“In the end we created more chances than Leicester, but they won because they were more determined than us and that is frustrating,” said Ranieri, 70. “If we’d been more determined we’d have scored more of the chances.
“We did well in the match because we pulled it back to 1-1 and then 3-2, but we didn’t manage to take control. We must be more focused at points in games because we conceded four times and we know we can do better.
“I am half-satisfied today because I know some things weren’t so good, but I have only been working with the squad for a month and a half and other aspects were pleasing. I am positive because of the amount of chances we created, we just have to be more aggressive.”
Heavy snowfall during the fixture impacted visibility in the Midlands while brooms were required to clear the pitch in the second half, yet Ranieri dismissed any suggestion that the conditions might have played their part in the Golden Boys’ loss.
