Leicester City fans celebrated in style as their side produced a fine performance to emphatically defeat Swansea City this past weekend, but it's safe to say that they would have celebrated even harder after rivals Tottenham drew 1-1 with West Brom at White Hart Lane on Monday night.

Mauricio Pochettino's side headed into the fixture with a great deal of confidence and belief that they could catch the Foxes at the summit of the division. 

Ultimately, though, after Craig Dawson headed home a 73rd-minute equaliser in north London, Spurs players left the field of play feeling extremely dejected.

That's because their title hopes are all but over, with Leicester now requiring three points from their final three games to secure the prestigious honour. 

Indeed, they are one win away and could be crowned champions against Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday.

West Brom result 

But Leicester fans will certainly be honouring Tony Pulis and his West Brom side, who managed to stop Spurs in their tracks on Monday night. 

Tottenham were by no means at their best and the Baggies duly capitalised to leave London with a point. 

Tottenham Hotspur v West Bromwich Albion - Premier League

One rather high profile Leicester fan was once again in great spirits. As you can see below, Gary Lineker couldn't contain his excitement at the full-time whistle and sent a number of tweets. 

You're probably all aware by now, but if Leicester claim the title then Lineker will strip down to his underpants to host the first Match of the Day of the new season. 

After Leicester's brilliant start to this campaign, their former player made the promise, but not even he would have expected to deliver on it.

Understandably, then, after securing a point against second-placed Tottenham last night, the West Brom official Twitter account sent a message to the former England international.

Old Trafford glory 

There's every chance, then, that Leicester will defy the odds and secure the title against United at the Theatre of Dreams on Sunday. 

It won't be an easy task, of course - United are on a high after claiming a place in the FA Cup final and still hold hope of achieving a top-four finish in the Premier League - but Leicester will head into the game full of confidence. 

Jamie Vardy's ban may well have been extended for another game, but there's no reason why they won't be able to produce the goods in Manchester this weekend. 

Will Leicester win the league at Old Trafford? Have your say below!
