Speaking in the same vein, Leicester City manager, Brendan Rodgers hailed his men.
“It was an excellent win for us,” the Northern Irishman told LCFC TV.
“In the first half, in particular, our football was very, very good… our movement, the speed of the game, the pressing was really good.
“We were really hungry in that first half.
“We conceded a poor goal from our perspective after 48 minutes, so that gives them momentum for the next 15-20 minutes.
“But we then got to grips with the game again. We still had one or two chances.
“Vards (Jamie Vardy) was through, he looked like he was going to get in and score.
“There were one or two moments where their ‘keeper makes a great save from James’ free-kick and then,
by the end, on the back end of European travel and a tough game,
we had to defend strongly, and the players did that fantastically.”
Maddison, meanwhile, was forced to withdraw on 64 minutes after picking up a knock and Rodgers was able to provide an initial update on his condition.
“It’s just his hip,” the 48-year-old explained.
“He had an issue with it last season.
“He’s just felt it on a corner that he took, so we’ll see how he is over the next couple of days.”
