Paul Dickov outlines what he picked up on during recent visit to Leicester City's training ground

Leicester City

Leicester City are currently five points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

Paul Dickov has told Sky Sports that there is a real buzz around Leicester City’s squad, as they are on the verge of completing something special.

Dickov used to represent Leicester during his playing days, and he has returned to the training ground to catch up with some old faces recently.

While watching the Foxes train, the former Doncaster Rovers manager could feel the happiness around the squad, and he is enjoying watching their success.

“I was down at the club a few weeks ago speaking to some of the people who still work at the club from when I was there back in 2002, and they are really enjoying themselves,” Dickov said.

"There is a fantastic buzz around the place, the players are going out and playing and training as if they were kids at school again with that enthusiasm, and they are not feeling the pressure at all.

"At the minute there is every chance they are going to play in the top four. If you had said that at the start of the season people would have thought you were crazy.

“They are taking it on a game-by-game basis. It's great.”

Leicester are on the verge of completing one of the greatest upsets in English football history.

Claudio Ranieri’s side were tipped as one of the favourites to go down this season, but they currently lead the Premier League.

Leicester have built up a five point advantage over their nearest rivals, Tottenham Hotspur, and they are now the bookies’ favourites to lift the title in May.

The Foxes have lost just three games all season, and their good form has shown no signs of slowing down.

Leicester’s next match comes on Sunday against Southampton.
