Christian Fuchs has said that this weekend’s trip to Old Trafford to face Manchester United is the perfect stage for Leicester City to show what they are made of.

Knowing that the tie will be an incredibly tough test, Fuchs is looking for further improvement in Leicester’s form this year, and he knows going back to back victories following Burnley would be a fantastic achievement.

Speaking to in his own pre game press conference, with the experience of the one all draw last year, and this summer’s Community Shield defeat, Fuchs knows it should be a good but tough match.

‘It`s going to be a tough game. For me personally last season it felt like our toughest game away from home, when we drew 1-1, but obviously it was the deciding game for winning the Premier League title. We`re looking forward to it and especially with it being at Old Trafford. It`s a good place to play your football and for us to show what we`re made of. Last season it was a tough game. They started well and didn`t give us time to breath. We went 1-0 down but luckily we scored the equaliser. We had the chances even to win and take away three points but in the end that secured the Championship so we were very happy.’

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic now in their squad, he knows that will be an added test to face as well – but equally we more than carry our own threats.

‘They have a lot of quality. With Zlatan Ibrahimovic they have a striker who can score from nothing, which he has shown. Jose Mourinho`s teams can never be underestimated and they always have a plan of how they want to play the game, so let`s see what Claudio comes up with. I`m very confident to go there and show a great performance. The games against Burnley and Brugge showed what we are made of and what quality we have. It felt like last season. We focused on our strength and we`re always good for one or two goals. We`re happy and we take that confidence to Manchester now.’
