Morgan pleased for Porto-conquering Leicester, Slimani

Leicester City captain Wes Morgan was a proud man on Tuesday night.

The Foxes bounced back from the weekend's disappointing 4-1 loss to Manchester United by beating FC Porto 1-0 in the Champions League.

The reigning English champions made it two from two in Europe's premier club competition thanks to a first-half header from Islam Slimani which has the East Midlands outfit sitting top of Group G with a perfect record after their 3-0 victory over Club Brugge a fortnight ago.

"We know we've got to be resilient, especially at home," said centre-half Morgan.

"We had to dig in at the end there so it's pleasing to get 3pts.

"Slimani is a handful and he works hard for his goals so he deserves a lot of credit. Pleased for him tonight."
