Nils-Eric Johansson believes Leicester have struck the correct balance between experience and youth this season in defence.

The 25 year old Swedish international has been an ever present so far and is loving life now.

‘We’ve been through something of a transitional period since I joined the club, but the whole team now seems to be finding its feet. You need to mix the young players with the older ones, and that is certainly the case at the back. For instance, we’ve got Dion Dublin at the centre of defence who is twice as old as Richard Stearman. Dion has a cool head while Richard is keen and enthusiastic.’
