Leicester City finished 5th in the Premier League, a point behind Chelsea.

According to Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers, Leicester City failed to beat Tottenham Hotspur and finish above Chelsea because of injuries to Wesley Fofana and Jonny Evans.

Speaking to the BBC, Rodgers said: “It’s hugely disappointing for us. We fought so hard all season. I always said you’re judged after 38 games and unfortunately we couldn’t quite make it.

“I have nothing but pride and admiration for the players. They’ve constantly had things go against them with injuries. If you look at the importance of the players out today, we were able to take it down to the last game and the last 15 minutes.

“The biggest factor [in losing Wesley Fofana] is we lose that extra height and presence in set-piece moments. Usually we have Jonny [Evans] and Wesley, good presence and we conceded from two set-pieces.”
