Brendan Rodgers says it will be a “big ask” for Leicester City to finish in a Champions League spot – despite continuing their strong start to the season with a thumping win over Newcastle.
Jamie Vardy scored twice as Leicester demonstrated potential to secure a top-four finish by recording their biggest Premier League win to move back up to third in the table.
The 2015-16 champions are three points clear of both Chelsea and Tottenham, who finished third and fourth respectively last season.
Yet Rodgers played down his side’s chances of finishing in the top four, and said: » It’s very early in the season.
» “We know it’s a big ask because of all the other clubs that have been regulars there. We are only really focusing on how we play, looking at our performance levels.”
