Leicester City boss Claudio Ranieri had insisted that he would take his players out for pizza when they were able to keep their first clean sheet this season, and the Italian ensured that he backed up his words this week.

The Foxes defeated Crystal Palace 1-0 at the King Power Stadium last weekend to pick up their first shutout of the campaign, and Ranieri was evidently in the mood to celebrate it.
While that in itself was a great achievement for the backline and the team as a whole, the Premier League table makes for good reading for Leicester City fans after 10 games.
Ranieri’s men are currently in fifth place in the standings having picked up 19 points so far this season, and although they may well have started with lower expectations it remains to be seen what they are able to achieve this year.
It is also unclear as to what the Italian tactician will do the next time his side keep a clean sheet, but he certainly can’t be faulted for building team morale as he looks to maintain their current momentum.
Leicester crashed out of the Capital One Cup on Tuesday night after losing on penalties to Hull City, and so they will look to bounce back from their disappointment when they take on West Bromwich Albion on Saturday afternoon.
