Leicester Deserved More- Claudio Ranieri

Claudio Ranieri felt Leicester City deserved more after Bournemouth inflicted a seventh away defeat on the Premier League champions. After an abject first 45 minutes in which Marc Pugh gave Bournemouth the lead, the Foxes produced a stirring second-half display but came up short against an inspired Cherries rearguard, Leonardo Ulloa going closest in the final minute.

He said “The result is too severe against us because we created more chances than Bournemouth but they won so well done to them, I wanted a little more in the first half because if we had a little more we could have scored a goal. We could have recovered more second balls for this reason. The second half was much better. They scored in the first half and that went with serve. We made some mistakes but it's OK, the team is alive.”

Leicester failed to build on Saturday's stunning victory over Manchester City as an eighth league defeat left them four points clear of the relegation zone in 14th position. Despite this, Ranieri insisted the champions were still on an upward curve, adding “It's not a step back. The result is, yes, but it's important to continue to play with intensity, shape and attitude we did. We want to be consistent, it's not possible but now we go back at home and we are ready to fight Saturday.
