The Leicester City manager is adamant his players are not burdened by their lofty position in the table and are simply continuing to dream

Claudio Ranieri insists Leicester City do not feel any pressure to win the Premier League despite holding a five-point lead over upcoming opponents Arsenal.

Leicester needed an impressive run in the second half of 2014-15 to avoid relegation and they have maintained that stunning form this season to hold top spot with just 13 games to go.

Ranieri's men are now among the favourites to win the title, but the 64-year-old Italian is adamant his players remain unaffected by mounting expectations ahead of a huge clash with third-placed Arsenal at Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

"The pressure's on the others. Tell me why we have pressure? Why must I feel pressure? We just continue to dream with our fans," Ranieri told a press conference.

"I think we work so hard to achieve this level. We want to stay at this level. There's no pressure for us.
