Simpson tells Leicester pals: Forget Atletico Madrid

Simpson tells Leicester pals: Forget Atletico Madrid

They could end this weekend back in the top half of the division, prior to a Champions League quarter-final trip to Atletico Madrid, thanks to the transformation Shakespeare has overseen with the same group of players that Ranieri had at his disposal.

One of the key components of Leicester's resurgence in recent weeks has been the form of star striker, Jamie Vardy.

Boss Ronald Koeman will need to reshuffle the pack with a string of injuries. "April is a busy month, we've got the Champions League as well which is exciting, but we'll keep going and hopefully we'll keep picking up the points like we do".

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Musa has made only 13 starts for Leicester all season, just seven of which have come in the Premier League. "Focus on Everton, not Madrid".

The Toffees manager was angry with the way his side failed to make the most of their opportunities when in advanced areas, which came back to bite them when United levelled late on, and he will seek an improvement against Leicester. We were a good team on the pitch but we were also a good team off it as well and Craig certainly played his part in that, there's no doubt.

Leicester City defender Robert Huth is looking forward to taking on Everton at Goodison Park as his side go in search of a club-record sixth consecutive top-flight win.

A new manager in the Premier League always gives us a chance to size them up, see what makes them tick and if they have any certain quirks that we should be aware of.

Craig Shakespeare could equal the Premier League record for winning his first six games in charge, held by Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti.

Everton beat Leicester 2-0 in December, but haven't done the league double over the Foxes since 1986-87.

"It is really good form at the moment - clean sheets and scoring goals".

Having replaced Claudio Ranieri in February, Shakespeare appears to have revitalised the squad with six wins from six matches.
