Leicester City

Mendy - Foxes working on issues

29th January 2019, 18:21 by Jack Ogalbe

Nampalys Mendy says Leicester are focused on learning from their past mistakes as they prepare for Wednesday's trip to Liverpool.

The Foxes have endured a mixed campaign, always seemingly steady in mid-table but unable to put a run of results together.

While Claude Puel's men have thrived against the big teams, beating both Chelsea and Manchester City over Christmas, they have often failed to pick up points against those in and around them.

Losing to League Two Newport in the third round of the FA Cup meant Leicester had last weekend off to prepare for the game at Anfield, where they will be aiming to cause another shock.

Mendy appears settled at the King Power Stadium after injury hampered his first season after signing from Nice in 2016, featuring in 21 of the club's 23 league games this term.

The 26-year-old is confident his side will have benefitted from their time off and is looking forward to going up against the Premier League leaders.

He told the club's website: "It is good to have a little break because I think we need it for our minds. The last three or four games were not easy.

"That is our problem this season. We have a desire to correct this every time in training and we must correct this problem.

"We play together and we have to fight together and, yes, the Premier League is very difficult because every weekend we play against a tough team. It is a good challenge to get a good result at Liverpool."
