Speaking after the game Rodgers praised his players for their performance in the game.

“Our football was outstanding, we could have had more if we had been,” Birminghammail.co.uk quoted Rodgers as saying.

“Tete is an out and out winger and he was outstanding, he gives us the space in the middle by playing so wide.

“Second half we were solid, tight and organised against a team whose recent record has been very good. There is no doubt about the mentality of this team. We were calm when we came under pressure and we deserved the win.”

The Foxes are 13th in the Premier League standings after totalling 21 points from 21 games.

Leicester City play Tottenham Hotspurs next in the Premier League on Saturday, February 11 at the King Power Stadium.
