Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson joked he might send Brendan Rodgers a text message ahead of Leicester’s game away to Manchester City on Monday night.
City haven’t dropped a single point in the Premier League since January and require just two more wins to stave off Liverpool and clinch their second consecutive title.
However, in Rodgers’ revitalised Leicester they are facing one of the top flight’s in-form teams.
The Foxes have lost only one of their last seven games and Jamie Vardy is the division’s joint-top scorer in 2019 with 12 goals, 11 of which have come in his last 11 appearances.
Youri Tielemans’ recent displays have earned him links with Manchester United and Pep Guardiola admitted in his press conference last week that he is not expecting an easy game for his side.
“Forget about it, I cannot imagine the Leicester players come here on their holidays,” Guardiola said. “I think there will be high pressing, good build-up, quality in the middle.
“They are going to attack. Leicester before were counter-attacking but I think Brendan has shown his incredible quality as a manager. In just two months they play the way he wants.”
Henderson knows the odds are stacked against Leicester at the Etihad and is hopeful rather than optimistic that they will pull off an upset.
“The lads will watch Monday’s game and, yeah, pray for a miracle,” Henderson said. “I’m sure Leicester, who are a great team, will go and give everything. Will I send Brendan a text? No. Well, maybe. I’ll think about it.
“City are a great team but so are we. Whoever gets the title will deserve it. We couldn’t have done any more. We can’t have any regrets.
“It’s going to the last game and we need to finish on a high at Anfield and pray that something, a miracle, can happen.”
