Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers speaking to BBC Match of the Day: "We needed to be ready to fight and show resilience and it was important three points for us. We had to change the system in the last 25 minutes to cope with the balls coming into the box.

"It is a very young group but they are all focused and doing well for me. It was fantastic technique for Harvey's goal and that kind of goal was worthy of being the winning goal.

"We played two tough games prior to today and we played a really tough team today as well, but we got through it and i'm so proud of the players."
