Leicester midfielder Danny Drinkwater says that he is confident the squad can finally start to get their season on track after struggling for consistency this term.

Leicester, who are priced at 11.00 to be relegated, shocked everyone by winning the Premier League last season, however, results have been much harder to come by this term.

The Foxes currently sit 14th and just four points clear of the bottom three as they prepare to travel away to face Stoke on Saturday in search of a first away league win of 2016-17.

Drinkwater has been missing for the last four-games after receiving a three game ban before sustaining a minor knee injury, which forced him out of Tuesday’s defeat to Bournemouth.

The England international admitted that the club’s form has not been good enough this campaign but insists they are more than capable of putting it right over the busy Christmas period.

Drinkwater said: “The league form in general has been a bit up and down and it’s something that we are trying to put right and climb the league.

“The gaffer has a good mentality here of when the game is gone, you just prepare for the next one and that’s what we’re doing.

“We don’t want to be where we are in the league. We’re working hard as a team, and that’s the staff included, to put it right.

We know what we’ve got in the dressing room and we know what we’re capable of – everyone saw it last year.”
