Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has warned his charges over the risk of being overconfident this season following their 4-2 win against Burnley.

Harvey Barnes opened the scoreline for the Foxes followed by an own goal (OG) by Erik Pieters but in the end, it was goals from James Justin and Dennis Praet that that put a damper on Burnley’s two goals.

“It’s only two games. After 10 games you start to get an idea of where the league is at,” Rodgers said.

“We’re not even thinking about that (a sustained challenge). We’re looking to develop the team and the experiences of last season, both in the league and the cup, will really enrich us.

“Whatever way it finished last season we still had a fantastic season to finish where we did.

“It (starting well) was always going to be important because there can be a hangover if you don’t address it, but we spoke about it in our short pre-season period and felt ready to move on.

“The players have a good motivation, they’ve scored seven goals in two games and it shows we’re ready to attack the season again.”
