Rodgers: We didn't deserve loss at Manchester United

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers feels his club did not deserve to lose at Manchester United last weekend. 

Leicester suffered their first-ever defeat of the season in the hands of United last week at Old Trafford. Marcus Rashford scored the only penalty which separated the two sides. And despite the loss, Rodgers has revealed he has been pleased by their performance in the five opening matches. 

"I don’t think we deserved to lose the game (against Man Utd)", said Rodgers

"There wasn’t much in it. Over the first five games, we’ve shown a wonderful resilience, we’ve been very strong in the second period of games. We must continue to work on our performances."

On Maddison future 

James Maddison has been linked with a move to Manchester United over the past few weeks and Rodgers shared his thoughts. 

"In a player’s career, they’ll always be that temptation," said Brendan Rodgers. 

"But this is a club that doesn’t want to sell their best players. Of course, if there’s a valuation met which the club perceives the player to be worth then there’ll be a discussion."

The Foxes will try to bounce back when they host Tottenham on Saturday 21st in an early kick-off match.
