Republic of Ireland boss Martin O'Neill has ruled out a return to Leicester City to succeed sacked Claudio Ranieri. O'Neill won the League Cup in 1997 and 2000 as Foxes manager.

The 64-year-old told BBC Radio 5 Live: "I wouldn't be going.

"I'm enjoying the job here (with the Republic) at this moment and we have some big games ahead."

O'Neill was then asked about the possibility of doing both jobs simultaneously.

"I hadn't even thought about it," he said.

"And if that were the case - not talking about myself, but in general if someone were taking time to do two jobs at the same time - I think there would be problems if you didn't get the results on both sides."

David Luiz staying humble as Chelsea close in on Premier League title

David Luiz thinks Chelsea are remaining grounded despite their commanding advantage at the Premier League summit.

The Blues beat Swansea 3-1 on Saturday to move 11 points clear of Manchester City, their nearest rivals entering this weekend's fixtures.

Luiz told Chelsea TV: "(We) need to go game by game. Premier League everybody knows is difficult.

"So keep the feet on the floor, with humility, working hard. That's the way."

It was as if Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte was speaking – the Italian has previous experience of slipping up in the home straight while he was a player with Juventus.

And Conte does not want a repeat as he vowed Chelsea would focus only on themselves. The Blues next play at West Ham on March 6.

"(Eleven points) is not the reality," Conte said.

"The other teams have to play the game. For sure we have to look at ourselves, to play game by game and to continue to show we are deserving to stay at the top of the league."
