Burnley v Leicester City - Nigel Pearson's view
Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson said it did not matter how they won at Turf Moor, it was just vital that City got the three points against Burnley.
City claimed only their second win in seven games.
Pearson pointed out that his team had not been winning enough close contests.
The City manager admitted his side were not on top form in what was a scrappy encounter, but said it was important to get back to winning ways.

"We were disappointed we didn't manage the ball very well in the first half, but, I suppose, one of the things we have not done particularly well this season is to win tight, scruffy games. We have done that today.
"We were in a bit more control and created a few more opportunities in the second half, but it is about winning at the moment.
"We have had a tough spell, where when we have played well, things haven't gone our way, and we haven't always created enough chances. That has affected the confidence of the players, but this was all about the three points.
"It didn't matter how we did it. It is good to finish the year on a decent note."
City opted for the same 4-2-3-1 system they utilised at Hull on Boxing Day, but Pearson admitted his experiment with Anthony Knockaert playing behind Nugent as the lone striker hadn't worked.
However, he was delighted with Nugent's performance against Burnley.
"David would be the first to admit he prefers playing in a 4-4-2," said Pearson.
"We have played that for the majority of the time but today we tried to get Anthony Knockaert in a position that would suit him.
"Unfortunately, it didn't quite work out how we would have liked."
