The Foxes defeated Scunthorpe United, Cheltenham Town, Cambridge United, Stoke City and Atalanta to head into next Sunday's clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers unbeaten.

Fuchs, who registered assists for Kelechi Iheanacho and Jamie Vardy in pre-season, says Brendan Rodgers' men are looking forward to returning to Premier League duties.

Asked on LCFC TV about the sense of confidence in the camp, Fuchs said: "It’s a great winning mentality, a great habit that we have developed through pre-season... the games were great.

"We developed a good way of playing football and against Wolves at the home stadium with that crowd, I hope the stadium will be packed, I’m pretty sure about that.

A Good Test At The Right Time, Says Fuchs

Christian Fuchs caught up with LCFC TV to discuss the new season following Friday's win over Atalanta.

"You can see how great our fans are. The stadium was half full [vs. Atalanta] but it felt like a full arena so we're very happy with that and we're looking forward to the game.

"[We're] very ready, nobody likes to be in pre-season, you know what I’m talking about, right? So we are buzzing and can’t wait for the season to start.

"Obviously that is what we are working for the last five weeks or so now so we can’t wait to get going."

Late on during Friday's 2-1 victory over Atalanta at King Power Stadium, the 33-year-old appeared to have added another stunning goal to his collection.

However, despite the ball flying into the bottom corner from outside the area, the linesman's flag was raised, due to defender Jonny Evans being placed in an offside position.

Fuchs had no complaints with the decision, but went on to continue explaining the degree of Leicester's enthusiasm ahead of the new campaign.

"Obviously I would have been more happy if Jonny wasn’t in my way when I scored the goal!" he joked.

"Jonny is obviously interfering but he didn’t see the ball, I didn’t get the impression that he saw the ball at all. That’s why I don’t think he [the goalkeeper] would have got there if Jonny was not there.

"It's offside. you’ve got to live with that, that’s the rule, but it was a great test against a proper side, they’re playing Champions League next season. It was a good test just at the right time.

"We know there are still some bits and pieces that we need to improve on but we have a week until the first game and we are very confident."
