​Rodgers insists Leicester still in title race

Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers insists the Premier League title race is far from over with still more than half the season to go.

Leicester travel to current champions Manchester City on Saturday knowing that a win would cut the gap to league leaders Liverpool to seven points ahead of their Boxing Day clash at the King Power Stadium.

"At the beginning of the season nobody really expected us to be in the position that we're in," he said.

"However, for us, we have a belief in our work and how we work. The players have been absolutely first class throughout the season and this is another opportunity for us.

"We're not even at the halfway point [of the season]. There is still so much football to play.

"People will look at it at this stage of the season and try and say that Liverpool have maybe won the title and Manchester City won't, or will Leicester do it again?

"It is still so early. You have just got to approach each game, be really focused and looked to bring the best quality game that you can."
