Leicester forward Ayoze Perez believes they are regaining their momentum after some disappointing results since the Premier League’s return from its enforced break.
Draws with Watford and Brighton were followed by defeat to Chelsea at home in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup.
Brendan Rodgers’ side also lost 2-1 at Everton after a sluggish start at Goodison Park but a confidence-boosting 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace on Saturday has offered fresh hope of securing Champions League qualification.
“It was important, especially at home,” Perez said of the Palace win at the King Power Stadium.
“There were a couple of games when we didn’t find our best performances, or the result either, so it was important to get the three points.
“Our schedule is not easy but with this [positive] mentality, we can keep our position. We have another tough test on Tuesday [away to Arsenal] but we are ready for it.
“The team is getting better, it’s getting that confidence and it’s building that momentum back again.”
