Wes Morgan has been at the centre of Leicester’s Premier League title challenge this season, according to former Foxes defender Gerry Taggart. Leicester captain Morgan has been ever-present at the heart of Leicesters defence this term and notched his first goal of the campaign when he headed home the winner in the Super Sunday victory over Southampton.No player has blocked more shots than Morgan over the last two seasons in the Premier League and Taggart says the former Nottingham Forest man has been an integral part of Leicesters astonishing run of form this year. We signed Wes a few years ago and hes just improved year-on-year, Taggart told Sky Sports Now on Sky Sports News HQ.He leads by example as the captain and the added responsibility of being captain has helped him, there is no doubt about that.He is now at the centre of everything. He makes sure the dressing-room is run properly and all the players are doing what they should be doing. They have all gone from strength to strength and he has been at the centre of that. Morgan celebrates his winner against Southampton Morgan and centre-back partner Robert Huth have kept 19 Premier League clean sheets between them since Leicesters promotion back to the top flight two years ago.And Taggart credits former Chelsea man Huth with helping elevate the Jamaica internationals game to another level.The one thing you need in a back four is a leader. You need a talker, a communicator if you will, and Wes has been unbelievable at that, the former Northern Ireland international said. Leicester captain Wes Morgan gives his thoughts after the Southampton game But I think hes also had a lot of help from Robert Huth, who has helped him simplify his game. He was prone to making the odd silly mistake - especially in the season when they went up from the Championship - but hes cut them out his season and concentrated on being a good defender.I think that is partly down to Robert Huth.Former Premier League winner Tony Gale feels the duo are a perfect foil for one another.The two centre-backs have been so important because they have played most of the games for Leicester, Gale said.Its not about individuals when you are playing centre-back its about how you complement one another and they complement each other really well. Morgan and Huth are a no-nonsense defensive pairing says Tony Gale They are unfussy about their play. They want to head it, they want to kick it, they want to clear their lines and they dont want to over-complicate things by passing it through their midfield.Both of them are good out-and-out defenders.Leicesters win over Southampton was their fourth 1-0 victory in succession as they went seven points clear of closest rivals Tottenham.Sir Alex Ferguson told Sky Sports last week how important winning by a single goal can be for a team with title aspirations and ex-Foxes striker Tony Cottee insists grinding out victories is how you win the league.Youve got to do what Leicester are doing and thats get your 1-0 results. Its so much about results now rather than performances, he said. Sir Alex Ferguson says he cant see anything going wrong for Leicester and that they would deserve to win the title If you look at Chelsea last season, they played some really great stuff in the early part of the season but then they had to grind out the 1-0 wins.Every team that has ever won the league has done that - the great Liverpool teams and Manchester United teams of the 80s and 90s. Thats what Leicester are doing now. Get Sky Sports Join us and watch the race for the Premier League live on Sky Sports.

ARCADIA, Calif. -- California Chrome was cruising along on the lead, looking every inch the lauded veteran ready to polish his résumé with another big victory. Trailing behind was Arrogate, the youngest horse in the field, brilliant but inexperienced.In a thrilling finish to Breeders Cup weekend, racings newest star emerged.Arrogate chased California Chrome through the stretch, leaving the rest of the field in the dust. The highly anticipated showdown was on.With Mike Smith first whipping Arrogate left-handed and then right, the 3-year-old colt caught California Chrome in the final 100 yards to win the $6 million Classic by a half-length on Saturday at Santa Anita.When I did that, he gave me another jump, Smith said. That is what got us on by.The victory elevated Arrogate to heir apparent to California Chrome, who at age 5 likely has one race left in his storybook career.For Arrogate, the future is limitless. His potential is untapped, having not competed as a 2-year-old and making just his sixth start in North Americas richest race.It was California Chromes first loss in seven starts this year; Arrogate won his fifth straight.I was surprised I beat him, Arrogate trainer Bob Baffert said. I didnt think I could beat him going in.Smith earned his third Cup victory of the weekend and leading 25th of his career. Baffert won his record third consecutive Classic in front of an announced crowd of 72,811, the third highest in the events 33-year history.Owned by Juddmonte Farms, Arrogate ran 1? miles in 2:00.11 and paid $5.40, $2.80 and $2.60 as the 8-5 second choice.California Chrome set an unchallenged pace, with Melatonin second and Arrogate loping along on the outside in third down the backside.I was cruising on the lead. He was doing it so easy, so comfortable, California Chrome jockey Victor Espinoza said. Maybe I should have opened it up a liittle bit early.ddddddddddddAround the final turn, Arrogate cut inside of Melatonin and shifted to the outside, taking dead aim on California Chrome, the 2014 Horse of the Year who won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness that year.Once I switched over and dropped into the far turn, he really picked it up at that point, Smith said. Then he was relentless, this horse. He never stops. Hes got some stamina.California Chrome still had an advantage in the upper stretch, until Arrogate closed steadily to pull off the upset.You saw two champions run, said Art Sherman, California Chromes 79-year-old trainer. What can I say? We got outrun on the fair. No excuses. He ran his eyeballs out.California Chrome returned $2.60 and $2.40. Keen Ice was another 10? lengths back in third and paid $5.80 to show.Late-developing Arrogate first gained notice in August at Saratoga, winning the Travers by 13? lengths with the fastest time in the tracks 147-year history.Then he proved in the Classic that hes not a one-race wonder.This horse is just learning how to run. California Chrome is a champion, Baffert said. To run down California Chrome, thats what the Breeders Cup is all about, watching races like that.Hoppertunity, also trained by Baffert, was fourth. Melatonin finished fifth, followed by Frosted, Effinex, War Story and Win the Space, who didnt finish.Shaman Ghost was scratched.The two-day attendance total of 118,484 was the highest in the 33-year history of the Breeders Cup.The total on-track wagering Saturday at Santa Anita was $13,515,269, an increase of 3.5 percent from last years same day wagering total at Keeneland in Kentucky.
