Schmeichel somehow managed to stop it from going in.

Kasper Schmeichel pulls off miracle save to deny West Ham

Published Add your comment

Just hand Leicester the title. Hand it to them this very second. It's obviously meant to be this year, so let's just start the party now.

Why, you say? Because it's virtually impossible to score against them. 

The Foxes are looking to go 10 points clear of Tottenham this afternoon against West Ham, but it looked like they got off to the worst possible start when Cheikhou Kouyate's fired a header on goal with just minutes on the clock.

Yet somehow, *somehow*, Kasper Schmeichel managed to get a finger to the ball, which tipped it onto the post. Leicester's charmed existence continued when the ball rolled along the goal line, hit the other post before the Danish shotstopper gratefully scooped it up. 

You can check out the incredible moment in the video below.

With just five games to go, Leicester are well on course to claim their first ever Premier League title, with Tottenham not in action against Stoke until tomorrow.

A key part of their successful campaign has been their stout defence; they've conceded just 31 goals all season and haven't conceded in their last five games.

If they can continue to add luck into the mix amongst the league's meanest defence, then nothing can stand between them and silverware in May.

Can anyone stop Leicester winning the title this year?
