Leicester City ace Ben Chilwell says his team are still motivated to secure a top-ten finish as they prepare to face Arsenal on Sunday afternoon.

The Foxes enjoyed a superb March as they won four games in a row leading into the start of April, but Brendan Rodgers’ men have now not won for two matches.

A defeat to Newcastle United was followed up by a draw with West Ham United and Leicester now sit 10th as a result. They can still finish seventh, but results need to go their way and Rodgers is now planning for life without European football.

Leicester have a difficult few fixtures on the horizon, with Manchester City and Chelsea up after Sunday’s meeting with the Gunners.

Chilwell claims nobody is ‘on the beach’ at the King Power Stadium and he is determined to help his team pull off a few shock victories. He told Sky Sports: “There’s loads still to play for.

Throughout the whole season, the thought has been in the back of our heads to try to finish seventh and, while the last three games we have now are all difficult, we are definitely within reach.

“And we can drop down a lot of places if we don’t perform. So there’s no feeling of the end of the season for us, or maybe thinking about holidays. We know how important these games are.”

Leicester are 2.70 to grab all three points this weekend, while the draw is 3.50. Arsenal are 2.60 to win as they try to end their losing run after defeats to Crystal Palace and Wolves in the last seven days.
