Liverpool great Aldridge: Leicester will be Champions League qualifiers

Liverpool great John Aldridge is backing Leicester City to finish in the top four this season.

Aldridge is convinced former Reds manager Brendan Rodgers will take the Foxes back into the elite competition.

Writing in the Sunday World, Aldridge declared: "I'm not sure whether Brendan Rodgers' side will finish third or fourth, but I fancy them to secure a Champions League finish this time.

"They were in a very similar position last season and blew up when football resumed behind closed doors last summer, so Rodgers will be hoping they have learned from that experience.

"Leicester are a decent side and they are well organised by Rodgers, with the nine-point advantage they have over Liverpool hard to close in the final 13 games of the season."
