Ranieri says Leicester must shake off any 'hangover'

Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri has demanded his players not bask in this week's Champions League success at Club Brugge.

Ranieri knows that the doubters are also expecting a hangover following their continental exertions.

"I want to see how we respond," Ranieri said. "I don't want excuses. The players tell me they are OK and they have to show this on the pitch. Burnley maybe think we can be tired in the last 15 minutes.

"The players recovered very well and a good session today (Friday). If Burnley beat us, it's because they are better than us on the day."
