duel Leicester vs Tottenham in continuation First League will take place on Thursday (01/20/2022) in the early morning of the WIB in the King Power Stadium. Leicester led 2-1 until the last minute of the game.
After a 1-1 draw at half-time, Leicester took the lead thanks to a 76th-minute goal from James Maddison. However, Leicester’s win, which was in sight, was dispelled in added time.
Steven Bergwijn, who came on from Tottenham in the 79th minute, became a dream job for Leicester. Bergwijn scored two goals in minutes 90’+5 and 90’+7, allowing Leicester to turn back and lose 2-3.
Brendan Rodgers regretted Leicester’s last-minute performance. Rodgers said his team gave Tottenham the win.
“Very good work over 93 minutes. We showed resilience in defence. The goals we scored were also exceptional,” Rodgers said BT-Sport.
“To concede the equalizer at the end of the game was disappointing but to concede a goal like the winner was terrible. It’s hard not to take anything away from this game.”
“It’s about managing the game. Basically, we missed the key moments that led to the second and third goals. Youri (Tielemans) knows he can never make that pass, he’s very naive.”
“Tonight was actually a good opportunity, but you have to pass it on. I don’t think Tottenham won the game, we gave them the three points.”
“It’s very disappointing but we have to get back to training for the weekend,” Rodgers said.
That defeat means Leicester City haven’t moved away from 10th place Premier League Rankings with 25 points from 19 games.
