“We showed a real appetite and hunger and tactically we were very good. Our pressing was excellent, the boys are understanding tactically how we want to press and the importance of that. Each game, each day in training we are getting more used to it.

“My teams have always pressed when we haven’t got the ball and it has to be synchronised. It was a great finish from Wes Morgan to a very well worked corner.

“We had 18 shots on goal which is a real positive. I like what Jamie Vardy does, he’s in the box to score goals and he was very brave to score.”
