Cape Town - Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri insists his side will go all out for the win against Everton on Saturday, despite already being confirmed as Premier League champions.

The Foxes will lift their first ever Premier League trophy in front of their home fans at the King Power Stadium after their match against the Toffees, but the Italian's first priority is winning the match.

"Now I have to come only first, if I want to stay in a place I want to win," Ranieri said. 

"Inside me there are two people. One is a very aggressive, I want to win. I won the Premier League but now I want to win on Saturday. I want to win next season and is never satisfied.

"Another says 'Claudio, how many managers are there in the world? Too many. Not everyone can be Sir Alex Ferguson, [Fabio] Capello, [Carlo] Ancelotti, you are having a very good career'."

The Foxes were 5000-1 to win the league at the start of the campaign, but have defied the odds with two games to spare.

Their final match of the season will be away at Ranieri's former employers, and incumbent champions Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
