Against all the odds, Leicester City are the champions of England. On May, 7, after their game against Everton at 12.30 p.m. EST, they will be presented with the Premier League trophy! Watch the match and the presentation right here!
They did it! Leicester City were crowned Premier League champions for the first time in their 132-year history on May. 2 after their nearest rivals Tottenham Hotspur slipped up against Chelsea. Now it’s party time with Andrea Bocelli at the King Power Stadium for their home game against Everton where they will receive the Premier League trophy in front of their own fans.

You must’ve been living under a rock if you didn’t know about Leicester City, seeing it is one of the most incredible sporting achievements of all-time. 5000-1 shots at the start of the season, they overcame all the odds to beat the more fancied Manchester City and Arsenal to the title, and boy didn’t they deserve it!
Bearing in mind they won the championship with two games to spare means that this game has absolutely no relevance to the final standings for the champs, but they will be in the mood to turn on the style and beat Everton for their fans before they’re awarded the covered Premier League crown.
No doubt, Jamie Vardy will be looking at adding to his goals this year that see him vying with Sergio Aguero and Harry Kane in the race to be leading goalscorer in the top division this season. He really has come out of nowhere this year, which isn’t bad for a player who was playing semi-professional only 5 years ago for $85 per week!
The result isn’t important, but with all the pressure off and the freedom to play how they want, Leicester could look to put on a spectacle for their fans and win comfortably by a lot of goals.
