Albrighton insists pressure on Leicester squad is non-existent

Marc Albrighton has made it vehemently clear that Leicester City are not under any added pressure.

The Foxes have been the story of the year by occupying top spot on the Premier League table and with a three-point lead on the chasing pack, the title dream lis fast-becoming a reality.

Ahead of Saturday's top-of-the-table clash with Manchester City, winger Albrighton says the Leicester playing group do not sense an extra burden as they continue their run to what would be a surprising albeit popular achievement.

"None of the lads in there are feeling any kind of pressure," Albrighton told Foxes Player HD.

"Maybe it's because we're not meant to be where we are and nobody would put us where we are.

"If we finished the season on the same amount of points that we've got now it'd be a brilliant season. The pressure is non-existent in the camp.

"We just enjoy our football and have put ourselves in a position where we can do that. It's great to be going out on a pitch feeling like that."
