Brendan Rodgers admitted he was disappointed his Leicester side only picked up a point against 10-man Saints – but credited the hosts for making it “incredibly difficult”.
Brendan Rodgers said “We’re obviously disappointed with the result considering the circumstances of the game. We are normally very good in those situations, 11 v 10 (but) I didn’t think we were fast enough in the game and we didn’t play with the intensity we wanted to. We have to give credit to Southampton, they made it incredibly difficult. They went in front so they had a cause to fight for. We had to fight back and the point could prove very important for us.”
Saints had to play 80 minutes a man light after Jannik Vestergaard was sent off by referee Robert Jones. But with the St Mary’s side having taken the lead through James Ward-Prowse, Jonny Evans’s header earned the Foxes a 1-1 draw.
