Leicester boss Rodgers: Brentford style unique to Prem

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers says Brentford perform with a unique style to the Premier League.

Rodgers was speaking after victory at Brentford on Sunday. Counteracting Brentford's relentless playing style proved successful for Rodgers' men on Sunday and the Leicester manager was pleased with the way the visitors executed their game plan.

"We spoke about it," he told LCFC TV. "They're unique in terms of where they push right in. They try to keep you in there with the defending.

"Obviously Youri's first [goal] was great.

"We had to defend well, but Kasper's then picked out Kels (Kelechi Iheanacho) and then the desire of the players to want to get up there and score... that was very, very important."
