The Clarets boss told BBC Sport: "We're really pleased. It was a deserved win in different ways. We had some question marks around us recently, which is kind of a backhanded compliment. There was a big sign of moving forward with that performance.
"We know what we are about and we reminded the group of that this week. But there was good play today. We asked different questions. The performance was important to me as a manager, not just the win."
Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers kept stating his ambitions were largely in check when his side were on an eight-match winning run and looking the team most likely to challenge Liverpool.
