Leicester boss Nigel Pearson felt his side should not be downhearted after their 2-0 defeat at Chelsea.

The Foxes were level after an hour, but Diego Costa and Eden Hazard eventually found a way through to give Jose Mourinho's men the three points.

Pearson, whose side drew 2-2 against Everton on the opening weekend, told the media after the match: "The players are disappointed we were unable to convert an encouraging performance with the reward of points, but there are a lot of positives from today.

"The good thing is we created chances throughout the game and we wanted to be positive.

"For the most part, we played very well today, but as always it is going to be about how efficient you are in both penalty areas and we did not quite find the right way today."

Pearson, meanwhile, confirmed there was no further progress on a proposed transfer for Argentina midfielder Esteban Cambiasso, but wants to bring fresh faces in ahead of the September 1 deadline.

The Leicester manager said: "It is not that we have not been trying. It is clear we do need one or two more players, and we will endeavour to add to the squad."
