Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers says the performance during the 1-0 loss against Manchester City suggests the future is a bright one. Vincent Kompany’s 30-yard stunner in the 70th minute settled a tense night at the Etihad Stadium for the home side, and ensured the Premier League title will be theirs with a win over Brighton this weekend.

However the Foxes came very close to throwing a spanner in the works as the game entered the final stages. They should arguably have equalised when former City youngster Kelechi Iheanacho, on as a substitute, got the ball on the edge of the area as the Foxes countered, only to send a tame shot comfortably wide. “Kelechi should score,” Rodgers said.
“I said that to him afterwards. There are not that many moments. They didn’t have many chances and nor did we. But the one that comes, you have to score that. He knows.” Rodgers, though, was proud of his side’s performance, and believes it offers a sign of things to come next season.
“Congratulations to Manchester City,” he said. “They won the game, it took an absolute worldy strike to score but we’re very proud and that gives us a great feeling for the future of this team.”
