Winger Marc Albrighton has obviously been pleased with Leicester City’s most recent Premier League form as we’ve picked up back to back victories, but he knew we needed a sensible approach to the end of the campaign.

With the Champions League competition still a journey for us, Albrighton told the Leicester Mercury that everybody knew how much our Sevilla efforts had taken out of the team, so in an effort to continue our improved Premier League form we had to strike a better balance across games.

With four straight wins behind us across all competitions, April sees us face six matches in 18 days and Albrighton knows it will test us.

‘That (Sevilla) did take a lot out of us both physically and emotionally. But we have to be able to deal with that and take both of them. We have to do it all again in the quarter-final so we can’t afford any lapses. We have to continue to be ready for the next game.’

Albrighton went on to say.

‘We have a couple of Premier League games that have to be rearranged. We are going to have a few midweek games but we have to be ready and be on our toes. We have to stay fit and healthy for those games. It is in our hands now. The break is coming at a good time for us. The international lads have gone away and the rest of the lads will get a bit of time off to rest and recoup ready for the two home games. We will go into them with confidence and we know the King Power will be rocking for both of them. If we can get six points it would be fantastic.’

With victory over West Ham at the London Stadium seeing us register our first league away win of the year, he also knew that was huge for confidence as it finally removed the proverbial monkey off our back.

‘It is good to get that off our backs. A lot has been made of that but we went to West Ham with a lot of confidence from the midweek. We took the result against Sevilla into that win. In the first half I thought we were brilliant. The football we played and the chances we created were fantastic. We probably could have been more in front but the second half was a totally different game. We had to dig in deep and be resilient, and that is what we did.’
