Ghanaian defender Jeffrey Schlupp has revealed how Leicester City have been forced to switch tactics to overpower their adversaries in games ahead of their Premier League fixture against Rafael Benitez’s Newcastle United.
The Foxes have had a great run in the ongoing campaign and are currently top of the English Premier League log with five points.
Schlupp says Leicester City respect every opponent. However the Ghana international claims his side have improved as a team and approach games with a different mentality now.
Jeffrey Schlupp said:
“We’ve got to respect every opponent we play and of course we take each game as it comes. We respect them but we’ll be trying to beat them like we do in every game.
“I think a lot of teams have been coming to us and showing us a lot of respect. We’ve almost had to change the way we approach some games whereas before we played on the counter.
“Now we’re trying to dictate the play and work an opening. I think it just shows how far we’ve come with the team and the players we’ve got.
“It’s not just one game plan now – we can do it one way or the other. That just shows how far we’ve come.”
Jeffrey Schlupp recently returned from a long injury layoff and has made substitute appearances for Leicester City. The Black Stars defender will hope to get some more playing time under his belt when Leicester entertain Newcastle United at the King Power Stadium.
