Marc Albrighton savouring every minute of Leicester title run

Marc Albrighton has urged Leicester to enjoy every minute of their fairytale season as they close in on a shock Premier League title triumph.

The 26-year-old, like most of his team-mates, has entered uncharted territory with the Foxes heading into their final five games of the campaign already assured of a top-four finish and seven points clear of closest rivals Tottenham at the top.

However, he is determined to make the most of whatever comes their way during the remaining weeks of the season.

Albrighton said: "It is fantastic. Obviously there are a lot of players in there who have never been in this situation before, me included, so we have just got to enjoy every minute of it and embrace the moment."

Leicester maintained their advantage at the summit on Sunday, briefly extending it to 10 points with a 2-0 win at lowly Sunderland before Spurs saw off Manchester United later in the afternoon.

It was Leicester's fifth successive victory and left them knowing three more will hand them the title, whatever their rivals do.

Manager Claudio Ranieri has studiously avoided looking too far ahead as the bandwagon has gathered pace, and the message has certainly been heeded in the dressing room.

Albrighton added: "It's just good to keep that winning habit going, I think that's massive.

"The buzz you get from a game after winning sees you through that week, and then your confidence is high for the following week.

"If we can just keep that going, then everything else will look after itself."
