  Jameson Rodgers and Sarah Allison Turner Are Married! All the Details from Their Weekend Wedding "I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with Sarah," the country star tells PEOPLECountry singers Jameson Rodgers and Sarah Allison Turner tied the knot at The Venue at Birchwood in Spring Hill, Tennessee on Sunday, Sept. 5, PEOPLE confirms exclusively.

Brendan Rodgers needed Ademola Lookman to make an impact when he sent him on at half-time against Brighton & Hove Albion and the winger did exactly that. Rodgers has been reluctant to play two out -and- out wingers in his side, preferring to have inverted wide players on each side of the main striker. Usually, that task on the right is given to Ayoze Perez but on this occasion, James Maddison started in that position. Maddison simply couldn’t get into the game though, and had only 19 touches of the ball in the first half, the lowest of any Leicester player who played 45 minutes or more.

Wilfred Ndidi and Ademola Lookman thought they were on target for Leicester City against Brighton & Hove Albion , but VAR ruled those opportunities as offside. However, the Foxes reduced their deficit a minute after the hour mark as Jamie Vardy turned in an assist from Youri Tielemans. That goal fuelled the attacking intent of the King Power Stadium giants as they swamped Brighton ’ s backline in numbers. In the 67th minute, Lookman thought he had leveled matters from Ryan Bertrand’ s corner kick, but VAR ruled that out as Harvey Barnes – who was in an offside position - was adjudged to

Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers has lauded “outstanding” Ademola Lookman for his display in Sunday’s 2-1 defeat against Brighton & Hove Albion, claiming his “cleverness and brightness” was good.

With the reigning English FA Cup champions trailing by a lone goal at the Falmer Stadium, the former England youth international of Nigerian descent was introduced for James Maddison before the commencement of the second half.

His presence brought life into the Foxes’ attack as they created several scoring opportunities.

Although Leicester crumbled to their third league defeat of the 2021-22 campaign, the Northern Irishman was keen to praise the contribution of the former Everton star.

Wilfred Ndidi and Ademola Lookman were left disappointed by VAR’ s offside decisions as Leicester City lost 2-1 to Brighton & Hove Albion in Sunday’ s Premier League encounter. The duo thought they had scored for City but their potential goals ultimately didn’t count. The Seagulls have climbed to third in the English elite division log having claimed their first Premier League win over Brendan Rodgers ’ men . Heading into the fixture, Leicester had settled for a 2-2 draw against Napoli in Thursday’ s Europa League encounter. Even at that, they were aiming for a positive result having silenced Norwich City

'We have many outstanding coaches': Brendan Rodgers launches passionate defence of British managers and hints they are less favoured due to not being 'showmen' on the touchline. Leicester are flying in the Premier League and breathing down the neck of Manchester City . Leicester look the likeliest side to break the top six - or even the top four - but Rodgers knows they do not have the financial clout of the top two or Manchester United, while Chelsea will surely spend again once their transfer ban is lifted while last summer Arsenal committed to spend nearly £140million on transfers.

"Lookman was outstanding. He gave us exactly what we needed,” Rodgers told Leicester City website.

“He was playing inside, but coming wide and combining with Ricky. Just his cleverness and brightness in the game was so good. I was pleased with that.

"It’s just the case of Ade coming in and getting used to how we play and you can see, day on day, game on game, he’s starting to make an impact. He’s certainly one we’ll consider to start during the week."

Regardless of the loss, Rodgers picked some positives – especially the improved second-half performance and the impact made by the substitutes.

"I thought we actually started the game well, in terms of control," he continued.

"We had good positions on the field, without ever really threatening the goal, but I think we arrived into good areas and pushed them back.

Below-par Leicester miss out . Leicester City 1-2 Fulham - Foxes got what they deserved, says Rodgers . Brighton ' s injury-time equaliser against Liverpool and Tottenham' s goalless draw with Chelsea over the weekend gave Leicester the chance to keep pace at the top and put a disappointing display at Anfield behind them. However, a late flurry was not enough to undo the damage of an uninspiring first-half performance. Rodgers ' side had to wait until the 19th minute for their first attempts at goal, but Fofana lacked composure after he was fastest to react to Tielemans' sweetly hit volley

"That was the first 20-25 minutes, then I felt we started playing into areas where they would want us to go. We started to go central too early and they were able to break away from that. In the second half, we needed a little more penetration.

"We went back to putting an actual winger on Ade, who I thought was outstanding when he came into the game. Obviously, we gave away a free-kick, which we could defend better.

"That was early on in the second half, but from that moment on, we played with that personality that we need to see in the team and, by the end of the game, we were so unlucky to not pick up at least a point from it.

"The first goal knocked us. We didn’t quite find a rhythm so we addressed it at half-time and I felt, in the second half, we were so much better in the speed of our game, the balance of the team, and we should have got something.”

While they had the opportunity to take the lead in the Premier League if they win, Seagulls have missed the boat on Monday on the lawn of Crystal Palace (1-1). In a fairly balanced encounter, both teams have long run out of ideas before Wilfried Zaha will come break the deadlock before the break from the penalty spot (1-0, 45th).
