Harry Winks scores Chelsea over Leicester City’s Premier League credentials

Harry Winks believes there is already evidence Leicester City have what it takes to survive in the Premier League.

After the holidays come the holidays, but in a few weeks, Enzo Maresca and the club will start preparing for the transfer window. Shortly after, fixtures will be released and the team will return to pre-season training.

Thoughts then turn to how City can stay in the Premier League. Maresca has already stressed that survival is the goal, with the club unable to think beyond that. That’s not just because of the points deduction they can start with, but also because of the jump in quality between the divisions.

This season, the three promoted clubs are on course for direct return. If not for Nottingham Forest’s points deduction, Luton and Burnley would be mathematically relegated by now, along with Sheffield United.

But Winks is confident. Not only do they have an abundance of top-flight experience in the squad, but the FA Cup run, which has seen them face two Premier League sides, gives the midfielder confidence that City also have the quality to hold their own.

“We played Bournemouth and won and drew with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge for a big time,” said Winks. “So with the manager – we have such an incredible manager – I think next year we’ll be fine.
