Leicester City’s next 24 hours will tell us a lot about their recruiting power for next season.

Manager Brendan Rodgers says they need a lot, regardless.

[ PREVIEW: Leicester City – Man United ]

The Foxes will qualify for the Champions League with a win over Manchester United or a draw and a Chelsea loss to Wolves.

Anything else puts Leicester in the Europa League and completes a tailspin from the Foxes’ third-place slot with a healthy lead over fourth — let alone fifth — for most of the season.

From the BBC:

“There’ll be disappointment if we don’t make it,” Rodgers said Saturday. “But that would whet the appetite for next season. We were in a good position but you’ve got to sustain it. It also shows you the big improvements this team still has to make. We dropped points and we need to be better in that. Next year our mentality is one of the areas that needs to improve to sustain the run.”

Of course Leicester can use improvement but is Rodgers really that far away?

They’ll need better depth for Europe but the tail end of this slide has come with playmaker James Maddison injured for much of it and Caglar Soyuncu, Roberto Pereira, and Ben Chilwell also missing at times.

Really it just feels like the Foxes have mangled the first part of the second half of their season whether through tactics, personnel, or simply performance, and have been very unfortunate with injuries since Project Restart began in earnest.
