Boss Nigel Pearson is looking to Esteban Cambiasso to help his Leicester City side by passing on tips about how Jose Mourinho will set up visiting Chelsea
The two teams meet at the King Power Stadium on Wednesday evening, with the visitors looking to take another huge stride towards the Premier League title.
I would say it is very probable he will know Mourinho’s approach.
Meanwhile, the Foxes will be desperate to extend a run of four consecutive wins which has lifted them out of the bottom three and given them real hope of preserving their top-flight status for next season.
And City boss Pearson is keen to tap the knowledge of the vastly-experienced Cambiasso, who worked with Mourinho during his time at Inter Milan.
He told reporters: “I would say it is very probable he will know Mourinho’s approach. It will be discussed – of course it will.
“I think Jose will have a healthy respect for Esteban, but then I think he has a healthy respect for all his opponents and his preparation for games would be exceptionally thorough for every team they come up against.”
Leicester can be backed at 5.00 to win on Wednesday evening, with the draw 3.90, while the Foxes are 1.11 to beat the drop to the Championship come the end of the season.
Pearson also dismissed suggestions that the perceived negative approach by Chelsea in recent games will detract from what is set to be another league title success.
He added: “Any team that wins the Premier League are worthy champions. They are an exceptional side.”
