Wilfred Ndidi has urged Leicester to focus during their Champions League chase.

The Foxes host Crystal Palace on Monday as they look to return to the Champions League for the first time in four years.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are third in the Premier League after Thursday’s 3-0 win over West Brom and have also reached the FA Cup final.

They missed out on the top four on the final day of last season and Ndidi wants no distractions.

He said: “It (the West Brom win) has gone now, so we just look forward to the next one. Crystal Palace is the next one.

“It’s just another final for us, I would say, because every game now until the end of the season is very strong and teams are really looking for the points, so we won’t relax. We’ll just try and give our best and do our thing.”

Kelechi Iheanacho has 13 goals in his last 13 games after scoring in the win over Albion and Ndidi praised his Nigeria international team-mate.

“He just can’t stop scoring at the moment, so I’m very happy for him,” the midfielder told the club’s official site. “I’m very proud. I just want him to keep doing the things and keep scoring to help the team, so it is good for us.

“The gaffer also speaks to us about being confident with the ball and being confident about our play.

“It’s just one of those things where you, as a player, you just need to believe in yourself and I see it in him now. He really believes in himself now and the confidence is there.”
