Brendan Rodgers has said that his Leicester City side have the ambition to be challenging in the higher part of the Premier League table this season.

After a promising start, which has seen the Foxes take nine points from a possible 12, Rodgers has played down his side’s chances of title run, with a repeat of last season’s achievement of gaining Europa League qualification a more realistic ambition.

The former Liverpool manager was keen to point out that there are many other clubs in the Premier League with bigger budgets and resources than theirs, but outlined finding “another way of trying to qualify”.

This hints at targeting cup competitions, as winning the FA Cup results in qualification to the Europa League, a competition that they begin next week.

Leicester were drawn in a group with Ukrainian side Zorya Luhansk, AEK Athens and Braga in their first appearance in the competition since it was rebranded from the UEFA Cup.

Should Leicester go all the way in that competition, it would mean a return to the Champions League for the first time since 2016, where they made the quarter finals before being eliminated by Atletico Madrid.
