Leicester players have been given the week off ahead of the Premier League title run-in.
The Foxes are currently two points clear of Arsenal at the top of the table heading into the final 12 games of the season.
Having been eliminated from the FA Cup, Leicester do not have another game until March 1 and the players asked manager Claudio Ranieri to give them a break if they picked up maximum points from the games against Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal.
Although they went down 2-1 to Arsenal, Ranieri has decided to give them a holiday to ensure they are fresh for the final push.
"We make a little gamble with my players and they say to me, "If we make nine points will you give us one week away?" Ranieri said.
"Now we make just six points but in my mind I said, 'ok, I was happy with one point from City and one point today - only two points - and we achieved three'.
"I said 'ok, it's the same as if you won the match. Go home and we will see you next Monday.'
"They deserve it. They made a fantastic performance. I don't know where they will go, Dubai maybe? They go wherever they want. I will have one day in London - and then I go to Rome."
