Ranieri doesn’t believe title odds

Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has laughed off suggestions the Foxes are favourites for the Premier League title following a 3-1 victory over Manchester City on Saturday.

Many bookmakers have cut Leicester’s title odds following their win at the Etihad Stadium, with many even going so far as to install the Premier League table-toppers as favourites for the title.

When quizzed on his side being made favourites for the title, Ranieri said: “I don’t believe them.

“They said I was first to be sacked! But I hope they are right.”

The Italian tactician is keeping his mind on the upcoming clash with fellow title hopefuls Arsenal, a match that could play a huge role in deciding the eventual winner of the Premier League crown.

He added: “I don’t want to think about if we win. My mind goes over seven days and the next game against Arsenal, a tough match with fantastic players.

“But we are alive and we want to fight. We know it’s a crazy league and we have to try. But there are some big teams who have to win.

“We enjoy it and the fans must continue to dream.”
