The Foxes could only manage a 2-2 draw against West Bromwich Albion, and could relinquish top spot should Tottenham Hotspur beat West Ham in their midweek fixture this evening.
Despite the solitary point, Leicester coach Ranieri was well-pleased with his charges.
"I am very pleased with our performance," he told BBC Sport. "The players played so well, there was no panic after the first goal.
"We played much better than against Norwich. I am satisfied with the performance. Just sometimes you can do everything but the ball doesn't want to go in.
"I want to create a lot of chances and sooner or later we score. Tonight wasn't the right moment but we are alive and we fight to the end.
Ranieri feels that his side are fully focused on giving the League title chase all they’ve got, with just ten matches left in the campaign.
"Everybody is ready to fight, to play well, to create chances,” he said. “Only the victory was missing [tonight].
"I love this, we never, never give up. We always try the best in every situation.
"Every team plays football and we have to find the solution and try to win.”
The Foxes take on Watford in their next fixture on Saturday.
