Rodri labels Leicester ‘lucky’ in Manchester City collapse

Manchester City midfielder Rodri has called Leicester City lucky despite the Foxes claiming a thumping win at the Etihad Stadium at the weekend.

The Foxes originally fell behind to Riyad Mahrez’s early strike but a hat-trick from Jamie Vardy, as well as strikes from James Maddison and Youri Tielemans, ensured that the Citizens conceded five at home in the Premier League for the first time since 2003.

However, Rodri was not all too convinced at the tactics deployed by Rodgers and his charges.

Talking to Sky Sports after the clash, the Spaniard said: “Football has not been fair with us. We deserved many things. We played, we tried. Only with a few things they come here, do two or three things and beat us. I don’t know if it’s our fault or their strength.

“I am young and I try to learn every game. But games like this when [the] opponent does nothing but wait, wait, wait – even when you are winning – you are a bit confused and you don’t know what to do.

“For me, the learning from this match is to score one goal then do a hundred passes at the back – that’s it, then game over. But we try and go for the second, the third, that makes us lose balls and concede.

“For me, they’re lucky. With two or three things they win this game. It’s OK and we have to congratulate them, but it’s not the way I like to play.”

Manchester City will hope they can get back to winning ways in cup action on Wednesday evening against Burnley. Guardiola’s troops can be backed at a price of 1/3 with Paddy Power to win the game at Turf Moor.
