Liam Moore: Leicester must learn to scrap for Premier League points

Leicester's defeat at Crystal Palace showed they need to learn the art of 'winning ugly', according to Liam Moore.

Two second-half goals from set-pieces gave Palace victory from a scrappy game at Selhurst Park as Leicester failed to match last week's winning performance against Manchester United.

And defender Moore has warned City their Premier League fate depends on picking up points on off days.

"After such a good result last week you always want to build on that and we didn't," he said.

"Whatever division you play in, and any league in the world actually, if you concede two goals from set-pieces it is going to be disappointing and it is always going to be hard to get back from there.

"Both teams were a bit too cautious at times and it did not look like pretty football but it is all about trying to grind results out which Crystal Palace did.

"Maybe we need to learn how to win ugly, we got a lot of praise for the way we played against Manchester United but it is days like this that we need to get something from.

"We have all worked very hard in training, like any other week. We just haven't got the result we wanted and they were bad set-pieces to concede from but that is what has happened and we just need to forget about it."
