Ahead of Leicester City’s final-day match against Manchester United, Foxes’ boss Brendan Rodgers says that he knows the Red Devils are under more pressure to secure a Champions League spot, due to the financial rewards that come with it.

Ahead of the meeting, the two sides are separated by just one point, with the Foxes lying fifth and the Red Devils third.

Rodgers said [via Goal]: “There is a difference where we want to be in the Champions League. But when you’re a club like Manchester United, there’s a need to be in the Champions League.

“We want to be in it. But if we fall short, it’s still been a really good season.

“We are playing one of the superpowers of world football with a chance to go above them and get into the Champions League. We have one last shot, and that tells you how well the players have done.”

The Foxes have been constant in the top four since September, but a poor run of form since the restart last month has led to Rodgers’ side dropping to fifth following a 3-0 defeat by Tottenham Hotspur in their penultimate game.
