This season the Foxes have struggled for consistency and languish in the bottom half of the table.
“I am only looking at Watford, that is the reality,” Rodgers explained.
“We are within touching distance of where we want to be, considering we have not had the most consistent start.
“If we are talking about the top six, we’re very close to that. I expect us to be challenging as the season goes on but you want to be in contention as early as you can.”
