Leicester City midfielder Matty James believes his side have proven they belong in the Premier League, and is backing City to survive, reports BBC
The newly-promoted Foxes started the Premier League campaign in blistering form, winning two and drawing two of their first five games against sides such as Everton, Arsenal, Stoke City and Manchester United. But since the 5-3 win over United, Leicester have lost four and drawn one of their following five league outings.
“We don’t look out of place. We have been a little unlucky at times, and in certain games we have managed the games wrong but we are learning from it. The expectations might have been raised because of the start we had and the result we had against Manchester United,” said the 23-year-old.
“The key thing for the players and staff is to survive. We have to up our performances and turn things around. It’s fine margins. There have been one or two individual errors and we have not taken our chances at the other end. We have to make sure when we do get an opportunity we take it and then defend better.”
