Managers Reaction

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers: “We were so passive, we lacked energy and made it far too easy. We can defend both goals better.” he added. “We had chances in the first half. The keeper has made a great save and recovered well for the second one. We changed the system that has been working well for us, and in the second half, we were a much better team. But we rue the start, and that’s what costs you.”

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta: “We need to carry on, we haven’t done anything. We’ve won a couple of matches, we’re not where we want to be still. We ask a lot of things to improve, let’s keep humble, keep working hard, and go game by game. There are a lot of positives, but again there are lots of things to improve.”
