Brendan Rodgers hailed his Leicester City side for a commanding performance against Sheffield United.
Leicester was in great need of a win last night to keep up in the Champions League race. However, they were in poor form for a long time and it was a great result against a difficult opponent.
The Foxes won 2-0 against the Blades in what was a thrilling encounter and Rodgers was a happy man to see his team back on the winning side.
“I thought we were brilliant, Sheffield United deserve so much credit for how they have worked and how Chris Wilder has got them playing, but we were outstanding,” Rodgers told Sky Sports.
“We have played well since we have come back but not been consistent enough. Tonight we were able to do that. A very good performance.
“The result gives us the second-highest finish in Leicester’s history. We have two games to go to create some more history.”
“He has got that incredible composure, his first game at a first-team level against a really good team – he lasted so well, aggressive, tenacious, and can pass the ball. He got a big round of applause, absolutely delighted for him and the team.”
