Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has admitted that his side dropped two points in the Premier League title race by being held by Aston Villa this evening.
"Yes, we lost two points. We started very well and scored a goal but after the missed penalty the Aston Villa players took a new energy. If we score a second goal, we close the match," Ranieri told reporters.
"We are very sad but also I say to the players 'if we make the performance the result is not important'. The performance was good because we played well in the first half. It's one point, it's okay, it's a derby - but we are disappointed."
Leicester will drop back into second place should Arsenal avoid defeat against Stoke City on Sunday.
