Barclays Premier League
Kick Off: 17:30 GMT
Date: 28 Novermber 2015
Referee: Craig Pawson
Venue: King Power Stadium 


Claudio Ranieri: “It’s the big match of the Premier League this week. We are top of league and in this moment we deserve this. For us, it’s another match to see how we have to improve. When we play great teams, great champions, I have to see how our team show the tactics – how we react if we lose a goal, and how we react if we score a goal. [On United’s Anthony Martial, who played for him at Monaco] He is 19 years old. It is right to make criticism – andScholes made the right criticism – but it will improve his mind. His character is very strong, he is young, but strong. It is important that he is also intelligent and then he can improve.

Louis van Gaal: “I don’t think anybody has expected that [they’d be top at this stage], even Leicester themselves. But they are deserved at number one because points are the most important thing; goals are important, but winning points is more important… Our defensive organisation is normally the best part of our game. We’ve proved that more than ever this season. The fans have to be happy, you are playing for the fans but you have to see how our opponents are playing against us. If we weren’t creating chances I’d be worried, but we are and we don’t give too much away – normally our results are good.”
