For 15 seconds against Liverpool on Tuesday night, Leicester City turned into peak Barcelona.

No, really.

The likes of Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and Shinji Okazaki were all involved as they danced their way through Liverpool’s players with a series of clever flicks and one-touch passes. (Scroll down this page to watch the video).

The move ended when Okazaki went down inside the penalty area and Danny Drinkwater was dispossessed on the edge of the six-yard box by Simon Mignolet.

But for those 15 seconds, it was total football from Claudio Ranieri’s men. Squint a bit and you’d think it was Lionel Messi, Andres Iniesta and Xavi out there knocking the ball to one another.

Leicester keep marching on

Tonight’s match at the King Power Stadium will live long in the memory thanks to Vardy’s Goal of the Season contender. (Watch that goal by clicking HERE).

The England international caught the ball on the half-volley from range and Mignolet stood absolutely no chance.

Vardy then scored a second goal with just under 20 minutes left on the clock to help Leicester keep their three-point lead over Manchester City at the top of the Premier League table.

Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson predicted earlier today that Leicester will win the title if they beat Liverpool, Man City and Arsenal in their next three matches.

One down, two to go…
