Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers has praised his team after the Foxes broke their consecutive winning record in the English top flight on Sunday.

The East-Midlanders racked up their eighth successive win in the Premier League on Sunday as they thumped Aston Villa 4-1 away from home.

Rodgers, who signed a new contract with the club in midweek, praised his team for a stunning performance that has seen the current incumbent at the King Power Stadium achieve something that no other has managed to do.

Speaking to Sky Sports following the clash in the second city, he said: “I thought they were amazing today. It’s a real historic day for the club and I thought the performance warranted that.

“We always knew it was going to be a difficult place to come, Dean’s [Smith] team have a good record at home, with the crowd and everything, they can make it really difficult, but I thought we were very good.

“We had all types of goals today, we had a long period of possession for the second one, two counter-attacks, a set-piece and other chances. We kept going until the very end to try and score goals so it was an absolutely outstanding performance.”

Following yet another three points, the Foxes have now managed to secure second on the Premier League, building a six point gap between themselves and reigning champions Manchester City. As a result, there have been comparisons drawn with the 2015/16 season where Leicester won the league.

Whilst unlikely this campaign due to the form of Liverpool, the Foxes are very much in the betting to win the league this season at odds of 16/1 with Betfair.
