Brendan Rodgers confesses set-pieces are Leicester City’s “Achilles heel”

Brendan Rodgers confesses set-pieces are Leicester City’s “Achilles heel”

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has admitted set-pieces are a weakness for his team.

The Foxes were handed their ninth defeat of the season against Liverpool on Thursday, with a brace from Diogo Jota giving his team all three points, and his first goal took place via a set-piece.

This has been an area of concern for the club throughout the season so far, and it is something that the Leicester boss is well aware of.

“We did not give away too many opportunities. But we have an Achilles’ heel at set-pieces, and that was a key moment in the game, with half an hour played,” Rodgers told the press.

“It was important we stayed in the game, and we did that. We got into some really good areas, but we did not play with the quality you need, and they then got the goal late.”

The Foxes will be back in action on Sunday when they face West Ham United in the Premier League.
