Leicester defender James Justin insists they must learn to cope with the demanding schedule after going top of the Premier League.

The Foxes lead going into the international break following Sunday’s 1-0 win over Wolves and Liverpool’s 1-1 draw at Manchester City.

Jamie Vardy’s first-half penalty – his ninth goal of the season – secured a sixth straight win in all competitions.

Leicester have nine games in 28 days when they return – starting against Liverpool – but Justin is aware of what is ahead.

“It does take a toll on you after a while, but we get what we signed up for, really, and we knew how hard it was going to be this season,” he told the club’s official site.

“We’re using the squad to full effect. Physically, we’re in a good place
“It’s an amazing run for us and hopefully we can rest and recover in this international break and come back fresh.

“We had to try and get through that somehow, and it was just the runs in behind that we kept on pushing and pushing, and we got the two penalties. We converted one, and that was enough for the game.

“We’ve shown this season that we react well to adversity and we showed that in the second half, where we had to dig in.”
