Tielemans: "The consecutive defeats at Leicester have affected us"

Youri Tielemans says things are "difficult" for the team since Leicester is at the bottom of the Premier League.

The Foxes

have only one point after their first seven Premier League games, and their current losing streak is six.

Brendan Rodgers

is under more pressure after recent losses on the road to


(5-2) and Tottenham (6-2).

Tielemans's attention has shifted to making Belgium's World Cup roster for this winter in Qatar, but the


midfielder admits that the team's terrible domestic play is weighing on his mind while he's away.

"I'm happy to get a bit of fresh air here [with Belgium] because it's tough at Leicester right now,"

 the midfielder declared in a press conference in Belgium. The club's situation is obviously deteriorating. As a group, we are making every effort possible.

"At Leicester, the consecutive defeats have affected us as a group. We need to benefit from this break to recharge our batteries. It's hard to get it off my mind as it keeps running through my head. Only my kids sometimes prevent me from thinking about it."

The Gunners

, who are now first in the Premier League, were reportedly interested in signing the 25-year-old Tielemans, but their interest cooled later in the summer. The Belgian midfielder has decided to finish out the season with Leicester even though his contract expires at the end of the year. Despite the team's dismal league standing, Tielemans says he has no regrets about his decision to remain.

"I'm not going to speak too much about my contract situation at the moment," he added. "I didn't leave Leicester in the summer as I always said the project had to be the right one. Just because things are getting worse now at Leicester doesn't mean I should regret [staying]."
