Ranieri: There is no pressure


Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri has brushed off suggestions the pressure is on his side heading into final seven games of the season.

A year on from avoiding relegation, the Foxes are closing in on a first-ever Premier League title as they sit five points clear of Tottenham at the top of the table.

With Tottenham due to play on Saturday, Leicester's gap at the top could be down to two points by the time they host Southampton on Sunday afternoon but Ranieri is adopting a relaxed approach the situation and is determined not to change his approach to games.

"There isn't pressure. Why pressure? That was at the beginning when we had to be safe. Now we enjoy it. We are on a good run. Everything is in our hands and we want to continue," he told reporters.

"Of course, this the biggest moment in the club's history, because never have Leicester been at this level at the end of the season - to fight for something that was unbelievable at the start.

"But we must go step-by-step, match-by-match. I will approach things in the same way. Enjoy it and fight, without charging the players over what we are doing over all the season.

"Now we have to fight. On Sunday, maybe will be five points clear, or maybe there will be three, two or one - but it's not important. It's just important to perform."
