Chelsea defeated Leicester City 3-0 at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon, and it was a massive victory for the Blues to ensure we remain at the top of the table after match week 12.

Brendan Rodgers side was totally outclassed at the King Power Stadium, and the Foxes boss admitted he was very disappointed after the game.

According to Rodgers, his side has been overachieving, and the 3-0 defeat to Chelsea only showed the difference in budget between the two teams.

“I’ve got to say it’s very disappointing. I think that we have a sense of perspective of where this team has been over these last few years,” the Leicester head coach told reporters at his post-match press conference.

“We’ve totally overachieved in these last couple of years to arrive not only in the top six but in and around that top four and challenging.

“We’ve been challenging some of these teams that are way above us in terms of budget and depth of squad.

“I was disappointed for the players because they’re such a honest group of players, they’ve given so much.

“We’re not quite at our level of confidence, absolutely, and there’s lots of challenges for us with people out and lots of games and without that real depth of squad to cope with that, that’s difficult.

“To hear that at half-time was disappointing, especially against a team of Chelsea’s level. Yeah, we weren’t great, but it’s something that’s so important for a player because a player will feel that.”
