Foxes can stay up - James

London - Leicester City midfielder Matty James insists the rock-bottom Foxes still have cause for hope in their survival bid.

James believes Pearson's team can take heart from results going their way over the weekend - one in which they took an enforced break due to scheduled opponents Chelsea's participation in the League Cup final against Tottenham Hotspur.

They remain just four points adrift of safety and could also benefit from being fresher than their opponents, who have lost to Barcelona and Liverpool since the Foxes drew at Everton a week ago last Sunday.

"The good thing for us is we are not playing badly," James said.

"We are creating chances, we are scoring goals. If we can get that change of luck and get that right result in one game, it would set us up nicely for the next one.

"We have a tough game next at Manchester City but we have had a long break to recover and get ready for that and go again.

"You always look at the other results and think, 'what if?', but ultimately we have to win our games and get points from our games.

"We took a point at Everton, which is a tough place to go and play, so we will take the positives from that."

Manchester City host Leicester City at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday at 21:45.
