first_imgNigel Pearson believes he can lead Leicester City to a Harry Houdini-like great escape despite his side suffering another Premier League defeat.A 2-0 loss at West Ham leaves the Foxes bottom of the pile at Christmas, which is likely to mean a relegation dogfight come May.Goals from Andy Carroll and Stewart Downing ensured the Midlands club remain winless since their memorable 5-3 victory over Manchester United in September, stretching their losing run to five straight games.But the under-fire boss believes his side aren’t far away from turning their form around and climbing up the league.He said: “I have been involved in a situation at West Brom, and of course it is possible [to stay up].“I believe that we do have good players here and we are not a million miles away and I think that is the most frustrating thing.“I have spoken to people in the game, and they all say we are playing well, but ultimately we need to turn decent performances into better results.”last_img
