Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has said that his team defeated Arsenal in the Premier League because they were very focused and good, defensively.

Concise News reports that Jamie Vardy and James Maddison netted the goals as the flying Foxes spanked Unai Emery’s men 2-0 on Saturday night at the King Power Stadium.

While Vardy put the hosts ahead in the 68th minute, after a goalless first half, Maddison finished off the north London side seven minutes later.

It was another day to excitedly remember for the Foxes who climbed to second in the league standings by virtue of this win, while Arsenal dropped to sixth.

“This is a team that’s very focused, very good defensively, and I felt we controlled large parts of the game,” the former Liverpool manager said after the match.

“A great victory for us against players that can really hurt you. We were able to manage that threat and play some great football.

“The way it’s been going for a period of time now, it’s nice because the players know they have the qualities to win any game against any opposition.

“You’re playing against a top team with really good players, so you have to be patient but we showed real quality to break through. A very, very important three points.”

For Emery’s Arsenal, this was another night to forget as they are winless in their last five Premier League away games since beating Newcastle 1-0 on the opening weekend.
