Brendan Rodgers has pledged his full attention to Leicester after being asked about his interest in the vacant Arsenal job following the 2-1 home win over Everton that cemented second place in the Premier League for the Foxes on Sunday.

Only reigning champions Manchester City and Rodgers' former club Liverpool, who are eight points clear at the top of the table, have picked up more Premier League points than Leicester since Rodgers joined them from Celtic on February 26.

The comeback win over the Toffees, sealed by a 94th-minute Kelechi Iheanacho goal after Jamie Vardy had replied to Richarlison's early opener, was Leicester's sixth successive win, enhancing Rodgers' reputation as one of the top flight's brightest coaches.

The run of form that has sent Leicester three points above City is certain to intensify speculation that Rodgers could be on the radar of other clubs including Arsenal, who came from behind twice to scrape a 2-2 draw at Norwich in their first match since the sacking of Unai Emery on Friday. 

Asked by Sky Sports if there was a clause in his contract allowing him to leave Leicester should an interested club meet its conditions, Rodgers replied: 'Listen, there probably is in most managers' contracts.

'All these types of situations are hypothetical. We've had a brilliant win today - we came back really well.
