Leicester top of Premier League

Leicester top of Premier League

Leicester are five points clear at the top of the Premier League this morning.

They beat relegation-threatened Norwich 1-0 thanks to an 89th minute winner from Leonardo Ulloa.

It is after nearly two weeks without a game.

Manager Claudio Ranieri was pleased with the win - and says that gap in fixtures came at a bad time for his side.

“Only if you are losing so many matches it is better, there is a break, but we were playing well when we lost against Arsenal and we would have liked to continue playing well but it was impossible.”
