Leicester have won nothing yet, warns N'Golo Kante

13 February 2016 01:23

Leicester midfielder N'Golo Kante has reminded his team they have achieved nothing yet, ahead of Sunday's clash with title rivals Arsenal.

The Barclays Premier League leaders head to the Emirates Stadium five points clear of second-placed Tottenham and third-spotted Arsenal, having triumphed 3-1 at Manchester City last weekend.

But Kante is well aware Claudio Ranieri's side are yet to finish the job.

"The feeling at the moment is like it is for every game - we are focused and we are trying to give our best," the 24-year-old Frenchman said. "Nothing is done yet. We are only in a good position, but the league is not finished and we have to keep going.

"The manager gives me advice and tries to make me improve. I listen to him and I try to give my best.

"I think it's an important game for us and for them (Arsenal). I hope it will be a good game but the pressure is on both teams I think. For us it's always the same. We try to give our best and if we can win, we try to win and that's our goal."

The noon kick-off in north London is set to bring together the three favourites to win the Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year award - Foxes pair Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez, and Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil.

Kante is likely to be tasked with keeping six-goal Ozil quiet, but insisted the visitors need a team effort to stop the German World Cup winner.

"For me, he's a very good player," the Frenchman told Foxes Player. "I played against him in the first game (when Arsenal won 5-2 at the King Power Stadium in September) and I saw then that he was a very good player. But we are a team against Arsenal and it's the whole team - not just Ozil.

"The way we stop Mesut Ozil is as a team. He's a good player but only as a team can we stop him.

"When I was younger I did follow Arsenal in the Champions League and the Premier League because a lot of their players were French. Now I play against them, it's a really good feeling."
