The Foxes lost more ground on the Championship's top two with Saturday's 1-0 loss at The Den, leaving them five points behind second-placed Crystal Palace and a further two points adrift of league leaders Cardiff.

"We are still well in the shake-up," said Pearson, whose team are fifth in the table.

"It is very tight above us. I have a good handle on the perspective.

"It was a missed opportunity against Millwall but we are in and amongst it."

Leicester host Cardiff at the weekend before a Boxing Day trip to fourth-placed Hull, Pearson's former club.

The Foxes boss added: "We have two games coming up and, if we beat them, we can make a big impact because they are teams around us in the table."

I

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
