Albrighton hails battling spirit in Leicester squad

Leicester City

Leicester City could be crowned Premier League champions tonight.

Leicester City star Marc Albrighton has suggested that it is their battling spirit that has lead them to the brink of achieving one of the greatest feats in the history of football, as reported by Sky Sports.

The former Aston Villa man has been a revelation since his move across the Midlands in the summer, scoring twice and registering six assists in 36 Premier League appearances, and he hailed the bond he shares with his teammates:

"We've got that never-say-die attitude. I think that's won us a lot of points this season."

The Foxes displayed that attitude in yesterday's 1-1 draw at Old Trafford, in coming from a goal down to share the spoils. Every question that has been posed to this Leicester side has been answered emphatically, and Albrighton pin-pointed three games that he believes have been vital in establishing their lead in the league:

"Early on this season you've got the draws at Stoke and Southampton, we were 2-0 down in both of them, and 2-0 down in the home game against Villa, which we went on to win 3-2."

Claudio Ranieri's men have two fixtures remaining in the Premier League, at home to Everton and a trip to Stamford Bridge to take on Chelsea, and if they can achieve two points from those games, it will be irrelevant what Tottenham do.

Whatever happens, it has been an incredible season for everyone involved with Leicester City.
