Leicester’s incredible season continues – they’re now five points clear at the top of the Premier League after this convincing victory.
Manuel Pellegrini’s most interesting selections were down his left flank. Fabian Delph was fielded in a narrow left-sided role, as he was for the 2-1 defeat to Arsenal shortly before Christmas, while Pellegrini also selected his more attack-minded left-back, Aleksandar Kolarov. This was likely to be a key zone considering Riyad Mahrez plays on that side and Jamie Vardy often drifts towards the inside-right channel. Pablo Zabaleta started over Bacary Sagna on the opposite side.
Claudio Ranieri rarely rotates his side – this was the fourth consecutive game he’d deployed this XI from the start.
