WHAT DID HE SAY? Claudio Ranieri

5th November

Ready for a dilly ding-dong derby?

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri has been looking ahead to Sunday’s midlands meeting with Albion. Here’s what he had to say about the game.

 

ON ALBION:

I expect the same kind of match as last season, a very tough match [Albion drew 2-2 at Leicester]. 


They are a good team, they defend very well and they are good in the counter-attacking moments. This is what we expect from them.

 

ON INJURIES:

The injury to Kasper Schmeichel is a pity, but that’s it. What can we do, change the hand? Kasper is very important for my team but I am very confident with Ron-Robert Zieler, so it’s okay.

 

I think Slimani is going to be ok, we will check on Saturday.

 

Nampalys Mendy is out but he is getting better. Maybe after the international break, he is ready.
