Claude Puel has insisted that Leicester deserved to get something from their game against Burnley on Saturday afternoon, going down 2-1 at Turf Moor.
A slow start saw the Foxes concede two goals within the first nine minutes before Jamie Vardy scored to give them hope, but Puel's side couldn't complete the comeback; leaving a nine-point gap between the two sides.
The Frenchman said of his team's performance: "We made things easy for the opposition today. Since the beginning, with two goals conceded. It was harsh because after we dominated the game, like the first-half we had a lot of chances in front of their goal with no success to score."
He continued: "In the second-half, we continued with a good tempo in the play, and a lot of chances also. I think we deserved another result today. Except for the first seven or eight minutes, it was a good game with a good tempo, quality and attitude by the squad and substitutes."
The result leaves Burnley looking nailed on for seventh position in the Premier League and a shot at European football, with Puel adding: "Congratulations to Burnley and their manager. They deserve things after their consistency this season. With good solidity and improvement."
Leicester have now suffered back-to-back defeats in the Premier League to fall beyond touching distance of the Clarets, with players now facing a challenge to stay motivated with nothing left to play for in the last few weeks of the campaign.
