Leicester City boss Cluadio Ranieri has ruled that his side are not in the the title race and insist they are not ready to clinch this season’s trophy amid leading the table.
The Foxes recorded 3-2 away win over Everton last Saturday and that took them 38 points sitting on top of the table.
Leicester City are enjoying a good campaign this term as their only defeated game was a 5-2 at home to Arsenal in October and manager Cluadio Ranieri thinks they are nowhere near to win the league.
“We aren’t ready, we aren’t ready to fight to be champions, but football is fantastic for this reason. The best team does not always win. It’s not tennis,’’ the Italian said.
Despite Cluadio Ranieri been coy on title hopes, Leicester City’s chance of winning the league cannot be ruled off and they will travel to Anfield to face Liverpool on Boxing Day before playing third placed club Man City at home on January 2nd 2016.
The well traveled Italian tinker-man also says that he believes the best is yet to come for the foxes. He also expects a tough match against a Liverpool side whom he believes are improving under Klopp.
“Liverpool is a very angry team at the moment” he said talking to Sky Sports, “It is a draw or a loss” – this is all his team is thinking of the moment.
He went on to insist that 40 points is still the first target for Leicester City and then the team is safe in the Premier League and then they can think of building on from there.
The Leicester City set-up under Claudio Ranieri is doing wonders at the moment and has been a joy to watch for the fans and neutrals alike so far this season. Soon or later their dream run is about to come to an end, but this won’t be a surprise.
But take nothing away the side, they are the most consistent and ambitious side in the league so far this season brushing away the big guns when it mattered. The squad depth will be a problem for Ranieri in the second half of the season. It all now depends on adding some valuable back-ups in January transfer window and they may well finish inside the top four at the end of the season.
