Brendan Rodgers was pleased with his side's performance at Leicester City today but he left the Walkers Stadium ruing his team's poor set piece defending.
The Swans had strong spells of possession throughout the game, but yet again we can't create enough chances as one shot on target in the whole game was never going to be enough to get a decent result against the Foxes.
After Berner's early goal, Scott Sinclair fired in a scorcher from 25 yards to put the sides level, but Darius Vassell put the home side back in front just 2 minutes before half time.
Both their goals were thanks to our failure to deal with corners. Berner headed home and Vassell tapped in the rebound as de Vries could only parry Morrison's header.
'I thought we were the better side for 90 minutes,'
'I said to my players at half-time we had been outstanding apart from two critical moments from set-pieces.'
'A bitter pill to swallow'
'We are disappointed because we played well but we just didn't defend two corners well enough,'
'I'm bitterly disappointed. It was a game we could very easily have won but it was decided in areas where we're normally strong.
'Our performance was very good. We controlled large parts of the game. We made a poor start, got the game back, and scored a wonderful goal.
'But we switched off at set pieces and we must learn from it and make sure it does not happen again.
'At the beginning of the season we had a slight problem which we rectified but that has come back to haunt us.
'We felt our performance deemed something so to be getting on the bus home with nothing is a bitter pill to swallow.'
