Leicester City are currently second in the Premier League six points clear of third-placed Manchester City.

The Foxes beat Aston Villa 4-1 on the road on Sunday to close the gap with league leaders Liverpool to eight points.

The Reds are undefeated in the league this season but Leicester currently have the best defensive record thanks in part to the efforts of Caglar Soyuncu who has started every game this term.

Leicester have conceded just 10 goals in the league keeping an impressive seven clean sheets. They also have the best goal difference in the Premiership (29).

Soyuncu has made 10 blocks, 24 interceptions, won 21 tackles and made 87 clearances this term which is statistically higher than Liverpool ace Virgil van Dijk.

The Turkey international was in impressive form yet again over the weekend against Villa and had this to say following the away win.
