Brendan Rodgers admitted Albion’s initial set up provided problems for his Leicester team but explained what the Foxes did to counteract the Baggies’ tactics. Leicester had a really poor end to the previous campaign as they slipped to fifth in the table after being third for the most part of the season with assured Champions League this season.
Brendan Rodgers said “They were obviously playing five at the back, which always makes it difficult to break through, And then, when if you don’t have the runs penetrating and the speed of the pass, then of course, it’s difficult to create, but once we organised that at half-time, I felt we were much better in our running off the ball, our rotation. Our mobility was much better and then we started to attack more. So yes, much better second half. I think that in the first half at times we didn’t deal overly well with the diagonal ball, so we needed to press that better and we did that in the second half.”
