Leicester City defender Danny Simpson is adamant the club’s fans will stay loyal to the team as they try to come through a difficult period of the campaign.

The Foxes have started to slide down the table after three defeats in their last four Premier League games.

They were also knocked out of the FA Cup by League Two Newport County this month and the pressure is on boss Claude Puel to turn his team’s fortunes around.

Leicester are not in action until January 30 when they travel to Anfield and Simpson is expecting the fans to stay loyal to the squad.

Some sections of the fanbase have started to turn against Puel but Simpson is confident his team can deliver the goods to change their mood.

He told the Leicester Mercury: “I am sure the fans will stay with us. “They always have and always will, through good and bad runs. They know we always try to give them that belief and they believe in us. I think we show that time and again.

“Never give up on us against any team in this league. “We have a tough run now of games but we are Leicester and we know what we can do against anyone. We look forward now and we can show what we can do against these teams.

“The fact of the matter is we don’t want to lose games. We are just as gutted as anyone and it is down to us to put it right, and I believe we can. “We have proved it before and we have to prove it again.”

Liverpool are 1.22 favourites for next week’s meeting, while the draw is 6.00 and Leicester are priced at odds of 15.00.
