Emile Heskey explains what will be key for Leicester to sneak Champions League spot this season
- The Foxes are fourth in the Premier League after 8 games.
- Heskey believes they can capitalise on the poor form of United and Tottenham and get into top 4.
- The ex-Striker claims the key for Rodgers' side will be consistency vs lower league teams.
"Leicester have a great chance to capitalise on the poor form of teams like United and Tottenham and could sneak a Champions League spot. I think Rodgers would at least be looking at top eight, but he’ll definitely be thinking top eight is possible.
"The key thing for Leicester is consistency. It’s not about their performances against the current top six, it is about winning their games against everyone else.
"If they only drop points to the top six, then they’ll be right up there come the end of the season. If they lose silly points against lower league opposition, then they’ll struggle to be a real threat."
