Leicester City Win the Premier League
The Foxes have outfoxed the rest of England’s top flight teams to claim their very first Premier League title. This supposed ragtag bunch of budget-buys and cast-offs rallied under the supervision of their reject manager, Claudio Ranieiri, to overcome the odds. 5000-to-1, to be precise. Over the weekend, Leicester City needed a win to secure the title but a valiant effort by Manchester United resulted in a draw, delaying the Foxes’ celebrations. Fortunately for them, that wait only lasted a day. Tottenham, who had to win at Stamford Bridge yesterday to keep their title hopes alive, only managed a draw even after leading Chelsea 2-0 at half time. This costly mistake meant no one will be able to catch Leicester City this season- even with two games to go.

Jamie Vardy’s retort on Twitter yesterday was as cheeky as it was ingenious. Obviously, scoring goals is not the only thing this striker is good at. We reckon Kane will still be feeling the burn of this one when the Premier League starts anew.

Considering they could do nothing but hope and pray that Spurs slip up, the Foxes gathered at Vardy’s residence to watch the game. Naturally, things got pretty crazy when the ref blew the final whistle. The raucous celebration is proof that there is nothing quite like the adrenaline rush of sports. Congratulations, Leicester City! A hard-fought and well-earned title indeed. It was about time someone shook the Premier League’s tree. Here are the teams that have lifted this prestigious trophy through the years.
