Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy: "We're just enjoying the ride"

Jamie Vardy says that he and his Leicester City teammates are "enjoying the ride" in their Premier League title race.

Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy has insisted that he and his teammates are just "enjoying the ride" in their charge for the Premier League title.

The Foxes currently have a five-point lead at the top of the table following last weekend's 3-1 win over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.

Twelve months ago, the Foxes were battling for survival in the top flight, but under new manager Claudio Ranieri they have upset the odds and are realistic contenders for the crown.

Instead of feeling the pressure ahead of Sunday's clash against title rivals Arsenal, Vardy has insisted that he and his teammates are relaxed.

"We're just enjoying it aren't we? We're just enjoying the ride," Sky Sports News quotes Vardy as saying. "If you start thinking about it too much it's going to affect you, it's as simple as that. We'll just continue to do exactly the same thing we've done all season.

"Arsenal are up there, we're up there, City are and Tottenham. Manchester United might be 10 points adrift but the way this season's going those 10 points can be picked up quickly.

"We'll just take every game as it comes, knuckle down and hopefully keep picking points up."

Tottenham Hotspur are second, Arsenal are third and Manchester City sit fourth.
