King: Three Massive Games
- A victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday will secure the Foxes’ their first-ever Premier League title
- King came on as a late substitute during the 4-0 victory over Swansea City at King Power Stadium on Sunday
- The Wales international says the Blue Army will play a huge role in City’s remaining three games
After helping Leicester City beat Swansea City 4-0 on Sunday at King Power Stadium, midfielder Andy King described the Foxes’ next three Barclays Premier League fixtures as ‘massive’.
Claudio Ranieri’s men need just three points from their clashes with Manchester United, Everton and Chelsea to secure their first-ever Premier League title.
The victory over Swansea, combined with Tottenham Hotspur’s 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion on Monday evening, means City can be crowned champions at Old Trafford on Sunday with a win.
And with the Foxes bursting with confidence after their biggest win of the season, King says his side are ready to battle against Manchester United – a club that has won the Premier League 13 times, more than any other since the league’s formation in 1992.
Speaking to Foxes Player HD after the win against the Swans, King said: “It was enjoyable. It was an important win and I think all the games now are massively important – probably the most important that this club has faced. To win in such style is good and all the boys are buzzing.
“We thought we had to press them a little higher – they had a lot of the ball in the first half. We really took the game to them in the second half.
“It was 4-0 but in all honesty it could have been a few more. It was a great win and it’s good for our confidence. We have three massive games left now.
“It was good for those of us who came on to play such a big part. We’ve seen that throughout the season. Vards (Jamie Vardy) has had an outstanding season, but Leo [Ulloa] has come in and scored two goals – that’s kind of the way our season has gone.
“Everyone is delighted for him. Vards is obviously a miss but we’ve got a lot of options with a big squad with good quality – we’ve shown that this season when we’ve needed to use it.”
King and his men were welcomed to a cauldron of noise when they stepped out onto the King Power Stadium turf on Sunday, and the Wales international says the Blue Army will play a huge role at all three remaining games.
Discussing the fans’ impact this term, King added: “It’s been phenomenal and I can’t speak highly enough of them. It means a lot to the boys and we’re going to need them now to hopefully push us over the line.
“We’ve got three massive games left – three cup finals is what the manager keeps saying to us – and the fans are going to be vitally important in that.
“It’s one game at a time – everyone keeps saying it. We’ve got a tough game at Manchester United, who are going for a top four position, which is obviously massive for them.
“We’re confident of putting in a good performance. That will stand us in good stead and we’re looking forward to it.”
