faces a mentality problem at Leicester
Leicester City have been many pundits’ tip to break into the top six this season but they looked nothing like potential challengers for a European place in the first 30 minutes of yesterday’s match.
Brendan Rodgers, the manager, told them at half-time to concentrate more on the final ball and they did so, but then it was their finishing that let them down, and they needed a straightforward header from a corner by Wilfrid Ndidi to win them even a point.

But both snatched at chances to win the game. The key, Rodgers insists, is believing in themselves even against the so-called bigger clubs.
“Playing against the top six is always going to be difficult but we have got to be aggressive and dominate and you have to have that mentality home or away,” he said.
“We were exciting going forward. You can see technicians and top young players in the Chelsea team, but we have good technicians too. James Maddison was outstanding today, such a good player at getting into spaces. But he is still learning.”
