Leicester City find themselves in third position behind Liverpool and Manchester City. How can the Foxes secure a top-four finish?

Along with being in the top-three, surpassing their aim for the campaign presently, Leicester City are still in both cup competitions. These are of course things to be extremely grateful for. But supporters, staff and the owner can and should definitely strive to improve towards perfection.

There are certain areas in the usual Foxes starting line-up where refinement is necessary. In certain parts of the XI, transfers would also increase the proficiency of the team. Foxes of Leicester have written about three aspects of Brendan Rodgers’ side in that sense, beginning below.

Left-back – improvement

Before we start, let it be known that Ben Chilwell is a seemingly great guy, a fine asset at Leicester and a player who got so much better so quickly that he made the King Power club’s left-back position his own. Additionally becoming England’s first choice in that spot, as FoL sees it.

That being said, Chilwell honestly hasn’t replicated his own consistency in form from last season in this. A modern full-back must be a constant threat going forward – this term Chilwell rarely has been. His statistics in that area being: 20 games with three assists and one finish.

Now, the Three Lions defender only managed four goal involvements in 2018/19. Though his overall imagination and confidence, as well as key passing was more defined and efficient.

Defensively the 23-year-old is still performing at a satisfactory level; whilst determination and positioning can still increase as attributes.

Therefore he’s still the right man for the job in our opinion: however, development and enhancement is necessary – or Christian Fuchs or the versatile James Justin may take Chilwell’s place temporarily.
