Alistair Bruce-Ball and Chris Sutton took on fan calls on another episode of BBC’s 5 Live 606 podcast and discussed Leicester City’s chances of maintaining their top-four spot.
Indeed, just like they were a couple of years ago when they shook the footballing world by winning the Premier League, Leicester are once again impressing amongst the English elite and, while the idea of adding to their 2016/16 title is out of reach, qualification for the Champions League looks a realistic possibility.
Of course, catching Liverpool seems all but impossible even after the Reds’ recent loss to Watford but Bruce-Ball firmly believes that the Foxes have it in them to secure a top-four finish despite a slight dip in form.
Here’s what he said for BBC’s 5 Live 606 podcast (29/2/2020) when talking to a Leicester fan about their team: “I think they’ve got good players, good squad. I think you’ll be okay. You have Champions League football next season. I’m saying they’re finishing top-four based on how well they played when I’ve watched them this season. They’ll be back.”
It is true, however, that Rodgers’ team has been struggling to get results as of late as only one win in the last six games across all competitions suggests. Still, even with that bad run of form, they are still sitting five points ahead of the fourth-placed Chelsea and their chances of finishing in the Champions League spots are still very much alive.
Who would you rather have in their prime?
