That was the best we have played - Barnsley manager David Flitcroft

Barnsley manager David Flitcroft said his side "dominated" Leicester City in their 2-0 victory yesterday.

City got off to the worst possible start when Michael Keane put the ball into his own net in the third minute before Chris O'Grady doubled his side's lead just before half-time.

It could well have been more for the home side as Flitcroft's men had two goals disallowed as well as having a penalty saved by Kasper Schmeichel.

The victory sees Barnsley jump out of the relegation zone, while City remain in seventh.

Flitcroft said it was the best performance his side has given in his time as manager.

"I wouldn't have been embarrassed coming in here having beaten Leicester 5-0," he said.

"Our movement, the intricacy, the precision passing, wow, I wish people would have been watching that on television because they were brilliant.

"We could have been talking about five or six goals – that's how much we dominated Leicester.

"That was relentless – they couldn't play. We swarmed them and we swamped them but then we moved the ball that well, they couldn't get anywhere near us."

Flitcroft said it was great to see his side play such good football against a "quality" side.

"It's an honour to be a manager on a day like this," he said.

"You look at their side and they are a top team. They have ridiculous quality – Nugent, Knockaert. They are players that I want to watch.

"As a manager, when you see them on the television, right through the team, they are wonderful players. We didn't allow them to play but our football was just exhilarating.

"These top teams want to play you, they have got great players. We are talking about a Leicester team with outstanding individuals."
