Ranieri takes blame for Southampton draw

Claudio Ranieri admitted that he got his team selection wrong after Premier League champions Leicester City played out a goalless draw at home to Southampton.

The Italian made just one change from Tuesday's 1-0 win over Porto in the Champions League, while Southampton - who had gone with seven new faces - created the better chances at the King Power Stadium.

I have to think when we play every three days and maybe at the end of the 22 days it was much better to give some rest to some players.

Southampton played a couple of days after us but they changed seven players and I changed just one, it's not enough but I'm very happy with a point for this reason.

The international break is here but how many players will rest with me? Six? Seven? The others go for their international matches and then they come back two or three days before Chelsea. Then after that we have the Champions League [against Copenhagen]. I have to think about it.

I recognise Southampton played better than us and they deserved to win. We created some chances but they created more than us.

Kasper Schmeichel made two or three great saves, they hit the post and for us one point is OK.
