Claudio Ranieri might not be keen to reveal the secrets to Leicesters success this season, but for centre-back pairing Wes Morgan and Robert Huth, its been all about keeping it simple.The experienced duo have been a mainstay for the table-topping Foxes this season, missing only one match between them, when Huth was suspended against Everton in December.Their effectiveness has been highlighted in recent weeks as the Premier League leaders have kept five successive clean sheets to keep their title bid on track, but what has made them so good this season? For starters, of the teams in the top four, they have played many more minutes together than the regular centre-back pairings at Tottenham, Arsenal and Manchester City.With both players enjoying injury-free seasons and only one match missed through suspension, Huth and Morgan have seen 5850 minutes of action. Robert Huth scored twice in a 3-1 win over Manchester City in February Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld had started every game for Tottenham, until Vertonghen suffered a knee injury against Crystal Palace in January that kept him out for over two months.The Belgians have played 5115 minutes together this season, ahead of Arsenals most regular pairing of Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker (4124 minutes) and Nicolas Otamendi and Martin Demichelis (3189 minutes) for Manchester City.Not only have Huth and Morgan got more game time, but they have done things slightly differently to their rivals.

Scarpe Nike Air Max Scontate . -- An ugly goal by Nick Bonino helped the Anaheim Ducks overcome the defensive-minded Phoenix Coyotes on a night when their ragged power play continued to struggle.Kimi Raikkonen insists Ferrari has not stopped believing it can win races in 2016, even if the disappointing first half of the season has hurt the team.Ferrari came into the season full of confidence it could challenge Mercedes across an entire season but has is to record a single victory. The teams second position in the championship has recently come under threat from Red Bull, leading some to suggest its title ambitions are now over.But Raikkonen is convinced that winless run will come to an end soon.?For sure the car is better than it was at the beginning of the year, but its still not good enough, Raikkonen told the press in Hungary. Its hard to know what the others have done exactly but for sure in some circuits were closer to the front, in others we suffer a lot, thats how it goes.There are still to come a lot of circuits that will be good for us, as they swapped some races around. Are we going to be good enough on those places? Time will tell, but I still expect us to win races. We can always improve, we know what are weaknesses are, were working on them but things dont happen overnight aand take time to fix.ddddddddddddWe need some patience but, for sure, in terms of package, what we have now is better than what we had at the start of the year but the others have also made good steps forward.The Finn says the teams start to the season has been hard to deal with, though he sees no reason to dwell on the negatives.Im sure were all disappointed; were all suffering when were not winning but it doesnt help. No one has given up because were not where we want to be, were not here to walk away from the issues.Its very rare you are in a position where you go into every weekend knowing youll finish first or second, thats a very fortunate place to be and were not there. Even those teams that are in such a position will keep fighting and improving their cars.I dont see a reason to be sad, but it does hurt when you finish second or third, but that doesnt mean well give up and not try. I dont see a point to be sad or not positive but we are not where we should be. ' ' '
