With Liverpool and Manchester City far above their rivals, the race for the two remaining Champions League tickets is expected to gown the wire and Ndidi has challenged his team-mates to give their all in the remaining games.

“It is not about what we have done in past matches.These eight games remaining, it is important for us to actually fight hard and pick the Champions League ticket.
“It is something we have to work for, we have to stay there. If we do our best and get the points, then we will get there.”
Leicester City will look to boost their top four hopes when they host Brighton&Hove Albion at the King Power Stadium later today.
