Brendan Rodgers has urged Leicester supporters to show more faith in their team after many missed the last-gasp win over Everton.

A number of fans had already left the King Power Stadium by the time substitute Kelechi Iheanacho sealed the Foxes' 2-1 win in stoppage time, with the help of VAR.

Leicester face Watford on Wednesday aiming to strengthen their grip on second place in the Premier League, with the Hornets - Rodgers' first club as a boss - coached by Under-23 manager Hayden Mullins following the sacking of Quique Sanchez Flores.

Brendan Rodgers has urged Leicester supporters to show more faith in their team

Kelechi Iheanacho's last-gasp winner was missed by a number of fans who had left the ground

Rodgers said: 'My message to the supporters is "Don't leave early". I want them to stay. I know there can be a bit of a traffic queue getting out of here but this team is going to go right to the very end.

'At 1-1 they should never think this team is finished. The stamina and mentality is to go to the very end. I'm not sure if anyone left when we were 9-0 up at Southampton, but do not leave at 1-1.

Rodgers had thrown Iheanacho on as a late substitute in hope he could make a difference

'Whether we are at 9-0 or 1-1, we want [the fans] here. When I came here, there was [an issue] about the first 20 minutes and the last 20 minutes of games.

'Hopefully we've managed to go on a different road to that. Now look at the intensity and fitness in the team.' Mullins will be the third coach to have taken charge of Watford this term, even though the season is only 14 games old. 

Neither Javi Gracia, sacked in September, or Sanchez Flores were deemed capable of keeping Watford up by their owners, the Pozzo family.

Rodgers' fortunes have been far better since he moved to Leicester last February but he believes the riches available in the Premier League is making owners more fearful than ever of relegation.

Under Rodgers Leicester are seen as surprise contenders for the Premier League title

He added: 'There is so much money in the game that it frightens owners. Of course that means they make changes much more quickly.

'But from a manager's perspective everyone can recognise when there's stability and security in organisations. You won't have it all your own way - but if you can stay with that person and believe in them, it can turn out well.'
