Hamza Choudhury has enjoyed his breakthrough season at Leicester City but insists there is still much that needs to improve ahead of the last two games of the Premier League campaign.

Choudhury made his third Premier League start in City’s defeat to West Ham, which extended the team’s winless run at home in the league to six games.

The 20-year-old’s emergence has been one of the brighter lights of this disappointing run, with the Loughborough lad now having made seven first-team appearances.

Choudhury could start again against Arsenal on Wednesday in the penultimate game of the season.

“I think we conceded two easy goals and we need to show more to bring ourselves back into the game,” said Choudhury. “I think we’ve got a lot to improve on and we’ve got two games to do it.

“We can put in better performances so I think we’re going to get back on the training ground to try and do that.

“Football is a funny game. You have your ups and downs but when you have a down, not too long after you can try and put it right. We’ll try and put it right on Wednesday.”

The 20-year-old also led City’s under-23s to the Premier League Cup semi-final, second in the Premier League 2 table, and was voted Development Squad player of the season.

“There’s been some massive achievements,” said Choudhury. “I’ve worked really hard through my whole life to try and achieve and thankfully I’ve done it this season thanks to the manager and the staff.”
