Ranieri: We have to fight

Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri admits his position at the club could be in jeopardy if they don't turn their form around soon.

The defending Premier League champions have had a nightmare campaign so far and find themselves in 16th position, only two points above the relegation zone.

Despite achieving the seemingly impossible by guiding them to the title last term, Ranieri says he could still be fired if he continues to fail to produce results this season.

"Last season was completely different," he said.

"Every decision of the referee, every shot that hit the post was a goal, the first shot went in, the opponents missed a chance and penalties against us weren't penalties and penalties for us were penalties.

"Everything is wrong but we have to fight for ourselves.

"When everything is going well there are so many people who say 'well done'. It's too easy."

Next up for the Foxes is a tough home match against Champions League-chasing Manchester United on Sunday.
