Matt Le Tissier explains the secret behind Leicester City's success

Leicester City

Leicester City kept their first clean sheet of the season to beat Crystal Palace.

Matt Le Tissier has told Sky Sports' Soccer Saturday that he believes there are a number of reasons why Leicester City have been so successful this season.

The Foxes have become the comeback specialists in England's top-flight, and they have still only lost one game in the entire campaign so far.

Their good run of form has pushed them into fifth in the Premier League table, and Le Tissier has identified a host of reasons why Leicester's fighting spirit is so strong. 

"I think they have just got a belief about them," he said. "The way they finished last season, and started this season so well, there's a togetherness about them which makes it look like it doesn't matter if they're a goal or two down.

"They have the energy in the side, and they have a great rapport with the manager. All those things combined means it looks like they're never out of a football match."

Leicester's ability to come back was not needed this weekend, as they finally were able to claim their first clean sheet in a win over Crystal Palace.

Claudio Ranieri's side beat Palace 1-0, and their first shut-out of the season was welcomed by everyone connected with the club as it highlighted another side to their game.

Leicester have proved that they can be threatening going forward, but if they want to stay in the upper echelons of the table, they will have to tighten up their backline. 

The Foxes' next league match comes against West Bromwich Albion, where they will be keen to continue their excellent run of results.
