London: Italian Claudio Ranieri (right) admits he still laughs at suggestions his Leicester side can win the EPL.
The Foxes moved level on points with leaders Arsenal after Robert Huth’s late header saw them leave Tottenham with a 1-0 win on Wednesday evening. Those three points, coupled with Liverpool’s late leveller against the Gunners, leaves the top two locked together on 43 points.

Leicester have continued to defy the odds and be genuine title contenders. But Ranieri, who saw Huth head home Christian Fuchs’ 82nd-minute corner to wrap up the win at Tottenham four days after they drew 2-2 at White Hart Lane in the FA Cup, says he still finds it amusing when people say his team can lift the title.
When asked how he responds to questions about winning the league, he replied: “I laugh. If it was May, maybe, but it’s only January. It’s good, we will continue to work hard and remain on the ground. It is a crazy, crazy, crazy league this year.”
