Danny Drinkwater says excitement of local fans at Asia Trophy can impact upon Saturday's final against Liverpool

Danny Drinkwater says Leicester City can use the buzz of the Hong Kong fans to fuel a Premier League Asia Trophy final victory against Liverpool on Saturday.

“Pre-season is mainly about fitness but when you’re playing against Premier League opposition in particular, it’s always nice to get the win,” says Drinkwater, whose side progressed past the semi-finals via a penalty shoot-out win over West Bromwich Albion.

"We're in a final so hopefully we can bring the trophy home. The fans over here have a lot of energy. They're excited when they see the players and it's a good feeling."
