Brendan Rodgers has backed Leicester to recover after their late nightmare against Tottenham. The Foxes host Brighton on Sunday following Wednesday’s last-gasp capitulation against Spurs. Steven Bergwijn scored twice in injury time as Leicester blew a 2-1 lead to lose 3-2 at the King Power Stadium. But Rodgers believe the Foxes will have healed their wounds ahead of the Seagulls’ visit. He said: “There was a 12-second period which changed the narrative of the game. “At the end it’s managing that and that shows this group has so much improvement in them.

Brendan Rodgers has warned that Leicester City may have already reached their pinnacle as he tries to pick them up from their devastating defeat to Tottenham and reignite a European push.

The Leicester boss branded football the ‘University of Adversity’ after his side threw away a lead deep into stoppage time in their dramatic loss in midweek.

He must find a way to inspire his injury-hit side to put disappointment behind them as they welcome Brighton to the King Power Stadium this afternoon with the club as close to the relegation zone as they are to the top seven.

Rodgers says he’s still ‘excited’ for the challenge of getting Leicester into Europe but admits that their two successive fifth-placed finishes and FA Cup triumph could be as good as they can achieve with their finances compared to their rivals.

Tennis-Tomic's COVID-19 prediction comes true as he tests positive

Brendan Rogers is the physical embodiment of the Premier League itself, which means he could be successful in Leicester for as long fans can stand him. This may not accurately describe a real conversation with the real Brendan Rodgers . But there is an idea of Brendan Rodgers : the manager that doesn’t train, but educates; the high priest of death by football; the man who steers the magic carpet of development. He lives in the space between the genie of the lamp, David Brent, and 30 Rock’s Rural Juror scriptwriters.

Try as they might , anti-human, anti-American globalists can’t convince conservatives and Christians to commit vaccine suicide. This doesn’t necessarily mean that what comes next is any better, of course. Note that some analysts I’ve interviewed, such as Jeffrey Prather, believe China will not even need to escalate this to ground warfare because they have already infiltrated and control nearly every institution of power in the United States. So opinions do vary on what’s next, but yesterday I received intel from another source that told me Russia is currently engaged in paying Mexican drug cartels to smuggle

‘We’re not too far from where our budget is,’ said Rodgers. ‘I’ve a dose of realism from when I came in here. I said I wanted to disrupt the market and we have done that. We have won things - which is great. Progress has been hampered a little bit this season.

‘With success, what happens is that you have two fifth-placed finishes and then you qualify for European football, people think you have created a foundation for success but for a club like ourselves, it may be the pinnacle. Because of resources and where others are at, it’s very difficult.

‘People think we are not taking one of the big clubs in this country into the top five then there’s massive resources to push it on. These players have been brilliant in these last couple of seasons. If we are missing players, then that’s where it’s at. We are on par, as such.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson says thanks to booster shots and people following the rules, the Omicron wave " has now peaked " in the U.K., so the rules are being lifted. "Our scientists believe it is likely that the Omicron wave has now peaked nationally," Johnson said, attributing the end of the most recent COVID-19 surge to "the extraordinary [vaccine] booster campaign, together with the way the public have responded" to the restrictions brought in when Omicron hit.

Fifth was nowhere in terms of what Brendan Rodgers hoped to achieve this year. Chelsea slipped up at Aston Villa but finished fourth with Liverpool in third spot. Tottenham will play in the UEFA Conference League after a miserable campaign. The result for Leicester may see Spurs go in for Foxes boss Rodgers once again. Here, Kasper Schmeichel, the Leicester goalkeeper, actually threw a punch in its proper context, and must have wished he hadn't. The hero of last weekend's FA Cup final triumph tried to punch clear a corner and accidentally diverted the ball into his own net.

‘My job is to elevate us beyond that and push and that’s what we have always done: win things, play good football and bring young players through. That’s the vision as it was outlined. For me, it’s to disrupt, keep fighting and all within keeping the club in a sustainable place.

'Whether that’s success or failure, it’s all about the narrative. I know where we have been and where we are taking the club. If expectation is there, that’s great because it means we’ve achieved something.’

No side has suffered as many injuries as Leicester this season who are still missing key players such as Jamie Vardy, Jonny Evans and Wesley Fofana. However, Rodgers was able to welcome back impressive defender James Justin against Tottenham and the Leicester boss his hopeful their injury luck is about to turn.

Brendan is by far and away the "biggest" appointment the club has made in the last 16 years, and having someone in with a worldwide profile is quite the coup for the SPFL and for Celtic. This is a much-needed sign of ambition from the club and one that's got everyone really excited. Despite being a bit odd sometimes, he is a top manager (and not another experimental "project") who has the respect of a lot of players out there. I might just make my way along to Celtic Park on Monday to join the festivities!

‘It’s been unfortunate, when you look at all the clubs and the injuries, It’s been unfortunate across the board,’ said Rodgers. ‘We will get those guys back and really look to attack the second half of the season.’

The feelings are still raw from their incredible defeat on Wednesday night when Leicester led Spurs 2-1 with less than 30 seconds to play and had a goal-kick, only to lose 3-2 courtesy of a rapid double by substitute Steven Bergwijn.

‘Football, like life, if you lose something that you have it can be very painful,’ said Rodgers. ‘Clearly in the game we were in a great position, seconds away from what would have been a great result. Then we lost it. It is painful, it is suffering, because it is such a big blow for us.

‘I said to the players that football is the University of Adversity. You learn to pick yourself up in football. If you don’t, you’re never going to push on. That is both coaches and players. When you are in this game, you know it is not an upward curve all the way.

'The learning is that when the pain comes, and the suffering comes, that you react the right way. That is why I am here, to pick the players up, identify where we can be better.

'Naturally it does hurt but that is the job and it is my responsibility. I think we have shown in the time we have been here that we have suffered we have been able to get back up and fight again. That is what’s important.'
