Brendan Rodgers - Leicester have the quality to win any game against any opposition.

Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers expressed his delight after their 2-0 win over Arsenal on Saturday.

The Foxes secured three points over the Gunners at the King Power stadium thanks to goals from Jamie Vardy and James Maddison in the second half.

Following the game, Rodgers heaped praise on Vardy, saying “he is up there with the very top strikers in European football”.

 "The way it's been going for a period of time now, it's nice because the players know they have the qualities to win any game against any opposition,” the Leicester coach said as BBC Sport quoted.

"You're playing against a top team with really good players, so you have to be patient but we showed real quality to break through. A very, very important three points.

"He [Vardy] is up there with the very, very top strikers in European football with what he brings to a team, his pressing. We've allowed him to do essentially what he wants to do - he's so honest, he'd press the whole back four if he could."

The win means the Foxes move to second spot in the Premier League table, five behind leaders Liverpool, who host Manchester City on Sunday.

"We are thinking about the development of the team and making them better and if we can bring European football here in my time, that would be great," said Rodgers.

"We have thrown a hand grenade right into the middle of it all. We are working very, very well. We will just concentrate on our performance levels until 10 games to go and assess it then.

"I came here to make an impact and create something that we can hopefully sustain over a number of years."
