Ranieri: It Will Be Hard To Break United’s Defence

share on:

Claudio Ranieri believes his side, Leicester City, will have a had time breaking through Manchester United’s defence, when they meet on Saturday.

Ranieri’s men currently top the table and have 28 goals from 13 games, however they’ve conceded a whooping 20 goals.

United on the other hand have been good defensively, but have come under criticism for inability to attack.

“Manchester United’s defensive line is fantastic,” Ranieri said at a news conference.

“They defend like a unit and it’s difficult to break their lines.”

Ranieri will be hoping Jamie Vardy can continue his fantastic goalscoring run in the Premier League as the striker aims to break Ruud van Nistelrooy’s record of netting in 10 consecutive games, having equalled the Dutchman in last week’s 3-0 win over Newcastle United.

“Vardy is a champion. For me he’s a champion because he thinks more about the team than himself,” Ranieri added.

“I hope for Jamie and for the fans that he breaks the record.”

Vardy currently tops the Premier League goalscoring charts with 13, four clear of Everton striker Romelu Lukaku.
