Do not judge Leicester on last four games, says Rodgers

first_imgLeicester City are enjoying a successful campaign and should not be judged on their string of poor results since the season’s resumption after the COVID-19 break, manager Brendan Rodgers said on Friday.Third-placed Leicester have picked up just two points from their last three Premier League games and crashed out of the FA Cup last week after a 1-0 defeat by Chelsea in the quarter-finals. Rodgers told reporters ahead of Saturday’s visit from 12th-placed Crystal Palace: “We accept collectively we’re in an adverse moment.“We haven’t gotten the results we want and the main challenge is to come through that.“There’s got to be a sense of perspective.“Don’t judge the side based on the last four games, but over the course of the whole season.“We’re still in a brilliant position. “I wouldn’t swap it for any other.”Jamie Vardy, the league’s joint top scorer with 19 goals, has failed to find the back of the net since the Premier League’s restart, but Rodgers brushed off concerns over the striker’s form heading into the final six games of the season.He said: “I’m not worried about Vardy.“He’s been a breath of fresh air ever since I joined the club.“His talent and goal-scoring abilities are right up there with the best. “His form mirrors where the team is at.“When he gets opportunities, he will take them.“We’ve spoken about ways to get him more chances.”A spike in the city’s COVID-19 cases prompted police to institute a local lockdown on Monday, but Rodgers said his side had no concerns over taking the fieldRelatedPosts COVID-19: NCAA to revoke erring airlines licence over non-compliance FRSC to Schools: We’ll arrest, prosecute drivers who flout COVID-19 rules Sanwo-Olu: We’re committed to fulfilling promises to Lagosians He added: “Nothing has changed.“It’s worth pointing out that the city’s been doing everything they can to adhere to local health guidelines and they deserve credit.”The Leicester boss confirmed playmaker James Maddison was still battling a hip injury and could miss Saturday’s clash.Reuters/NAN.Tags: Brendan RodgersCOVID-19Crystal PalaceFA CupLeicester Citylast_img read more

Schmidt happy with Jackson display

first_img “He could run but if he’d stayed on he would have done further damage. “It was a massive opportunity for Chris, he’s worked extremely hard to get it. “It’s really disappointing for him to be literally hamstrung. He tried to play through it, but it was determined that it wasn’t something he could play on with.” Until his injury Henry had looked sharp at the breakdown, an area that left Schmidt relatively pleased. Captain on the night Jamie Heaslip, try-scorer Peter O’Mahony and replacement Sean O’Brien backed up Henry’s turnover work too. But Schmidt warned the contact area will be another facet Ireland must sharpen in time for Australia’s visit. He said: “I think we could argue six to eight turnovers were forced by us on the ground. “Others we were able to capitalise on slightly loose play from them, but we can probably still be reasonably pleased with that work.” The 21-year-old Ulster playmaker led Ireland’s line in Saturday’s 40-9 victory over Samoa to open the autumn international series. Jonathan Sexton’s hip-injury absence led to a straight fight between Jackson and Leinster’s Ian Madigan for the number 10 shirt. Schmidt had explained in the build-up how Madigan’s limited club opportunities this term proved a hindrance, with Kiwi Jimmy Gopperth impressing for the province. And after Ireland’s five-try triumph against the Samoans, the new head coach felt vindicated in handing the form club man the back-line reins. “I thought Paddy was really assured,” said Schmidt. “Our kicking out of the hand wasn’t as good as it could have been at times. We’ll have to kick better out of hand across the board against Australia. “But Paddy did marshal everyone really well and it was an assured performance from Paddy. “It’s not easy to come into that mix and control things like that, but I think we saw the evidence of his club form helping him settle.” Hoping for good news this week on openside flanker Chris Henry, Schmidt confirmed the gritty Ulster loose forward suffered a hamstring problem at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium. Schmidt said: “I think Chris may have a slight hamstring tear. Paddy Jackson’s “assured” display further boosts Ireland’s fly-half competition, according to head coach Joe Schmidt.
