- Emile Heskey, Gerry Taggart and Steve Walsh starred on City On The Sofa on Saturday
- The panel guided the Blue Army through Leicester City’s 3-0 Premier League win over Crystal Palace
- Jamie Vardy scored his 100th Premier League goal against the Eagles
Concentrate on moving forward
Jamie Vardy's brace took him to 101 Premier League goals for the Foxes.
Emile Heskey said: “It’s lifted a lot of weight off their shoulders. Since football came back, Leicester haven’t scored many goals, but to get that win and that three points, now we can just concentrate on going forward. Going into the next game, we’ve got Arsenal away, but you’re going to a team who’s under pressure.”
A strong dressing room
Jamie Vardy & Kasper Schmeichel
Long-serving Foxes, Vardy and Schmeichel, celebrate City's success over the Eagles.
Gerry Taggart said: “What it shows, first and foremost, what a strong dressing room there is, because of the frustration more than anything. You take the Brighton game aside, everyone expected Leicester to win that game, but the other games, the performances have been decent. Today, it was complete and utter control from start to finish. That will only breed confidence.”
Playing with freedom
The Nigerian scored an important opener against Palace at the start of the second half.
Steve Walsh: “As a professional footballer, that’s how you look at things. You have to gear yourself up for the next game and get yourself rested. It’s difficult playing three games in a week. Leicester have to keep going now. It’s a tricky game at Arsenal, but we’re in a good position in the table and we’ll go there with freedom.”
Leicester can be confident
The Belgium international put in an impressive shift at King Power Stadium.
Emile Heskey said: “Going into the next game, Leicester can be confident. Jamie Vardy has got his 100th Premier League goal and the team have got the win they wanted. It’s a good time going into these next few games, starting with Arsenal on Tuesday.”
No fear for the Foxes
Brendan Rodgers' side head to Arsenal on Tuesday for their next Premier League fixture.
Gerry Taggart said: “There will be no fear going to Arsenal. When they’re on the back foot, they don’t know how to react and that’s what Leicester haver to focus on. Let’s see how they react with our style of football. If they do that, then they’re more than capable of getting a result.”
Barnes has what it takes
Harvey Barnes came off the bench to register two assists for his boyhood club.
Steve Walsh said: “It shows that the manager can identify weaknesses in the opposition team. In the last couple of games, Harvey [Barnes] just wasn’t at the top of his game. He’s got what it takes, has Harvey, and he’s still learning the game, so it’s onwards and upwards for him at the moment.”
