The Leicester City boss believes Napoli didn’t ‘create too many chances and we had good possession’ during their 2-2 draw, despite the statistics showing something else.

Leicester City

had a 2-0 lead in their Europa League group stage opener clash against

Napoli

, but it was for Partenopei wasting a lot of chances.

Victor Osimhen pulled the game level with his late brace and helped his side secure a point.

Disappointed with the end result but some exciting and good moments – the two goals are outstanding and one disallowed that was tight,”

Brendan Rodgers

told

BT Sport

.

“Maybe we tired a bit, some players were getting minutes in their legs. There are things for us to improve on – keeping the ball better for longer periods, if we did that we wouldn’t tire so quickly.

“The effort and mentality was good, it is a shame we couldn’t close it out. I don’t think they created too many chances, we had good possession. You have to do all the unglorified stuff, the last goal we just couldn’t quite get there to stop the cross.”

Napoli had 58 percent possession based on the statistics and attempted to find the target 22 times when Leicester had seven.

“The crime isn’t giving away the two goals, the crime is if you don’t learn from it – I’m sure that is something this young team will do. The support was amazing, the noise, how they tried to lift the team, they gave us everything,”

added Rodgers.
