Brendan Rodgers feels Leicester City were worthy of a win against Burnley as they were ‘clearly’ the better team.

Leicester City suffered their third defeat in their last five Premier League games after they failed to find a second goal in the match against Burnley.

Under manager Brendan Rodgers, the Foxes enjoyed a brilliant first half of the season. Leicester manage to surpass the likes of Man United, Chelsea and Tottenham and take the third place in the league table.

But, as the season goes deeper, Leicester seem to be running out of fuel. And manager Brendan Rodgers has urged his team to find their previous form back and keep the fight going. Rodgers also insisted that they were the better side against Burnley despite losing out to them.

“We were clearly the better team,” he told BBC Sport.

“We looked dangerous throughout the game. To come away with nothing is disappointing.

“We could have defended it better though. The second goal is the real disappointment, we didn’t do the basics well. We had a great start to the season,” Brendan Rodgers added.

“Now we’ve got fifteen games to go and we have to re-focus and get our winning mentality back again. That’s fighting, that’s running.”
