Former Leicester manager Nigel Pearson says he thinks the club can finish in the top four of the Premier League.
The Foxes sacked Pearson and appointed Claudio Ranieri in the summer, then embarked on a run that saw them top the table at Christmas.
They are currently seven points clear of fifth place, with the top four earning a spot in the Champions League.
"The first half of the season shows they are capable," Pearson, 52, told BBC Radio 5 live's Sportsweek.
"I don't see any reason why they can't [stay in the top four]. I think we've seen enough results this year to suggest the sides who have been promoted are doing well and the big guns are not having it their own way."
