Rodgers tries to rally Leicester City
Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers said his side must “embrace the challenge” of a daunting climax to their season after a 4-2 home drubbing by Newcastle United in the Premier League on Friday, which dented their hopes of a top-four finish, leaving them in third spot with 63 points, two above Chelsea and five above fifth-placed West Ham United, both of whom have a game in hand.
Leicester’s last three league games are against Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur. They also have an FA Cup final to prepare for against Chelsea. —
