It has been reported that Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson is throwing down the gauntlet to his players tonight.
Pearson has challenged his players to meet the contest of Liverpool – with the same swashbuckling style as they did against Manchester United earlier this season.
“We’re in a position we don’t want to be in,” the Leicester manager said. “There is a tendency to look at things too negatively but in isolation we’ve played well in games.
“We need to rectify it pretty sharpish, it’s a good game for us against Liverpool. It’s against a very big club who had a superb season last year.
“They’ve not replicated it so far but it’s still the type of fixture our players will be looking forward to. I hope we rise to another occasion like we did against Manchester United.”
