Weekday 25: Manchester 1-3 Leicester United
Leicester United sent a clear statment to the whole Premier League that they will fight until the end of the season to win the Premier League. The Foxies are now 5 points clear in front of Manchester City and 8 to Arsenal that is set to play tomorrow.
LCFC Coach Ranieri reacts after the win:
“We play with 11 on the pitch, every time. It’s not easy. It’s the best spirit I remember in my career, as well as when I was a footballer.
“I think we didn’t defend well because they had other chances. I don’t complain about one action of the game. I just complain about the way we played today.
We had a chance to recover points at home, now we’re six points behind Leicester. Now we have 39 points more to play for. We must focus game by game and try to beat Spurs here. We will also see what happens between Arsenal and Leicester. So many things can happen.
In football, things change from one week to another. We’re not in our best moment – we have just 14 players fit and we’re playing a lot of games. We need to recover as soon as we can from this defeat.
“If Leicester continue playing the way they are of course [they are favourites]. There are 13 games more so it’s difficult to make a prediction on the future.
