Foxes of Leicester explains how the Leicester City team upset manager Brendan Rodgers, despite being 3-0 up in the first-half of Thursday’s Premier League match against West Bromwich Albion.

Towards the halfway point of the initial part the game, Brendan Rodgers’ men really showed what they are capable of: three goals from a variety of positions in the space of 13 minutes ended any slim chance of West Brom mounting a comeback.

Jamie Vardy, Jonny Evans and then Kelechi Iheanacho made the difference for the Foxes in less than a 15 min section for Leicester. Yet before that barrage from this new two-pronged attack, the forwards and midfielders were already causing mayhem for an out of sorts or lacklustre Baggies side.

Regardless of all the fine play springing from the centre-back double pivot of Caglar Soyuncu and Wesley Fofana with Evans spraying near-perfect passes to either side with both feet, a midfield making promising and positive moves, as well as his front line finishing goals, Rodgers was not completely satisfied with the first 45.

Why the Leicester City boss was unhappy before the half

I noticed the usual few misplaced passes from the otherwise exceptional Wilfred Ndidi. A couple of wild Kasper Schmeichel kicks; in addition to a lack of control from Iheanacho in his typically slower start to games – before he takes them over!

But generally, as the King Power outfit ran away with the lead, there were only positive elements to write about. During the second half, the east Midlanders managed the fixture expertly.

Nevertheless, following the final whistle, the gaffer said misplaced Foxes passes irritated him. In Fact, Rodgers was so annoyed that he kicked over a bunch of water bottles on the sideline after a Youri Tielemans ball was intercepted. This will come to a surprise to some of the Blue Army who see the manager as a zenic personality.

"“I was annoyed at half-time to be honest… there were too many loose passes, simple mistakes where we needed to be more precise.“(Kicking the water bottles) nearly broke my ankle! My right foot has never been the strongest. I’m always looking for perfection, and I know you can never get it but you have to strive.”– Brendan RodgersVia Leicester Mercury"
