Leicester boss Rodgers confident Brighton defeat a blip

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers is pleased with how the season is progressing, despite Sunday's 2-1 loss to Brighton.

The Foxes blew a two-goal lead to draw 2-2 with Napoli in their Europa League group stage opener on Thursday before falling to the Seagulls.

But Rodgers said Leicester must embrace the increased work-load as the price for their success in recent seasons.

When asked to assess the season to date, Rodgers told the club's website: "It's great, it's what top-level football is about. The last couple of years, we've qualified for Europe, we've won two trophies and this is the level.

"We had a tough game in midweek (2-2 vs Napoli), we should have won that game. We should have got something from today.

"So, you've just got to never get too disappointed. I was much, much happier with large elements of our game today.

"There are areas we will be better in and can be better in, and that's my job to find that solution. I was a lot more pleased with what I've seen today."
