Huth scored the opener against City.

Leicester City fans change Robert Huth's Wikipedia entry during Manchester City game

Published Add your comment

Ah Leicester City fans - you have to give it to them; they know how to celebrate while the going is good.

The Foxes are currently surprise leaders of the Premier League and, as it stands anyway, beating Manchester City 2-0 - a win that would put six points between them and Manuel Pellegrini's side at the top of the table with 12 games to go.

While some supporters were busy ironically chanting 'we are staying up' after Robert Huth bundled home his first half opener, other, more opportunistic Leicester fans who hadn't made it to the game, found a way to get involved still.

How, you ask? Well, by editing Huth's Wikipedia entry, that's how. The crowd-sourced encyclopaedia allows anyone to edit its pages and Leicester fans took advantage of that fact, changing the defender's page to read: "He became a local hero for Leicester when he scored a goal against Manchester City and won them the Premier League title.

Although that thought still remains fanciful for now, a win over Manchester City would go some way to proving their credentials as a top four team at least.

Three points today would put them 13 points clear of Manchester United in fifth place, with Louis van Gaal's side facing a tricky tie against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, where they have lost in their last three games.

Only Aston Villa have squandered such an advantage to fall out of the top four in Premier League history, and bookmakers are already starting to fear a massive pay out if Claudio Ranieri's side do go on to win the league.

A report in the Daily Mail claims that bookies are set to take a £5 million hit if the Foxes can win the title, having made a £150,000 profit from Chelsea winning last season.
