Leicester full-back Ricardo Pereira says his side need to be more consistent if they are to climb the Premier League table.
The Foxes claimed back-to-back wins over champions Manchester City and top-four hopefuls Chelsea over the Christmas period but have managed just one win in eight games since in all competitions.
Pereira says Leicester need to learn to replicate the kind of performances they put in against City and the Stamford Bridge club when they come up against sides they should be expected to beat, if they are to enjoy a successful campaign.
“It’s been a little bit irregular,” he told LCFC.com. “We’ve had good games and we’ve had bad games. We had good games that we lost, and we had some bad games that we won. It’s a long season and we need to be more regular, more consistent.
“It will make the difference in some games. If we can’t win, we can’t lose, like against Wolves for example. We have to be more mature. With the games, we will start learning that and improving that.
“We know every game here, it’s difficult, sometimes we play against first or second and we won, and we play against the last and we’ve lost. It’s difficult to explain, sometimes there’s a lot of circumstances in the game with players whether it’s home or away.”
Leicester take on Crystal Palace in the Premier League and are 2.25 to secure the win, while Pereira is 8.00 to score at anytime.
