Leicester City have moved seven points clear at the top of the Premier League table after their 1-0 victory over Southampton at the King Power Stadium.

Wes Morgan’s first-half header sealed the Foxes another crucial three points. Twelve more and they will be crowned champions of England for the first time in their 132-year history.

Today’s victory was Leicester’s fourth successive 1-0 win - and there’s now real belief that Claudio Ranieri’s men will pull off the seemingly impossible.

This time last year, Leicester were bottom of the Premier League table, seven points from safety with nine matches remaining.

Before a ball was kicked this season, they were the bookmakers’ favourites to be relegated to the Championship. But against all the odds, they look set to win the Premier League title.

Ranieri, however, refused to get too carried away after the final whistle.

"We have to remain calm, concentrate on the matches and make performances,” he said in his post-match press conference, per Leicester City’s official Twitter account. “Match after match. That's our job."
