Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers hails his opponent’s Chelsea midfielder Mason Mount despite the 2-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge.


Rodgers hails the Englishman as a top-level young player who has had an excellent season for Chelsea.

“I want to mention Mason Mount because this is a young guy. I’d heard early on in the season there was maybe doubts around him. Whether he should be playing or not for Chelsea,” he hailed Mount.

“This boy is top, top level. They can be very proud of him here at Chelsea, the academy. He’s an incredible footballer and he’s going to be that,” Rodgers continued.

However, Rodgers emphasizes the importance of winning the last game. He urged his players to do their part, get positive results and see where it will take them.

“I’ve said all along we’ll see where we’re at after 38 games,” Rodgers said.

“All we can do is get three points there and see where it takes us,” he added.

“We know we can win big games, let’s see if we can do it again,” the Leicester boss said.

“It will be great because we’ve got supporters in. You could sense the difference fans made tonight. So that will make a big difference for us,” he noted.

He admits that the fate of the top-four now hangs by a thread as they cannot control their competitors now. He added that both Liverpool and Chelsea have tough games ahead.

“For us, it’s about ourselves, we could never control what Liverpool or Chelsea has done. If we arrive in the top four, it will be a monumental effort,” Rodgers admitted.

“Every team has a hard game, Liverpool have Burnley and Crystal Palace who are tough teams to play against. Chelsea have to go to Villa, we play Tottenham. We can only focus on ourselves,” he added.
