West Ham 2-3 Leicester: Foxes revival continues

West Ham 2-3 Leicester: Foxes revival continues

"Leicester's title defence has been mystifying at times, certainly under Claudio Ranieri, but their debut in the Champions League has continued the fairy tale".

"I haven't found it a challenge so far and I can only go on what I have experienced". I would take anyone, there is not a bad team in there.

Asked whether he dreamt of lifting the Champions League trophy, he said: "Yeah, you know, we achieved the impossible winning the Premier League and I'm sure no one would have thought we'd get this far in the Champions League, so why not dream?" "Because they've gone on to win three consecutive games".

City fans sang 'Are You Going To Madrid?' after being drawn against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League quarter finals.

"I think we've got to just take it one game at a time, wait and see who we get, and then concentrate".

"We have to improve and we have to bounce back".

The frustration led to former Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri, who is on a loan spell to Sevilla, headbutting Jamie Vardy in the 73rd minute and being sent off after getting his second yellow card.

"There are some good ones (strikers) and he is proven in terms of being in the (England) squad before so he's up there with the rest of them".

"We played Barca in pre-season and it would be nice to play at the Bernabeu".

I watched the Bournemouth highlights and was scratching my head as to why Sullivan became so annoyed rather than just irritated - plenty of teams this season have conceded a late victor.

Leicester captain Wes Morgan missed his first game of the season with a back injury which meant a rare appearance for Tunisian defender Yohan Benalouane in his place.

But the Foxes are three points above the relegation zone and yet to win away in the league this season with Shakespeare confident they will shake off their European joy.

Leicester's "belief, energy and confidence" has returned under the new manager, continues Cross, who says: "Those who staggered around before like drunks at kicking out time now stand tall again", but also laments their role in Ranieri's downfall.

"It seems the very best players are concentrated elsewhere, and there is just a sprinkling of the leading players in the Premier League sides".

However he is staying optimistic, and why wouldn't he after the 18 months Leicester have just had. The talk straight after the game was to improve the away record.

Leicester City held on after a frantic finale to win their first away game of the season in an excellent match at the London Stadium.
