‘Lookman Was Excellent Against Arsenal’ – Leicester Boss Rodgers 

‘Lookman Was Excellent Against Arsenal’ – Leicester Boss Rodgers 

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers has described Ademola Lookman’s performance against Arsenal as excellent, despite the Foxes losing 2-0 at the King Power stadium on Saturday.

Goals from Gabriel and Emile Smith Rowe in the opening 20 minutes sent Leicester on their way to a first loss in six games in all competitions.

Lookman came on in the second half and helped improve the home team’s performance.

He nearly made an immediate impact but saw his strike saved by Aaron Ramsdale at the near post.

And following the defeat, Rodgers praised Lookman for coming into the game and putting pressure on the Arsenal defence.

“We were too passive, so it is a concern,” the Northern Irish coach said after the game. 

“When you have players finding the level and the constant mentality, if you don’t start the game well, then it can cost you and it cost us. In the second half, we can’t have any complaints. I thought we were excellent.

“We had to make changes to shift the dynamic of the game, but we got punished for that opening 20 minutes. Both [Harvey Barnes and Ademola Lookman] were excellent. They gave us that pressure higher up the pitch. We could condense the game up there and we were much better.”
