Brendan Rodgers takes responsibility for Ndidi's mistake

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has taken full responsibility of an error made by Wilfred Ndidi the led to Chelsea's goal on Sunday.

Ndidi's 7th minute error gifted Mason Mount a clear finish to put Chelsea ahead, however the Nigeria international redeemed himself by scoring an equaliser in the second half to end the game at 1-1.

After the game, Rodgers absolved the Nigerian of any blame, and claimed the fault was all his.

“It is my fault, the mistake [that led to Chelsea’s goal], because I ask my players to build in the game. But it was a brilliant response,” Brendan Rodgers told Match of the Day.

“We were outstanding in the second half but didn’t win the game. We came out with a positive mindset and had chances to put it to bed.

“The most important thing is getting the players into those positions. It’s still very early in the season. In the second half, I thought we were very good. We will look for three points next week.”

Chelsea have now gone two games without a win in the English Premier League.
