Leicester City vs Tottenham 2 − 4 (Premier League Goals & Highlights 2021)

3 weeks ago

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers says he has "nothing but pride" for his players despite seeing their hopes of Champions League qualification dashed by a dramatic final-day defeat by Tottenham.

Starting the last round of fixtures in fifth place, the Foxes knew their best chance of finishing in the top four was to win and hope Liverpool and Chelsea slipped up in their respective final games.

Chelsea did leave the door open, losing 2-1 at Aston Villa, but Leicester were unable to do their part and finished a point behind Thomas Tuchel's Blues.

It means the Europa League awaits the Foxes again.

"It's hugely disappointing for us," Rodgers told BBC Sport. "We fought so hard all season. I always said you're judged after 38 games, and unfortunately we couldn't quite make it.
