Brendan Rodgers has all but ruled himself out of the running to become Arsenal's manager next by saying that he is very happy at Leicester and has no need to "look elsewhere". We work together in training and we've been playing together, so everyone knows everybody. Why would Rodgers pass that up mid-season to try and turn Arsenal around?

The Foxes host bottom side Watford on Wednesday, where Rodgers will be hoping to have the points wrapped up earlier on than usual.

The likes of Adrian Mariappa and Craig Cathcart will have to be on top form to silence Vardy and Leicester, then.

But, there were concerns among Emirates chiefs that his personality wouldn't be an ideal match for the club.

The Northern Irishman increased the speculation over his future with his comments after Leicester's 2-1 win over Everton on Sunday.

However, now he is someone who people are taking very seriously and the work he is doing at Leicester speaks for itself.

"The club has been first class with me".

City enjoyed 77 percent of possession against Newcastle and had 24 goal attempts but were not clinical - a theme that has developed this season, allowing Liverpool to pull clear. So my concentration is very much with Leicester. "I gave an honest answer, which was based around probably most managers have something in their contracts, and by all accounts that "opened the door" for something".

Justin, who can play at left-back or right-back, was named in the League One Team of the Year following his impressive displays at Luton last season which ended with promotion.

"It doesn't annoy me". He has got to look at the next 18 months and think he is going to do something with Leicester.

"It's not in my control. It can be true or not but it will not help Everton and I'm here always to protect the club and not to create problems".

Brendan Rodgers is one of the leading candidates for the Arsenal job.

The Nigerian had not played a single minute of Premier League football this season before being summoned from the bench just after the hour mark.
