The 21-year-old is hopeful Leicester City would pull through the list of tough fixtures piled up in the opening EPL stages

Ghana defender, Jeffrey Schlupp is hopeful Leicester City can stand the huge test that awaits them ahead of the start of the 2014/2015 English Premier League season.

The Blue Army who have just made a return to the top tier following an impressive run in the Championship last season.

But they have to contend with a stern test after being paired with top sides in their opening fixtures.

Nigel Pearson’s side will first play against Everton, before tackling Chelsea, Arsenal, Stoke City and Manchester United.

“All the teams in the Premier League are quality, but to have three of the top four in the first six games won’t be easy, but none of the games in the Premier League will be easy. 

 “It will be a good way to stamp our authority and show everyone else in the league what we can do by getting some points on the board hopefully,” Schlupp said.

Schlupp is bent on replicating last season’s form which helped Leicester to gain promotion to the EPL.
