The Foxes, who host West Ham today, are odds-on favourites to finish the season on top after mounting the most amazing title bid in the history of the Premier League.

"We made a good story, but to make something you will remember in 30 or 40 years we have to win," said. "We don't achieve anything yet.

We have to fight to achieve the Champions League. Football is very strange. If you weren't here in Leicester but somewhere else, maybe Chelsea or Manchester United, with seven points more, you would say 'it is finished'.

At this moment you don't think this. Why? Because we are Leicester. We have to fight and we have to be focused and strong."
