Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers speaking to BBC Sport: "I thought we deserved it. It was difficult in the first half, they sat in but we tried to stay positive and play our offensive game. To come from behind as well demonstrates the quality and mindset of this team to keep going.

"In any good team you have to have that. The best teams have spirit. This is a team that is so strong together. Kelechi is a wonderful demonstration of someone who trains with a great attitude every day. They allow this team to develop to the level it has been at because they work hard in training.

"Momentum is really important. I'm just so happy to see the players have the patience and the belief that they can consistently get results. We found a way with quality and determination. It's a very good win, now we have a big game again here on Wednesday."

On his conversation with substitute Kelechi Iheanacho: "It was just to give him the confidence to get him to do what we wanted him to. We had a shape we wanted to go to; it was giving him the confidence and reinforcing his role. The rest was him. I'm absolutely delighted for him."

Everton manager Marco Silva speaking to Match of the Day: "It's really harsh for us - we didn't deserve it at all. We deserved to take something more in this game.

"Nothing to say about the attitude and commitment. We were playing against a confident team. Of all their games at home this might have been the toughest they had. In the beginning of the second half it was good for us. We created some good moments to kill the game.

"But they have a top striker who in one moment can kill us. The VAR goal (...) was tough for us and our fans. It was a decision, and maybe in some seconds before we should have made better decisions.

"I have no doubts that I don't have their [players] backing. No-one can say nothing about the attitude of my players. They showed a reaction for the last game."
