LEICESTER CITY have demonstrated many things throughout this highly unusual season, chief among them the almost forgotten truth that you cannot always buy your way to success. They’ve also now demonstrated that they are no Arsenal and possess the mental fortitude required to see their fantastical campaign through to the finish line.
A 4-0 hammering of Swansea, achieved without star striker Jamie Vardy, saw Leicester resume their sprint for title glory, following Barcelona’s no-hold-barred approach which saw the Catalan giants ratchet up 14 goals in two games with no reply.
Indeed the still-blinking, jubilant Leicester fans were singing “Barcelona we’re coming for you”, as their side, led by the demure Claudio Ranieri, confirmed that, at the very least, they will have the chance to lead their first ever Champions League campaign next season.
A top four finish would have been snatched violently by the most ardently optimistic Leicester supporters at the beginning of the season, but now anything less than a league victory will be considered a huge disappointment.
Leicester need just five points from their remaining three fixtures to snatch the unlikeliest title triumph in Premier League history, and that is assuming second-place Tottenham win their last four games.
