Leicester City coach Brendan Rodgers has urged his team to use their final two Premier League games as an opportunity to work on their tactics for next season.

The Foxes can still finish seventh in the top flight this season after they followed up the draw with West Ham with a 3-0 success over Arsenal. Leicester dominated proceedings against Arsenal at King Power Stadium, but his team still had to work hard in defence as the Gunners tried to counter them.

Rodgers’ men have to face Manchester City and Chelsea in their final two games and the former Celtic boss is hoping to learn more about his team over the 180 minutes.

He told the club’s official website: “I wanted to come in and finish as high as we possibly could. I said to the players that we really need to focus on the performance [against Arsenal], and don’t worry about winning, losing or drawing – just work on how we play.

“This is an important period for us to bed in all the concepts. Everything I would want for the team, we were good at. There was a spell in the second half where we respected Arsenal with their players and quality and they had a little bit of the ball, even with 10 men.

“There are elements in that period that we can get better in managing it. We’ll finish as high as we can.”

Leicester will travel to the Etihad Stadium on Monday night and the reigning champions are 1.15 to grab all three points, with the draw 8.50, while Rodgers’ troops are 17.00 to grab all three points.
