WHAT THE MANAGERS SAY
Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri: “I want players to play for the team, to be strong, to fight and to be competitive – I want no more. If you lose this how can you win?
“Not even the big players can win without fight. That is football.
“Last season we won because some big teams didn’t fight as well as us and now we want that back, not to win the title but to defend the title and not be in the relegation zone.”
Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola: “Maybe the (Leicester) players were so focused on the Champions League, the first experience in their lives, the travel, the music, everything. Sometimes you are not focused on the Premier League.
“But now they have qualified they have two months to focus on the Premier League. The players are there, the defensive structure is quite solid and the goalkeeper is really good.
“They have a lot of quality and I’m pretty sure they are going to come back to what they deserve.”
