Leicester forward, Marc Albrighton, has rallied his troops ahead of the Foxes’ trip to the Emirates on Sunday and insisted that they feel no fear going into the match.
Speaking to Sky Sports recently, the 26-year-old admitted that, at times, Leicester have been guilty of showing their opponents too much respect but this won’t be the case on Sunday.
“I don’t think there is [any fear],” he said.
“We have not feared anyone we have played this season.
“In a couple of games, we have probably showed teams a bit too much respect and they are the games where we have come unstuck.
“But there is no fear at all. We are confident. There is no reason why we can’t go there and cause another upset.”
Given that we’re the only team to beat them in the league this season (5-2), I’m sure he’s referring to us when he talks about showing too much respect.
This match is a huge one. Bigger than we ever could have predicted at the beginning of the season. Leicester are at the top of the Premier League, five points ahead of us and if we’re going to have any hope of catching them, beating them and making up some of that ground is a good start.
After beating Manchester City 3-1 at the Etihad, they’ve shown what they’re capable of. Now let’s show them why they should fear us.
