The striker will be hoping to score for the 11th consecutive game when Louis van Gaal's side travel to the King Power Stadium

Premier League leaders Leicester City welcome second-placed Manchester United to the King Power Stadium on Saturday and Claudio Ranieri is intrigued to see how his players cope in the spotlight.

Star striker Jamie Vardy is hoping to break Ruud van Nistelrooy's goalscoring record by netting for an 11th consecutive Premier League game when he faces the Dutchman's former side.

Vardy's performances have gone a long way to securing a dream start to 2015-16 for the pre-season relegation candidates, with 28 points and the same number of goals scored from their opening 13 games.

Leicester boss Ranieri is still insisting the initial target is to reach 40 points and secure safety but feels his players deserve their current position at the top of the pile and looks forward to seeing how they cope with the test of facing United, who they beat 5-3 in the corresponding fixture last year.

"I am very curious about how we respond to these big matches," he said. "We know that sooner or later we will lose but we just want to show our great character. The spirit of our group is so strong.

"Saturday is a great challenge for us to improve. We have had good matches but we also have weaknesses and we have to cover them. We are top of the table and in this moment I think we deserve it, but this is another match to understand where we can improve.

"I think we are building a very big construction. I believe in the next year Leicester will grow. We are very happy.

"Some people say Leicester can remain at the top, others say it is just a moment. I am glad for the fans but we are just focused. It is an open season but our goal is 40 points."
