Leicester City manager Brendon Rodgers criticised his forward Kelechi Iheanacho after the Leicester City striker missed out a great chance to draw the game against his former side Manchester City last night.

Iheanacho disappointed Leicester fans – as well as Liverpool fans – after a shocking miss in the last five minutes of the game, an effort that could have made sure the game ended in a tie.

The Foxes were trailing 1-0 at the time, all thanks to Kompany’s mesmerising goal in the 70th minute.

Former Liverpool boss Rodgers clearly stated his disappointment towards the striker after the match and said that his mistake cost Leicester City the game.

“He should score, I said that to him afterwards, in the big games there are not many moments.

“It was tight, we were very, very good in our defensive organisations. They didn’t have many chances and we didn’t have many. But the one that came, you have to score that. He knows.

“It’s moments when you can come into the game and make an impact, he’s a great boy, works very, very hard in training.

“He’s got in front of him a top-class operator in Jamie [Vardy] so it’s difficult for him to find rhythm. However, it’s moments like that where you can make an impact. He’s actually done that in the other games.

“It was a big chance for him, the ball was there and it was on his good side. But it wasn’t to be. He got himself in the position, I felt we would have deserved that at least.”
