Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has called on his players to show some steel after Sunday’s 4-1 Premier League defeat by Bournemouth.


Fourth-placed Leicester, who host Sheffield United on Thursday, have won just once in six league games since the season’s restart.


“It’s not a happy changing room and it shouldn’t be, because that is not acceptable, to deliver that level, especially when you work so well,” Rodgers told the club’s website.


“The Sheffield game will be a great challenge for us because we need to show a greater level of physicality and mentality. That’ll be a really good test.
