Schmeichel on Europe
Leicester City vice-captain Kasper Schmeichel said that the experience of European nights has been the club’s aim for the past few seasons, but there is one thing missing from it this season.
City are in action against Greek side AEK Athens tonight in their second European game of the campaign, after a 3-0 win over Zorya Luhansk last week.
“It’s been a while since our last European excursion and we’ve definitely missed it,” Schmeichel said ahead of the game against Athens.
These are the nights we’ve been working towards.
“It’s a shame we’ve no fans here because that would be the icing on the cake, but such are the circumstances.”

Rodgers on squad rotation
City manager Brendan Rodgers has hinted that there could be some changes to the lineup for the game against Athens but has said that there won’t be wholesale changes to the team.
“There’s no doubt that for all of the teams playing in Europe and the Premier League, it’s a hectic schedule,” Rodgers said at his press conference at the Olympic Stadium.
“There’s no way on Earth you can think that 11 players can get through every single game and play to the level you want. We pick 11 we believe can get the result.”

Dewsbury Hall impresses
Leicester City academy graduate Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall was in action for loan club Luton Town against Nottingham Forest last night.
The game ended in a 1-1 draw, despite Forest going down to 10 men before the half-time whistle.
And it seems that Dewsbury-Hall made a positive impression on Hatters fans.

Arteta makes Leicester claim
Full story here.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has insisted that the way Leicester set up against his Gunners team was a positive sign to the way his team is perceived.
City came away from the Emirates Stadium with all three points on Sunday thanks to Jamie Vardy’s 80th-minute winner.
Rodgers named a back five for the game, in a similar manner to how he did against Man City earlier in the month.
And Arteta has taken that as a compliment to his side.
“When Leicester comes to your house and acts like this it’s because they really respect you and they are concerned,” he said.
