Liverpool boss satisfied with Leicester draw despite throwing 2-0 lead

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers insists he isn’t disappointed with the club’s 2-2 draw with Leicester City on Thursday, despite being two goals up at home, Daily Star reports.

The Reds looked to be on course of winning their third game in succession after two Steven Gerrard penalties against newly promoted Leicester, but the Foxes fought back with goals from David Nugent and Jeff Schlupp to salvage a point.

And while most Liverpool fans are extremely annoyed, the manager claims he had no complaints over the result.

“We missed an opportunity at 2-0 up but I can’t be too disappointed,” he said.

“We didn’t play well and Leicester did, so a point was about right. We’ve got seven points out of nine, and that keeps us moving forward.

“We said at half-time it was still a dangerous game and once they got momentum they continued to play well. We didn’t create enough in final third to warrant three points.

“Leicester played very well and have got players with speed at the top end of the field, which always makes it dangerous.

“We’re obviously disappointed at being 2-0 up and conceding the goals that we did – really poor goals, giving the ball away so cheaply, not defending well enough when you are getting shots scored from outside the box.”
