Vicente Iborra and Wilfred Ndidi have both been speaking ahead of Leicester City’s clash with West Bromwich Albion later this evening.

With five points returned from our opening seven Premier League games this season, Iborra told that he was confident more results would go our way in the future given our mixed start to the season.

‘I think that it`s very important for us to win the games at our stadium with our fans. If we win the games at home, I think that we will hit our objectives at the end of the season. The atmosphere at King Power Stadium against Liverpool was very nice. I`m happy to play in our stadium and win against a very important team like Liverpool. I enjoyed the game a lot.’

He went on to say.

‘I want to continue to play minutes with the team now in the Premier League in the next game. It`s a very important game for us and I`ll try to help the team win the game and climb the table. It`s very important for us to train and work every day with tranquility and confidence. West Brom is a very strong team, as are all the teams, but the most important thing is us. If we play well, 100 per cent, with the help of our fans, we can win the game. In football, the most important thing is the result. If we win, all the players and staff are happy and the work is better.’

Sidelined at the beginning of the season with a groin problem, Iborra also explained that he’s now fully recovered and looking forward to plenty more match time.

‘It was good for me to rest and recover. Now, I can start at 100 per cent. I`m very good – I`ve played and trained normally over the last few weeks so my feeling is very good. My feelings are positive because now, I`m 100 per cent recovered from my groin problem and my fitness is very good. I think that I can improve a lot and I want to improve a lot. I`m working hard in training to improve and to help the team.’

As for Ndidi, he called on Leicester to start a winning run with three home games out of the next four across all competitions.

‘The game against West Brom, I`m looking forward to it. It will be a good game because we really need the three points, not just a point. We need to do everything we need to do to get the points. Every team wants to win. We will take everything as it comes. Not just their name and where they are in the league. The main thing is about us – we will just focus on ourselves. I feel this is the time to take our opportunity, with the fans around – the atmosphere will be brilliant. It`s an opportunity for us to get as many points as we can and we`ll see where we can be in the table.’

With nine games under his belt and boosted by his involvement in the successful Nigerian World Cup qualifying campaign, the 20 year old went on to say.

‘I feel sharp and I feel relaxed and I`m okay. I`m good to do. I just try to do my thing – this is what I have to do and I just want to do it. So many people want this opportunity and they don`t get it. For me, I see this as an opportunity to play and I just want to play.’
