Tottenham fans were hoping that Swansea would be able to do them a favour in their game at the King Power Staidum this afternoon.
What they got instead was a defensive horrorshow from captain Ashley Williams that gifted Riyad Mahrez the match opener. You can check it out at the bottom of this article.
Leicester went into the match five points clear of Tottenham having dropped points in their last outing against West Ham.
Leading scorer Jamie Vardy is missing from the game following his red card against the Hammers, and the tension around Leicester before kick-off was palpable.
However they didn't have to wait long before they could relax a little thanks to Williams. The Welsh international skewed a pass straight into the path of Mahrez who strolled into the area and cooly slotted beyond the grasp of Lukas Fabianski.
The goal means that the Algerian, who is up for the PFA Player of the Season award, has been involved in 28 goals during his 38 games this term - and judging by the reaction from the home crowd it was by far his most important contribution.
With Tottenham not in action until tomorrow night, Leicester will be hoping to extend their lead to eight points once more before then, and heap the pressure on Mauricio Pochettino's side.
The Foxes are already guaranteed to finish at least third after Manchester City's draw in midweek against Newcastle - but they'll be hoping for a lot more than that next month.
