Manager Claudio Ranieri has said that Leicester’s unexpected start to Premier League life in 2015-16 is good for the division.

Speaking to following the most recent victory over Crystal Palace at the weekend, Ranieri explained that he knew the Premier League had changed following his stint all those years ago with Chelsea, but with Leicester doing well and other teams making it a so far, unpredictable league table, he feels that can only be good for the game.

‘Every match is difficult in the Premier League. This year, you don`t know what`s going to happen on the pitch. That`s good for all the fans who love this sport. For us, we must achieve 40 points to be safe. After that, we`ll see. For now, 40 points, 21 more.’

With Leicester clearly carrying the momentum over from last season’s Great Escape into this campaign, only having lost once to Arsenal in the matches so far, the table certainly has an largely unexpected feel to it with the sides in the top ten, and even those down the bottom and the gaffer went on to express his thanks to the players and the staff for their efforts on inheriting them.

‘At the beginning I was curious to see how my players understood me and how I understood them. I must say thank you to all the English staff because they support me, they help me to know everything about the club, to choose and to put the players in the right positions. We play like a team, that`s what makes me happy.’
