Nigel Pearson: Leicester have lost five of their last nine matches

A defeat by Midlands rivals Derby County on Saturday evening means the Foxes have now lost five of their last nine matches to sink to sixth in the table.

Leicester have lost momentum at a crucial stage of the season to consequently go from challenging for the title to not being certain of a place in the play-offs.

And Pearson said in the Daily Star: "I don't know whether my position is in jeopardy. But I'm a scrapper.

"I would hope I will be in a job if Leicester don't reach the play-offs. But I don't think this is a question I can really answer.

"My focus will be trying to achieve the next win and hopefully that will be the next game.

"There has been speculation. It is an unfortunate part of management that you have to be prepared to deal with that. I have to keep the focus on the job."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

eing consistently and unrelentingly dog turd really takes it out of you. Try shadow boxing. That's what it's like watching Liverpool, punching thin air.

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
