Manager Brendan Rodgers says they need a lot, regardless.

[ PREVIEW: Leicester City – Man United ]

The Foxes will qualify for the Champions League with a win over Manchester United or a draw and a Chelsea loss to Wolves.

Anything else puts Leicester in the Europa League and completes a tailspin from the Foxes’ third-place slot with a healthy lead over fourth — let alone fifth — for most of the season.

  'It feels cruel': A British city goes back under lockdown, but its neighbors don't While the rest of England gingerly reopens, the city of Leicester has gone back into lockdown because of a troubling coronavirus infection rate.In Birmingham — Britain's second-most-populous city — you can go to the office.

From the BBC:

“There’ll be disappointment if we don’t make it,” Rodgers said Saturday. “But that would whet the appetite for next season. We were in a good position but you’ve got to sustain it. It also shows you the big improvements this team still has to make. We dropped points and we need to be better in that. Next year our mentality is one of the areas that needs to improve to sustain the run.”

Of course Leicester can use improvement but is Rodgers really that far away?

They’ll need better depth for Europe but the tail end of this slide has come with playmaker James Maddison injured for much of it and Caglar Soyuncu, Roberto Pereira, and Ben Chilwell also missing at times.

Really it just feels like the Foxes have mangled the first part of the second half of their season whether through tactics, personnel, or simply performance, and have been very unfortunate with injuries since Project Restart began in earnest.

Thibaut Courtois, Sergio Ramos, Marcelo Vieira, Toni Kroos, Nacho, Isco, Eden Hazard, Luka Modric posing for the camera: With soccer league in Europe returning, or having already returned, we figured this would be a good time to take a look at the top clubs on the continent. A lot of this is based on the time before leagues had to take a pause, of course, and in some countries the pause turned into straight-up cancellations. The teams from those leagues, including a certain French super club, are still eligible for this list of the top 25 soccer clubs in Europe.

Textiles industry faces scrutiny after Leicester outbreak .
Earlier this summer Leicester, in central England, and its thriving textiles industry found itself in the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. As the government was starting to ease coronavirus lockdown measures, the city of around 355,000 people became a COVID-19 hotspot, prompting officials to reimpose the social distancing regime. This in turn led to renewed allegations modern slavery is rampant in its textiles sector -- and that it had continued to operate at full capacity during the pandemic, fuelling the local spread of the virus. © Ben STANSALL Some dresses are sold for less than £4.
