Brendan Rodgers details Leicester’s plan on beating Chelsea and Tottenham to top four place

Brendan Rodgers has laid out how his team will be approaching the rest of the season, as they battle for a top four spot with the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester United.

Sheffield United and Wolves are also in the hunt to try and secure Champions League football, with just six points between Chelsea in fourth and Nuno Espirito Santo’s side in ninth.

Leicester are eight points clear of Frank Lampard’s team with 13 games remaining this season.

While his team may be understandably excited about the prospect of playing in Europe’s top competition next season, Rodgers maintains that they will not be changing anything with three months remaining.

“There are still 39 points to play for, which is a lot,” Rodgers told reporters.

“We don’t want to change. We can’t be thinking about being in the top four. We just need to concentrate on the next game. We want to be the best we can be.

“We finished ninth in the previous two seasons. We find ourselves in the top four and deservedly so.

“Can we sustain that?

“You have to find your own way [to challenge the big teams] because you know you don’t have the resources.

“We all have a clear way of working and our own identity. You have to have honest players, who have spirit.”

The Foxes return to Premier League action on Friday night following their two-week break, and have back-to-back games against Wolves and Manchester City.

These two fixtures could prove pivotal in the race for the top four, with the likes of Chelsea, Spurs and Manchester United all hoping that the Foxes will be dropping points.
