Leicester boss Rodgers: We were prepared for VAR frustration

Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers says they were prepared for VAR frustration going into victory over Tottenham.

While both sides had goals chalked off by a VAR decision, Rodgers says City were not affected during a thrilling encounter on Filbert Way.

“We've spoken about it a number of times," said Rodgers of VAR. “We're specifically talked about retaining your focus however which way it goes.

“It's something that's been brought in that's new and if players get over-affected by it, it might disrupt your performance.

“I think you've seen today that it went for us and it went against us. It didn't matter, we kept pushing and we kept fighting. We kept showing moments of quality."
