Leicester boss Rodgers: Beating Arsenal just a great victory

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers was delighted with their 2-0 defeat of Arsenal.

Jamie Vardy and James Maddison struck for the Foxes.

Rodgers said, "This is a team that's very focused, very good defensively, and I felt we controlled large parts of the game.

"A great victory for us against players that can really hurt you. We were able to manage that threat and play some great football.

"The way it's been going for a period of time now, it's nice because the players know they have the qualities to win any game against any opposition.

"You're playing against a top team with really good players, so you have to be patient but we showed real quality to break through. A very, very important three points."
