Rodgers given a reminder
Brendan Rodgers will have been thinking that the Premier League was rather easy.
It had been a couple of years since he’d been in the division and his start to life at Leicester suggested his return would be a glorious one.
They headed into this game as heavy favourites but were nowhere near being the better team. Newcastle, the underdogs, controlled the game courtesy of Rafa Benitez’s tactics.
The 1-0 defeat was a reminder for Rodgers that unlike in Scotland, there are no easy games in the Premier League.
