“I thought the officials were really poor, I’ve got to say,” Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers was quoted as saying by Leicestershire Live.

“I don’t comment so much on them because I know it’s a very difficult job. But some of the decisions… I think we had Wilf [Ndidi] booked and Kelechi [Iheanacho] for the use of the elbow and it was clear it wasn’t. They were challenging for the ball, especially Wilf.

“And then there were a few decisions, particularly on Cengo [Under] towards the end, where we were clearly fouled and didn’t get it. I didn’t think it was a very good night for them to be honest.”

Iheanacho has scored three goals in seven outings in the Europa League this season.
