Rodgers Takes Positives From Opening Defeat

Brendan Rodgers saw enough from his Leicester side to be positive about the future, despite a 2-1 defeat at Watford.

Rodgers, back in the Premier League for the first time since losing his job at Liverpool in October 2015, looked to be opening his Foxes tenure with a point after Jamie Vardy cancelled out Troy Deeney’s fifth-minute opener.

But Andre Gray ruined his day when he struck an injury-time winner at Vicarage Road. The match got off to a poor start but after Vardy’s 76th-minute leveller, Leicester looked the more likely side until Gray’s intervention.

“I have got a good idea from watching the team in terms of that the needs are for the summer,” he said. “It’s a case of coming in and working with the players we have.

“They are a fantastic group of players, who have a great spirit and are very keen to learn. “I said to them despite the result we have had a really good week’s training, they have taken on board the areas we spoke about.

“I know we can improve, there are things we need to get better at, but there is a lot of potential in there. I am looking forward to another week’s training before my first home game.”
