Zak Whitbread (r): Happy with Leicester's transition

The Foxes have adapted a 3-5-2 system this season instead of the standard flat back four they played last term. But Whitbread is confident they can reap the rewards and insisted Sunday's goalless draw with Leeds reinforced the point.

"We've done plenty of work on it," he told the Leicester Mercury. "A new system will always take time to get accustomed to but I think the lads have taken to it well, the understanding has been there and I think we've made the transition quite well.

"I think not being beaten is the biggest positive. In any game you don't win, you don't want to get beat, and a clean sheet to go with that is something we will settle for. "We limited Leeds to few chances and, over the past couple of games, we have looked reasonably solid. It will get better as it goes on."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
