Nigeria international, Wilfred Ndidi, a constant feature in the Leicester City team, was present throughout the two-nil victory match against Arsenal, which took Leicester City to second place in the English Premiership table.
Ndidi almost opened scoring when his left footed shot from the centre box hit the bar four minutes into the second half.
The Nigerian almost made it 3-0 when his left footed shot from outside the box missed to the right 9-minutes to the end of regulation time.
Jamie Vardy finally broke the deadlock as he finished off an excellent team move, firing in his 11th goal of the season after Harvey Barnes and Youri Tielemans cut open the Arsenal defence.
James Maddison then made sure there was no way back for Arsenal with a low strike through Héctor Bellerin’s legs and into the back of the net.
Victory means Leicester move above Manchester City and Chelsea with 26 points from 12 games, five behind leaders Liverpool but nine clear of fifth-placed Sheffield United.
“We are thinking about the development of the team and making them better and if we can bring European football here in my time, that would be great,” said Rodgers.
“We have thrown a hand grenade right into the middle of it all. We are working very, very well. We will just concentrate on our performance levels until 10 games to go and assess it then.
“I came here to make an impact and create something that we can hopefully sustain over a number of years.”
Arsenal, meanwhile, are now eight points off the top four and are without a win in the Premier League since beating Bournemouth 1-0 on 6 October.
