Pearson has overseen the club's best ever beginning to a league campaign, with the 3-0 home win over Millwall on Saturday a 12th victory after 17 Sky Bet Championship matches.

Success against the Lions, coupled with away defeats for rivals Burnley and QPR, saw Leicester go to the top of the table.

But, ahead of a busy December which will see the Foxes face both the Clarets and Rangers, Pearson has warned there is still a long way to go.

Pearson's men were in the top two at the end of January last season before slipping off the pace and needing a last-gasp win at Nottingham Forest on the final day of the campaign to sneak into the play-offs, where they were dramatically beaten by Watford.

"The players are pleased but they are not daft, they know where we are at," said Pearson.

"We have been here before and you are always up there to be shot back down, so let's not get ahead of ourselves. It is only November but we have done okay so far. December is going to be a big month for us and we have some big games.

"Plenty of sides have been well placed at Christmas and come unstuck and plenty of sides who have been anonymous at Christmas go on to do very well.

"But we have to stay pretty single-minded about what we are trying to do ourselves. I think that has been the message from the start and it remains the message now.

"The signs are good so far but we are only a third of the way into the season, so let's not get carried away. You don't win leagues in November and December."

Leicester travel to Sheffield Wednesday, who sacked manager Dave Jones at the weekend, on Tuesday night before another away trip to Brighton on Saturday as they look to maintain their impressive form.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
