Ranieri says Leicester title fight continues after strong showing against West Brom

Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri has claimed that his side will continue to fight for the title after a hard-fought 2-2 draw with West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday night.

The Foxes moved three points clear at the top with the draw, however, Tottenham can replace them at the summit if they win at West Ham United on Wednesday.

"I'm very, very pleased that we played so well," said Ranieri after Danny Drinkwater and Andy King's goals were cancelled out by Salomon Rondon and Craig Gardner's strikes either side of the Foxes two goals.

"Also after their first goal there was no panic, we continued to build. We knew we must be calm, patient and move the ball quickly.

"We made a lot of chances but the ball doesn't want to go inside [the goal]! That is football but I am more happy now than after the game against Norwich. Against Norwich we won but tonight we played much better.

"Tonight the ball doesn't want to go inside but we continue to fight. We believe in ourselves and we continue to fight.

"It's the same, I don't see the title. Tonight we made a very good performance and I'm happy. We must believe until the end, until the end every match is important to us to understand what we can do in our life."
