Revived Leicester writes winning record for Shakespeare

Leicester cruised through the remainder of the second half and, with a Champions League quarter-final against Atletico Madrid on the horizon, can head into a busy spell in good spirits.

Crouch had another glorious opening in the dying minutes, but again failed to test Schmeichel to sum up a miserable day for Mark Hughes' men.

Leicester City's Jamie Vardy celebrates scoring his sides second goal against Stoke City, during their English Premier League soccer match at the King Power Stadium in Leicester, England, Saturday April 1, 2017.

Leicester boss Craig Shakespeare (on winning his first four Premier League games as a manager): "Sometimes you have to pinch yourself in terms of the names being mentioned".

"There are a lot of twists and turns to come and we're proof of that", said Shakespeare.

Craig Shakespeare has reminded his players of Leicester City's own recent great escape from Premier League relegation as the Foxes seek to avoid the dreaded drop.

"We have to make sure Premier League survival is there for us".




"I think Stoke are a very solid team with flare players".

"We knew from the beginning when we first began that was always his stance, he's never wavered from that".

He remains confident any uncertainty will not affect Leicester's summer transfer plans and is relaxed about his long-term future.

But Shakespeare says anyone thinking that they are out of trouble could be in for a rude awakening.

After stepping up from his assistant role under Claudio Ranieri to succeed the ousted Italian in a caretaker capacity, he has since been given the post permanently through to the end of the season. I don't see any reason to speak before that unless the club want to.

"I am quite comfortable about that". I speak to them regularly because I'm interested in it. "How much of an influence I can have you'll have to ask the club but I have a real interest".

However, midfielder Danny Drinkwater is fit to face Stoke despite declining an England call-up due to a hip injury.
