Having only lost one of their last nine EPL fixtures, the high flying Foxes currently occupy third place in the table, which is a testament to their brilliant form.
Tactically flexible and very adaptable, Rodgers coaches the team brilliantly to adjust to different systems depending on the opponent. Indeed, these tailored game plans have ensured valuable wins over some excellent teams such as Manchester City, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal and Southampton.

Always supremely well organised and structured on both sides of the ball, this has seen some maintain possession well, press effectively and know when to drop back into a compact shape. Cohesive and all on the same page, Rodgers and his coaching staff are clearly doing exceptional work with the players on the training ground.
The Foxes deserve plenty of credit for smartly constructing their squad too, for they possess a nice blend of youth and experience.
Having some hugely exciting players under the age of 25 such as James Maddison, Wilfred Ndidi, Youri Tielemans, Wesley Fofana, Harvey Barnes, James Justin, Caglar Soyuncu and Cengiz Under has given the side plenty of excitement and energy. Meanwhile, the more experienced members of the squad like Jamie Vardy, Marc Albrighton, Kasper Schmeichel, Christian Fuchs, Jonny Evans, Ricardo Pereira, Ayoze Perez and Nampalys Mendy have been vital in terms of adding consistency, quality and leadership.
It’s been incredible how good they’ve been away from home too, for they rank second in the league having taken 26 points from 11 away trips. Indeed, winning eight of their 11 matches on the road is in stark contrast to their home form, where they’ve only won five of 11.
After missing out on the top four with a last day loss against Manchester United last season, it’s been amazing how well they’ve responded to that setback. Currently sitting third on the table and right on track for a coveted Champions League spot, they’re certainly in the driving seat to achieve their aim of qualifying for Europe’s elite club competition.
Doing so would be a fitting reward for their fantastic form and all their excellent work over the last couple of crusades.
