Danny Drinkwater: Still confident Leicester can catch Cardiff

The Foxes, still second in the table after defeats for Watford and Crystal Palace this week, can start to eat into the Bluebirds' 10-point lead when they host struggling Wolves on Thursday night.

Victory for Leicester at the King Power Stadium would put the pressure on their rivals ahead of their matches at the weekend, and Drinkwater

said: "It's massively important that we do that.

"We've got ourselves into a good position and we need to stay there. If we can get another three points on Thursday night then it could be massive.

"It would move us closer to Cardiff and put a bit of breathing space between us and the other sides in the chasing pack. Then we can enjoy the weekend off and watch how everyone else gets on.

"I can't see why we can't catch Cardiff. There are still 18 games to go and we've still got them to play. It is a weird league and anything can happen."

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.
