‘Fight until the end’ – Rodgers not giving up in battle for top six



Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers has vowed to keep chasing the top six after victory over Crystal Palace on Sunday afternoon.

Ademola Lookman and the impressive Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall struck in the first half to earn a 2-1 win.

Wilfried Zaha pulled a goal back – following up after Kasper Schmeichel saved his penalty. The goalkeeper had already denied the striker from the spot but VAR had ruled Caglar Soyuncu had encroached.

The Foxes are ninth in the Premier League, 11 points behind sixth-placed West Ham with three games in hand, and Rodgers refused to give up the hunt.

He said: “We can’t stop until the last whistle goes, we have been really unfortunate and it’s been a real challenge for us without our top players. Now they are coming back and because they are back it means I can rest some and put in a fresh team.

“It’s going to be a big challenge because we are playing right the way through and we’re going to fight until the very end.

“I thought Kiernan was outstanding. He is a young player who since he has come into the team he is everything which represents a team of mine. Honest, great industry, runs, works, presses and has got quality.

“We were saying to him, as a number eight, the job is to create goals and score goals and he has made a lovely pass for Ade’s first and the second goal he scored was first class.

“He has made a real impact with his honesty and quality and I’m delighted for him.”

Elsewhere, Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale has slammed his team’s “really poor” performance in their 2-1 loss to Brighton.

“It’s not good enough,” Ramsdale said. “Two games on the spin where the first 45 minutes has got away from us. You make it an uphill battle against any team in the Premier League if you’re losing at half-time.

“It was a really poor performance and as I said we went to the end but that’s a given at any club, especially this club. When you give a team a step up in the Premier League it’s always hard to get back in the game.”
