Youri Tielemans has urged his Leicester team-mates to remain positive as they prepare for some important fixtures.
Tielemans made his debut for the Foxes as they were beaten 3-1 by Tottenham at Wembley to leave them 12th in the table.
Davinson Sanchez opened the scoring for Tottenham in the 33rd minute before Christian Eriksen doubled their lead after the hour mark. Jamie Vardy got one back for the visitors with 14 minutes remaining but Son Heung-Min wrapped up the victory by netting in the 92st minute.
“I think we deserved more today, we created some good chances in the beginning and at the end also, but when we tried to push at 2-1, they made the third goal and it was over for us," Tielemans told LCFC TV.
Having exited the FA Cup in the third round, the Foxes do not play again until Saturday, 23 when they welcome Crystal Palace to the King Power Stadium, with Brighton the visitors just four days later.
Tielemans admits they will have to stay focused and must start taking their chances ahead of a vital run of games.
“We have to stay positive for the next games that are coming, I think we have a lot of points we can take in the next few games, so we have to stay focused for the next part of the season.
“I think the difference today was they took their chances and they scored directly. We didn’t, we could [have been] 2-0 up after 20 minutes, I think in the next games we have to finish our chances and then we’ll be fine.”
“I felt good today, I created some good chances and, with my team-mates, we made some good moves, so I’m happy about my debut but disappointed with the result… that’s more important.
“We’ve got two weeks to prepare for the next game and we’ll work hard to get three points in the next game and I’m really excited to play in front of our fans.”
