How finishing fourth in Premier League may not guarantee Champions League spot

That means Tottenham, Man City, Liverpool and Arsenal, all in and around fourth place at the moment, could lose their Champions League reward if they finished fourth.

"Defensively, West Ham haven't really had a settled back four this season, so I think the likes of Jamie Vardy and Shinji Okazaki could cause them problems going forward".

West Ham soon got themselves a lifeline through a fine Manuel Lanzini free-kick, though Leicester re-established a two-goal lead late in the first half through Jamie Vardy.

"Still for me it was a bad decision, Claudio did very decently with them".

"I think we've got to just take it one game at a time, wait and see who we get, and then concentrate".

"I haven't banned talk of the Champions League but the players are focusing on West Ham and that's all the talk that's been today [Thursday]", he told a media conference. A disappointed manager after the defeat said, "The two missed penalties damaged us a lot..."

Leicester are unbeaten in five league and cup matches against West Ham, winning four of them.

On frustration from joint-chairman David Sullivan after losing 3-2 at Bournemouth: "It was a comment on that game, and I said also we can't be happy with the way we performed and how we conceded the three goals". Strikers live and die by their goals but the overall performance of forwards is vitally important. You can play and the opponent can beat you, but we were not there. They were eight points better off and had only been beaten twice at Upton Park at the same stage last season.

Leicester hung on however and secured their first away league win of this season.

Leicester's "belief, energy and confidence" has returned under the new manager, continues Cross, who says: "Those who staggered around before like drunks at kicking out time now stand tall again", but also laments their role in Ranieri's downfall.

Against Sevilla last night, the Leicester City that won the Premier League was on show, rather than the spineless outfit that looked like candidates for relegation earlier in the year.

Here is how hitmen Carroll and Vardy match-up so far this term in the Premier League...

The former Manchester United winger believes that there is only a handful of the world's very best players now plying their trade in the Premier League.

Leicester's title defense has been so pitiful that it has taken until March and a trip to the Olympic Stadium to finally win an away game in the league at its 14th attempt - but only thanks to the second-half saves from goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.
