Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers to BBC Sport: "We played very well in the first half with a new system. The players had great fluency. We pressed really hard.

"We worked them in the second half, stretched the game and it led to the third goal. All three of our goals were wonderful. James Maddison is a magical player who has so much talent and confidence.

"We are so happy for Hamza Choudhury to get his first goal - he's a local boy who loves Leicester City.

"There is no way on this earth that you can ask players to play at the intensity we want without making a lot of changes. We made changes at West Ham and again today.

"Jamie Vardy has a tight calf, he is being treated and I didn't want to take any risks."
