Few would have expected that in mid-November Liverpool’s closest challengers for the Premier League title would be Leicester City. The Foxes have been performing well above expectations this season and find themselves second in the table. In light of the club’s success on the pitch, City winger Demarai Gray has issues a bold warning to Liverpool.
Former Reds manager Brendan Rodgers has been doing a wonderful job at the King Power Stadium. The Irishman left Celtic to take over the Foxes in February of this year. Since then he has set about changing the fortunes of the recent Premier League champions.
Rodgers’ side currently find themselves second in the table, just eight points behind the current leaders Liverpool. Leicester’s impressive form has seen a typically Rodgers blend of direct attacks and fluid passing around the opposition area.
The Northern Irishman has also demonstrated his ability to get the best out of players. The ascension of centre back Caglar Soyuncu has been a joy to behold, the towering defender has been immense since the departure of Harry Maguire to Manchester United.
The Mirror have reported that Demarai Gray believes that the Foxes won’t let up this season. The winger said, “I think everyone will fear us now. We just want to stamp that down and give teams that impression that it’s never going to be easy against us.”

What RTK has to say
Back in September we predicted that Leicester City were nailed on for the top four this season and thus far we don’t look like we’ll be proved wrong.
The Foxes are looking sharp under Brendan Rodgers and Demarai Gray is right in saying that everybody will fear them, well – almost right. Liverpool won’t be scared in the slightest.
Whilst City gave us a good game when they came to Anfield, it would have been harsh on the Reds if we hadn’t come away from the game with all three points. When we head to the King Power on Boxing Day we will likely be going there as world champions. Who do we have to fear when we are kings of the world?
