Mason Mount’s strike in the win at Fulham on Saturday eased some of the pressure which had been mounting on Frank Lampard after a run of four defeats in six league games.
But this evening’s clash at the King Power looks a crucial one as the race for European qualification hots up, with the season reaching the halfway point.
For Leicester though, the incentive is even greater, with Sunday’s draw between Manchester United and Liverpool meaning they can go top with victory.
