It was my fault, I didn't start him - Brendan Rodgers

It was my fault, I didn't start him -  Brendan Rodgers, Hamza Choudhury
Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has praised the performance of Hamza Choudhury after the England International helped his side grab a draw against Aston Villa.

Choudhury came on as a substitute at the start of the second half for Leicester City and he immediately grew into the game and was able to give his side more depth in midfield.

His high pressing helped Leicester in the 74th minute to grab an equalizer as he dispossessed Douglas Luiz off the ball before Jemie Vardy passed it to another Substituted Kelechi Iheanacho to slot in a wonderful volley.

Brendan Rodgers has now praised the England International and claimed it was his fault he didn't start England man.

'He made a huge difference - my fault I didn't start him,' said Rodgers

'We could see that we needed him.'

It was critical for us. Hamza instigates our pressing in midfield.'

'We've had Wilfred Ndidi [who was injured in training] in there who's colossal for us. I didn't put that type of player in there, but when Hamza came into the game, he was brilliant for us.'
