London: Leicester manager Craig Shakespeare is confident his Champions League heroes will be able to win their battle for Premier League survival.

The Foxes head to West Ham today sitting just three points above the relegation zone and still waiting for their first away league win in 11 months.

Shakespeare doesn’t expect a hangover from the Champions League celebrations. “I haven’t found it a challenge so far and I can only go on what I have experienced. The talk straight after the game was to improve the away record,” he said. “I haven’t banned talk of the Champions League but after the game the focus, what I wanted, has been on West Ham. We’re professionals and the players know it’s my job to make sure the focus is there,” Shakespeare added.
