Ranieri: Leicester Must Be Clever Against Crystal Palace



Leicester manage, Claudio Ranieri has warned his players to be wary of Crystal Palace when they host the Eagles on Saturday at the King Power Stadium, reports Completesportsnigeria.com.


Ranieri's men have been in poor form in the English Premier League this season  winning only two of their first eight  games and the Italian coach is keen for his third win of the season.


Palace currently sit ninth in the table having recorded victories against Middlesbrough, Stoke City and Sunderland in the Premier League this term. 


"Palace are strong at the back and then they have good players at the front. A good team and well organised. We must be clever," Ranieri said at his press conference on Thursday. 


“We made a very good match on Tuesday (Champions League against Copenhagen), but now we think of Crystal Palace. They are strong and tall, similar to Copenhagen.”


He also dropped a hint that Andy King, Jamie Vardy and Wes Morgan will be passed fit to play despite missing Thursday's training.


"Today Andy King, Jamie Vardy and Wes Morgan didn't train but I think tomorrow they will be OK.


"Vardy had a little groin problem but we just want to be sure he recovers. King got a kick on the shin but he'll be OK.


"Matty James for the first time has trained for seven days without pain. It’s fantastic. We need a player like him."


Ranieri who clocked 65 on Thursday ruled out any form of celebration, adding that he is celebrating by getting the players ready for Saturday's game against Crystal Palace.


"I feel good. For me my job is my life, I want to carry on."
