“I think Liverpool deserved to win. We start to play so late, I don’t know why. We closed very well all the space but when they create a right chance, they score a goal.”

2. (SOUNDBITE) (English) LEICESTER CITY MANAGER CLAUDIO RANIERI SAYING:

“We are very, very down because we wanted to win but not every time is possible. Our fort was good but if there is another team who play better than you or maybe is more clear when there are chances to score a goal well done to them. But we tried to do our best until the end and this is my philosophy, we tried to do this and I’m not happy but it’s OK.”

3. (SOUNDBITE) (English) LEICESTER CITY MANAGER CLAUDIO RANIERI SAYING:

“Now it’s important to recover energy, and more mental – more mental because after the match there are another match, big match, big challenge, it’s OK, it’s OK, sooner or later we must lose, we had to lose but it’s OK.”

STORY: Cracks finally appeared in Leicester City’s armour as a 10-match unbeaten sequence that propelled them to the top of the Premier League ended in a 1-0 defeat at Liverpool on Saturday (December 26).

The surprise Christmas leaders were subdued and struggled to contain an energetic Liverpool side who deservedly took the points at Anfield courtesy of substitute Christian Benteke’s second-half effort.

It was only Leicester’s second league defeat of the season and the first time they failed to score — with deadly duo Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez, who have scored 29 of Leicester’s 37 league goals this season, well shackled.

Manager Claudio Ranieri said England striker Vardy had been playing with a fever while Algerian Mahrez had been tired. Both players were substituted in the second half.

Leicester will have to recover quickly as they host Manchester City on Tuesday, a side Ranieri described as “another big rock” in the way of Leicester’s ambitions.

“I think Liverpool deserved to win. We start to play so late, I don’t know why. We closed very well all the space but when they create a right chance, they score a goal,” Ranieri, whose side have 38 points from 18 games, three more than third-placed City, said.

“We are very, very down because we wanted to win but not every time is possible. Our fort was good but if there is another team who play better than you or maybe is more clear when there are chances to score a goal well done to them. But we tried to do our best until the end and this is my philosophy, we tried to do this and I’m not happy but it’s OK,” Ranieri said.
