Former Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater is hoping to revive his dwindling career at English Championship side Reading.

The 31-year-old despite his prospects after winning the English top-flight title with the Foxes six years ago joined the lower league outfit having been frozen out of the Blues squad by successive managers.

Since his dream move to Stamford Bridge in 2017, Drinkwater has only featured for them 23 times, scoring one goal in the process.

Both Drinkwater and N'golo Kante were instrumental to Leicester's fairy tale Premier League triumph in the 2015-16 season but the former has failed to build on that success since he join the Blues.

What the former Leicester star said

"Can I paint a picture? No. It’s been a shambles. I need to [kick-start my career]. I’m more excited about this than I have been for a few years now, especially how my career’s panned out.
“Games, getting the enjoyment of football back, then going from there. A few have slid away, I’ve made mistakes, I’ve not played.

“I’m in the last year of my contract, so there’s more than just football riding on it. I’ve got other things. I’ve just got to keep in contact with the manager, trust each other and trust the team. Hopefully, they trust me and we can build on that."

Drinkwater was part of the Chelsea team that won the FA Cup title in the 2017-18 campaign.

Chelsea top EPL table after day five earlier reported that Chelsea, Manchester United, and Liverpool stretched their unbeaten run to five games in the Premier League so far this campaign.

All three teams have now won four games and drawn one as they currently have 13 points each as the table continues to take shape.

But, the Blues are the current table-toppers despite having the goals difference with the Merseyside outfit having scored 12 goals and conceded just one in their first five games.
