Ranieri: Every game is tough when you're top of the League

Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri claims travelling to title rivals Arsenal this weekend will be "no more difficult" than facing Norwich next weekend.

The Foxes have the chance to go eight points clear at the top of the Premier League with a win at the Emirates. However, their manager claims being title favourites brings about its own challenges...

The Leicester boss also batted away claims that he and his side are beginning to face the pressure that comes with being favourites for the League Title.

"We feel no extra pressure, we and our fans are simply in dream-land, don't wake us up yet, we want to enjoy this for a while longer".

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri refused to accept his team are now title favourites after their sensational 3-1 win at Manchester City.

The surprise Premier League leaders opened up a six-point lead over Manuel Pellegrini's men - the side many expect to take the crown - with a near-perfect display at the Etihad Stadium.

One leading bookmaker immediately made Leicester - 5,000/1 outsiders at the start of the season - the new 7/4 favourites for the title.

But Ranieri, aware he was the one-time hot favourite in the 'sack race', said: "I don't believe the bookmakers. At the beginning of the season the bookmakers said, 'sack Ranieri'. I hope one time they are right!"
