Leicester must find the formula to get back to winning ways, knowing that defeat against Legia Warsaw on Thursday night will leave them bottom of the group and on the brink of an exit from the Europa League.
The Foxes are without a win in four, while their Polish opponents have lost nine of the last 11 – just two wins in that run, one of which came against Leicester back in September.
A heavy defeat to Chelsea at the weekend leaves the Foxes well outside the European spots for next season so a strong showing in this year’s competition is of paramount importance, especially if they want a return to continental competitions next term.
Brendan Rodgers has been linked with the Manchester United job but the Leicester players are not getting distracted by the talk of a potential exit, says Ayoze Perez.
