Brendan Rodgers' men sealed a 3-3 draw at SC Braga on Thursday, enough for qualification in the UEFA Europa League.

Brendan Rodgers on City's prospects this season: "I'm just really enjoying seeing the players adapt and work to the Premier League's intensity and then going into Europe and looking to perform in European competition. Apart from that, our thinking really is just about developing the players, the tactical idea, the mindset, and to show that: can we consistently be up challenging at the top end of the table?"

Scott Parker is looking to preserve Fulham's status in the Premier League this term.

Scott Parker told fulhamfc.com: "They’re a very good side. Brendan [Rodgers] has done a fantastic job there. They’ve got a lot of quality in their ranks and it will be a tough game for us. Another tough game. We understand that, but as always, these are the challenges that we embrace this year. It’s a challenge that we look forward to. This is why we worked as hard and as relentlessly as we did last year to get out of the Championship, to play in these sorts of games every week."

Academy graduate Harvey Barnes scored for the Foxes in Portugal.

Harvey Barnes reflecting on Leicester's start to 2020/21: "We know it’s going to be a tough game. At home, it’s going to be down to us to take the game to them. You’ve seen they’ve had a tough start to the season, so they’re going to be desperate to get a result against us. For us, it’s going to be in our own hands to go and create that, and take that attacking game to them to go and score the goals."

Ruben Loftus-Cheek has made five appearances for the west London outfit this season.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek, on loan from Chelsea this season, speaking to FFCtv earlier this week: "We’ve got an underlying confidence that we will soon start to get wins. Now it’s just a process of tweaking things, because the foundation is there. We play some really good football, and I think we just need to kind of piece everything together to get the results. We don't know what to expect (from Leicester) but we have to expect they'll come out the blocks flying."
