Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson says he has no concerns regarding his future at the King Power Stadium despite a disappointing run of results.

Surprisingly, the 5-3 home victory over Manchester United back in September has seemed to have sparked a downturn in fortunes for the East Midlands outfit, who have now only avoided defeat once in their last six games.

Having been seventh after that win over United, the Foxes now find themselves in the bottom three with just nine points from 11 games in the Premier League.

Despite the disappointing run of results, with a 2-0 defeat to Southampton their most recent loss, Pearson believes his position at Leicester is still safe as he looks to get the club back up the table.

He told BBC Radio Leicester: “I find it quite irritating that every time we have a setback it’s always about a manager’s position.
“It’s ludicrous really but that’s the industry we work in. I will continue to do my job in the way I always do it.

“And that is to be as thorough and prepare the players as best we can and make sure that if they are having a tough time and doubting themselves, I will do everything I can to instil the belief in them to get a win in the next game.”

That next game will be against fellow strugglers Sunderland at the King Power Stadium on November 22, with the Foxes 2.27 to claim all three points and the Black Cats 2.97 to secure the victory after the international break.
