Andy King insisted Leicester have achieved nothing yet despite handing themselves a huge survival lifeline.

The midfielder scored the Foxes' second goal in their 2-0 win over Swansea on Saturday to clinch a third straight win. It is the first time they have won three top-flight games on the trot in 15 years and the Foxes are only in the relegation zone on goal difference.

They are level on points with 17th-placed Hull but King believes their run means little while they remain in the drop zone. "It's about being outside of it come the last game of the season, there's nothing else to it," he said.

Leicester visit Turf Moor next weekend to face Burnley.

A 1-0 defeat at Everton on Saturday, courtesy of a 29th-minute Kevin Mirallas goal, coupled with the Foxes' win dropped the Clarets to the bottom of the table.
