‘We can cope with pres­sure’

Fiji Sun - - Sport -

Lon­don: Le­ices­ter’s win over Southamp­ton shows that they can cope with the pres­sure of mov­ing clear at the top of Premier League, says man­ager Claudio Ranieri. Wes Mor­gan scored as the lead­ers earned a fourth suc­ces­sive 1-0 win to move seven points clear of Tot­ten­ham, who drew 1-1 at Liver­pool on Satur­day. The Foxes need 12 points from their fi­nal six games to guar­an­tee the ti­tle.

“Ev­ery­body is wait­ing for us af­ter Tot­ten­ham’s draw. We gave a very good an­swer,” said Ranieri. Know­ing that Tot­ten­ham had dropped points might have in­creased the pres­sure on Ranieri’s side - but they over­came it to move closer to their first top-flight ti­tle.

Le­ices­ter were 5000-1 out­siders for the ti­tle last Au­gust af­ter nar­rowly avoid­ing rel­e­ga­tion the pre­vi­ous sea­son. Ranieri says, his squad know they may not get an­other shot at glory.- BBC
