It’s hard to remember that this time last year Leicester were fighting for their life to stay in the Premier League and were rock bottom of the standings. Fast forward a year, with minimal changes in the squad made and a new coach in Italian Claudio Ranieri installed, Leicester are on their way to winning their most unlikely championship ever, which will be their first in their 132-year-old history!
Much of Leicester’s success has been down to their forward pair of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez. Jamie, who has been the subject of a Hollywood movie, showed how good he is on the international stage scoring against Germany and the Netherlands for England. Him and Riyad will take some stopping.
In their last game before the international break, Leicester continued their incredible run by winning a tough game away at Crystal Palace 1-0. From here on in every game we’ll feel like a cup final for Leicester if they are to stay top of the Premier League.
The whole footballing world wants Leicester to win the championship, just because it’s such a romantic story to see a team that isn’t the most fashionable challenging for the Premier League. It would be an amazing achievement if they can hold onto their lead, with Tottenham Hotspur breathing down their necks.
