Ranieri frustrated with Leicester loss

Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri was left frustrated after he saw his team fail to record a single shot on goal in the 3-0 loss to Chelsea on Saturday at Stamford Bridge.

The reigning champions have struggled to start the season, and is on a three-game winless streak in the league after the loss to Chelsea. Ranieri saw his team have five efforts throughout the whole game, with none hitting the target.

“We conceded the first two goals, very strange goals and again one on the corner,” Ranieri said. “Too many goals we concede on the corner. We spoke a lot about this.

“The second goal was a ricochet. It’s unbelievable that this happens every time.

“After, we got back in the match, the second half was better and we created some good chances but they scored a very good goal.

“I can say only thank you to our fans. Always when we win or when we lose, they push us all the time. They are fantastic, thank you so much to them.”

With the team taking on FC Copenhagen in the Champions League midweek, Ranieri made the decision to start Algerian internationals Riyad Mahrez and Islam Slimani on the bench against Chelsea.

“I was thinking also about the Champions League,” Ranieri admitted. “Today we had a very good, well-organized team. I wanted my players to be fresh because the Champions League is now.

“Copenhagen is a tougher match than today. They are very organized, strong and we must be concentrated.”
