Ranieri wants angry Foxes

Manager demands response from team

Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri wants his players to get angry following their last minute defeat to title rivals Arsenal in their last league outing.

The Foxes went down to a stoppage time winner from fit-again Danny Welbeck at the Emirates Stadium on February 14th to throw the title race wide open once again and the Italian is hoping for a strong reaction from his team when they host Norwich at the weekend.

"I told my players it will be a big battle on Saturday. It will be harder than against Arsenal," he said.

"I want to see my players concentrated and angry because of the way we lost in the last minute."

Leicester face West Bromwich Albion, Watford, Newcastle United and Crystal Palace after Norwich and Ranieri believes that these five games will decide their fate in the title race.

"The five matches next for us, I believe they can be key in our season," he added.

"We want to grow and stay at a high level. We have to manage the pressure and have the confidence."
