James Looks Ahead To Everton

James Looks Ahead To Everton

Midfielder and Young Player of the Year winner Matty James has looked ahead to our pre season friendly against Everton and admitted that he doesn't expect the game to offer much up in terms of an insight for our Premier League opener against them in August.

Speaking to lcfc.com as we build towards the friendly in Bangkok on July 27, James said that he expected the game to be worlds apart from what our league encounter will be when we face them at the Supachalasai National Stadium.

'First of all it's a really great fixture to have going into any season, whether we were playing Everton on the opening day or not. That's because you're up against some top class international players that will push you all the way. It's always a great indicator to see where you're at in terms of the level you're playing and you're fitness.'

James goes on to say that obviously in training now our attention has moved more on to this match, and he knows that irrespective of the result there will be things from the game that Leicester can take from the game, even down to confidence from finding out whether we are ahead of them in terms of fitness levels, but also the game can tell us where we have fallen short so far, and in those areas it can spur the players on to improve and do better, so ultimately come the start of the season we are in the best shape possible in all areas.

'Sometimes in these games you see teams experimenting with their personnel or formation, so you never quite know what to expect. I'll certainly be paying attention to what they do though, because at this level it's important to take any advantage you can. That can work both ways though. I might find it useful to get an idea of what it's like to play in midfield against their players, but I'm sure they'll be looking out for things we do as well.'
