Fuchs: Show What We're Made Of
- The Foxes face Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon
- City drew 1-1 at Old Trafford late last season in the game that ultimately saw them clinch the title
- Fuchs underlines just how tough a challenge Leicester City will have on their hnads against Jose Mourinho’s men
Old Trafford is the perfect place for Leicester City to show just what they are capable of on Saturday afternoon, according to Christian Fuchs.
The Foxes face off against Manchester United in the Premier League as they look to build on an impressive 3-0 victory at home to Burnley in their last league outing.
Claudio Ranieri’s men last visited Old Trafford during a 1-1 draw towards the end of last season – a result that eventually saw City win the league title after Tottenham’s draw with Chelsea the following day.
They also met in the Community Shield in August, when United emerged 2-1 winners and Fuchs is certain that Saturday’s meeting will prove to be another testing clash.
“It’s going to be a tough game,” he told LCFC TV. “For me personally last season it felt like our toughest game away from home, when we drew 1-1, but obviously it was the deciding game for winning the Premier League title.
“We’re looking forward to it and especially with it being at Old Trafford. It’s a good place to play your football and for us to show what we’re made of.
“Last season it was a tough game. They started well and didn’t give us time to breath. We went 1-0 down but luckily we scored the equaliser. We had the chances even to win and take away three points but in the end that secured the Championship so we were very happy.”
Fuchs knows that United possess the ability to cause any teams problems but has faith that the manager will have the right game plan to approach the fixture.
He added: “They have a lot of quality. With Zlatan Ibrahimovic they have a striker who can score from nothing, which he has shown.
“Jose Mourinho’s teams can never be underestimated and they always have a plan of how they want to play the game, so let’s see what Claudio comes up with. I’m very confident to go there and show a great performance.
“The games against Burnley and Brugge showed what we are made of and what quality we have. It felt like last season. We focused on our strength and we’re always good for one or two goals. We’re happy and we take that confidence to Manchester now.”
