Brendan Rodgers merincikan, Leicester City memang 'mengundang' para pemain Manchester City untuk memasuki wilayahnya. Baru kemudian, menghabisinya.

"Kami membawa mereka ke setengah lapangan. Barulah dengan transisi yang baik dengan dua-tiga operan kami menyerang balik. Kami menyerang dengan cepat dan mencoba membuat banyak peluang," papar eks manajer Liverpool tersebut.

"Kami memang sempat tertinggal. Namun kami tetap tenang dan merepotkan mereka, para pemain semuanya bekerja keras dan tampil brilian," tutup Rodgers.
