    Rodgers stated: “The fate is with us so we will choose where we finish, and for us the focus and the concentration is simply simply on the game itself.

    ” I have actually stated to the players that if we are to find a focus, if you think about the Champions League or what else is at stake then you have actually lost your focus.

    “You’ve got to focus on your performance and your game, how you’re going to play and how you’re going to work and the consequences of that.”

    Leicester’s slow return from the coronavirus lockdown, combined with a rise in form for both Chelsea and Manchester United, has actually seen the Foxes drop to 4th location– simply a point clear of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men.

    However Rodgers thinks Jamie Vardy’s late equaliser at the Emirates Arena might show the driver for a modification in fortune which can assist his side protected another memorable achievement.

    “I can’t talk about what the other teams will do,” addedRodgers “If we do it I will talk about it for sure, however up until that point there will be other techniques for inspiration.

    ” In football things can rapidly alter. Clearly Man United are on a very great run, and Chelsea have actually been on a great run although they lost their way at West Ham.

    “Now it’s down to the next game and that’s all you can concentrate on. I think for us, we’re in this brilliant position and we want to maximise that, and we’ll start that process on Sunday.”

    Leicester are still without Ben Chilwell and James Maddison for the game as they fight to brush off foot and hip injuries respectively.
