Managers Reaction 

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers: “It was very frustrating not to have taken at least a point from the game. We started well and looked like a threat in the game. We’re disappointed with the goal that was disallowed. The ‘keeper has made a mistake in his timing. It was a great header. We went to sleep at the beginning of the second half, we were too passive and let them play through too easily. Then we didn’t press the shot on the edge of the box and if you go behind in a game against 10 men it can be really difficult. In fairness to the players, we kept going, the spirit was really good and we had opportunities. There’s no doubt we should have taken at least a point.”

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel: “Today he is responsible for what he did and he knows this was a huge mistake. It’s a very, very bad decision from Conor, and of course, he’s upset – everyone was upset because it almost killed the whole match. Tuchel also aimed criticism at his team as a whole for allowing an attacking corner to be turned into a Leicester counter-attack, which led to Gallagher’s second yellow card.”
