Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has hailed his team's season as unbelievable, adding that "little Leicester" being so high in the league is "not normal". The Foxes are currently second in the Premiership, and are only behind league-leaders Arsenal on goal difference.

"If the 'little' Leicester are looked down, it's normal. It's not normal what Leicester are doing. It's unbelievable. It's fantastic and our fans are dreaming," said the Italian. "The fans must continue to dream, we must continue to work hard. That is a good balance. It's January, it's a pity it's not May. I hope to tell you the same next month".

City beat Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 at White Hart Lane on 13 January to continue their incredible season. They are now eight points clear of fifth place, and are in the mix for the Champions League places, and maybe even the title.

Leicester finished 14th last season, but only after a remarkable turnaround saw them narrowly avoid relegation. They managed to win seven of their last nine matches under previous boss Nigel Pearson to pull off a great escape.

The Foxes next take on bottom club Aston Villa in the Premier League on 16 January.
