London :Brendan Rodgers says Leicester need to “reset mentally” to stay in charge of their Champions League destiny after their slump continued with a 2-1 loss at Everton.
“I think we have shown over the course of the season we have got the talent but there is no doubt that we have to have a reset mentally if we are going to go and achieve what we want to achieve.” Rodgers said his team were still in a “fantastic” position.
“We have been terrific for a lot of the season,” he said. “Our level has been high and somehow we need to work our way back to that.” Everton took an early two-goal lead at Goodison Park through Richarlison and Gylfi Sigurdsson, who scored from the penalty spot.
Kelechi Iheanacho pulled one back for Leicester after the break but the visitors could not find an equaliser despite applying plenty of pressure.
Everton defender Michael Keane felt beating Leicester was a declaration of intent.
“We want to get into Europe and this was a must-win,” said Keane.
