Tottenham didn’t win, Leicester presented them three points – Rodgers.

Brendan Rodgers felt Leicester City’s shocking late capitulation against Tottenham was of their own making.

Leicester City only suffered a late capitulation against Tottenham because they presented them with the chance to steal three points, According to Brendan Rodgers.

Goals from Patson Daka and James Maddison on either side of Harry Kane’s 250th club strike appeared to have put Leicester on course for a much-needed victory at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday.

However, Steven Bergwijn equalised in the 95th minute and grabbed a dramatic second 79 seconds later after Your Tielemans ceded possession from the kick-off.

Spurs’ win came despite trailing after 94 minutes and 52 seconds, which is the latest a team has been losing before going on to win a Premier League match.

Rodgers criticised his players for failing to secure back-to-back top-flight wins for the first time since October from such a promising position.

Rodgers told BT Sport.

“It was 93 minutes of really good work. We showed good resilience in defence. The goals we scored were terrific.

“To concede the equaliser was disappointing to happen so late, but the winner was a very poor goal to concede.

“It is hard to not have taken anything from the game.

“It’s managing the game. Fundamentally, We missed out on key moments leading to the second goal and the third goal, You knows he can never make that pass, it was really naive of him.

“That was a great opportunity, but you have to see that through. I don’t think Tottenham won the game, we presented them the three points.

“It’s bitterly disappointing but we have to get back on the training pitch and prepare again for the weekend.”

So, what’s next for Leicester City?

Leicester next entertains Brighton and Hove Albion, who sit four points clear of them in ninth, on Sunday.
