Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers said he is happy for his side to be left out of the Premier League title conversation after an eighth win on the bounce kept the Foxes second in the table.

Leicester thrashed Aston Villa 4-1 at Villa Park to move back within eight points of league leaders Liverpool, who beat Bournemouth a day earlier.

Rodgers, whose side are six points clear of last season's champions Manchester City, is happy for Leicester to keep going about their business under the radar.

"I don't think anybody expects us to be anywhere near the top," said Rodgers.

"After Manchester United won at Manchester City, a caption came up after the game about how far Manchester City are away from Liverpool.

"We respect that and we just get on with our job, get on with trying to play and improve our performance levels."
