Carragher warns Leicester boss Rodgers: You won't want such a reputation

Arsenal have been linked with a host of names since sacking Emery, with Massimiliano Allegri, Mauricio Pochettino, Mikel Arteta and Nuno Espirito Santo have all been tipped with the job.

The forward has, however, maintained his readiness to continue with the Foxes and hopes to get more playing time under manager Brendan Rodgers. "It's all hypothetical - all these types of situations", he confessed.

"I think the position Brendan Rodgers is in, there's no doubt if you're a player or a manager you want to get right to the top", he told Sky Sports. Alisson pulled off a good couple of saves so I think we were in the game all the way whereas the recent Norwich game we weren't in the game so much.

"Most manager's contracts will have something in but my focus is here". Logic looks at it and I repeat: I'm very very happy here. Everything's been great since we've worked together. The objective was very clear in that I wanted to help this club move forward out of where it was when I came in, and looking to lead it forward with a group I feel has huge potential.

They were moments away from taking a point 12 months ago until Pickford spilled Virgil van Dijk's weak, looping shot into the path of Divock Origi, who turned the ball into the empty net for a dramatic win.

While Rodgers insisted he was "excited" to be at Leicester, he did not exactly shut down talk of a move to Arsenal, who sacked Unai Emery on Friday, admitting there was a "release clause" in his contract if one of the big boys came knocking.

Leicester are ahead of Manchester City and Chelsea FC in the Premier League title race, while the Foxes narrowed Liverpool FC's lead to eight points after their 2-1 win over Everton on Sunday. It's part and parcel of the job now.

"[The speculation] doesn't annoy me". "It seems now you'll be talking about a lot of managers losing their jobs all the time and looking to be replaced".

"Names will get thrown in left, right and centre".
