Claudio Ranieri joked that “nobody wants to win this league” after his Leicester side drew 0-0 with Manchester City.
The Foxes are level on points with Arsenal at the top of the Premier League but their 39-point haul is way short of Chelsea’s 46-point half-way tally last season.
“This league is very, very crazy,” Ranieri said. “Nobody wants to win the league, it’s very strange this league.”
There’s nothing stranger than Leicester rising from 20th place to joint-first in the space of 12 months.
“We are starting now to build our team,” said Ranieri. “I told my players we are at the basement but the other sides are a villa with swimming pool and everything.
“It’s not easy for us but we want to fight against everybody.”
Leicester now face Bournemouth on Saturday with the Italian claiming that is a tougher fixture than their clash with City’s millionaires.
“Believe me, the next match against Bournemouth will be more difficult,” he said. “Why? Because they are in good condition, they press a lot, they move the ball well, and I remember the match there in Bournemouth (when Leicester needed a late penalty to get a point).”
