Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has set his sights on wrapping up the Premier League title after the club claimed Champions League qualification.
Leicester are five points clear of second-placed Tottenham Hotspur at the top of the table with four matches of the season remaining, having already clinched qualification for Europe’s premier competition.
Ranieri has previously been reluctant to acknowledge his side are on the cusp of a shock title win, but the Italian has accepted the Foxes must maintain their form when they host Swansea on Sunday as they look to take another step closer to glory.
He said at his prematch news conference: “We are in the Champions League, man! Dilly ding, dilly dong! It’s fantastic. Well done to everybody — fans, staff and players.
“It’s unbelievable. Now we try to win the Premier League title.”
Looking ahead to the match against the Swans, Ranieri said he has a decision to make with his starting XI as star striker Jamie Vardy is suspended for two games.
He said: “Shinji Okazaki is a nice boy. He’s always laughing, and so is N’Golo Kante. They’re nice boys and football is one language.
“Riyad Mahrez is fantastic. Riyad is our light. When he switches on, Leicester change colour.
“We will have to change something. Without Jamie Vardy we’ll make another strategy, but we’ll see on Sunday.
“Leo Ulloa deserves to play but there is a team and I think about what is best for the team.
“When you want to win the title it’s important to win. Swansea is a difficult match. Battle. It will be a battle.
“Swansea close very well and press very well, but we want to win the Premier League so we will have to fight.
“On Sunday everyone will give a little more to each other to try to win the match.”
