Leicester City will NOT be relegated and respect Ranieri, says Mourinho

Manchester United have fewer injury concerns, with only Phil Jones not available after he came off against Hull.

He could be replaced by Eric Bailly, who is back from global duty, or Chris Smalling. It was the moment where no matter what which club you supported, you would have enjoyed the moment as it was a footballing miracle. United is sixth, two points behind fourth-placed Liverpool. Now, just one point above the relegation zone, if they don't start getting results in the league, they could find themselves playing in the second division (The Championship) next season. A run of eight defeats in 14 games has left the Foxes looking over their shoulder extremely nervously.

If Leicester are relegated, they will make history.

Jose Mourinho believes Leicester City will avoid Premier League relegation and said that Claudio Ranieri deserves respect for his achievements at the club. "It was something terrific, but now we are Leicester and every game we have to fight - that's it".

"The pressure is split to everybody". This is the way we want to play. Then, and though Ranieri was dismissed before the end of the campaign, the Spanish giants went down for the first time since the 1930s.

"We're together. I'm happy with the players and they're happy with me".

"We attack so much and with so many players, and so many players have the freedom in our dynamic to reach scoring positions". We have a fantastic relationship.

Whatever the Foxes' future is, it's clear that it involves a relegation fight.

Think you can do better than Lawro?

Winning the Premier League - even once - is going to be the peak of a lot of these Leicester players' careers whereas Kante is going to win it twice in succession. It will be the first occasion Moss has officiated a Leicester game since his controversial ap-pearance last April when West Ham were given a debatable penalty and Vardy was dismissed for diving.

It was around this time past year when people started taking Leicester City seriously as Premier League title challengers, as they went to the Etihad turning in a dominant performance in a 3-1 win against a much-fancied Manchester City side.

Such were the odds of Leicester's title triumph, it could take another hundred years for them to build an equivalent team. Claudio Ranieri has admitted his job could be on the line and, perhaps most worrying of all, are tales of mutiny among the erstwhile band of brothers. The man who scored in a record 11 successive games on the way to the title has been on target in only three league games this season.

Atlanta had a chance to make it a two-possession game and needed three plays to gain 68 yards and reach New England's 22. "I was staying aggressive, my mind-set aggressive", Jones said. "The guy is the best to ever lace them up".
