​Leicester keeper Schmeichel remaining grounded

Leicester keeper Kasper Schmeichel insists the club have "achieved nothing" yet as they close in on an unprecedented Premier League title.

Schmeichel, who has been at the club since 2011, has kept five clean sheets in his last five games, but insists the club are not celebrating yet.

He told Sky Sports: "We've achieved nothing in our eyes yet, we want to finish the season on a high and our next game is vital for us.

"Clean sheets are a foundation for winning games and that's by no mean just down to me, it's down to the whole team and the way we defend. Right from the top to the back two. It's a great platform, but wins are more important.

"I don't like to single out just the back four because it has been a team effort, but you can never fault these guys because they give 100 per cent, they are honest lads and throw their bodies in front of anything and any mistakes are made in this team through honesty and not laziness.

"You can't be anything but proud of the lads. We're enjoying this, this is what you're in football for."
