Manchester City star: 'Football hasn't been fair to us'


A Manchester City star has claimed that 'football isn't fair to us' after the superclub were humiliated by Leicester City yesterday.


Jamie Vardy grabbed a hat-trick as the Foxes were awarded three penalties in the clash at the Etihad on Sunday.


Midfielder Rodri made the claim in a post-match chat with the BBC.


"For me, they were lucky," he said.


Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, the Spaniard added:


"Football has not been fair to us. Maybe it is our fault, maybe it is their strength - but it is very difficult to explain.


"We did a lot of good things to win the game. A team like Leicester comes here and plays with 11 guys behind the ball.


"I am young and try to learn every game, but games like this - where the opposition do nothing - you are a bit confused. It's not the way I like to play."




Leicester City's Jamie Vardy (centre) is brought down by Manchester City's Kyle Walker which results in a penalty kick during the Premier League match at the Etihad Stadium, Manchester.

City had actually taken the lead through a Riyad Mahrez strike early on.


Though they had most of the possession, Pep Guardiola's side had no real chances to double their lead.


When Vardy was chopped down by Kyle Walker towards the end of the first half, the England striker dusted himself down and fired past Ederson.


"We started to think we were playing badly when it was the opposite," said Guardiola.


"We told them at half-time to be patient. But sometimes we struggle with that.


''It's not about winning for 10 or 15 minutes. Sometimes you score early, sometimes you need more time.


"We wanted to be better in the box.''


The result left Man City 13th in the Premier League table.


Leicester lead the league with a 100% record so far.
