Robert Huth versus Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar might just be on the horizon.

Leicester booked their place in the Champions League thanks to Sunday’s win at Sunderland and Manchester United’s defeat to Tottenham, and, though the champagne has not yet been uncorked, the Premier League title is Leicester’s to lose.

Huth has had a masterful campaign, assuring the defence alongside Wes Morgan while Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez bang in the goals, and the German defender was on form on Twitter last night as well.

He joked to his near 200,000 following: “Yes! Champions League guaranteed! Better start practicing my Rabonas”.

Well done, Robert. You won Twitter.

Huth's tweet

The 31-year-old’s post received over 25,000 retweets and over 26,000 likes on the social media page and the former Chelsea man has proven himself to be a bit of a joker online.

Just last month he replied to Jonathan Walters after the Stoke striker underwent surgery. Huth said: “let me know when you are are looking to improve the face and i’ll give you my guys number”.

After years spent battling the Premier League’s best strikers, Huth certainly isn’t about to win any beauty contests.

The centre-back joined from Stoke in January 2015 and quickly set about forming one of the stingiest defensive duos in England, alongside Morgan.

He has missed just one league game for the Foxes and, according to former team-mate John Terry, deserves inclusion in the PFA’s Premier League Team of the Year.

Jamie Vardy’s brace helped Leicester inch closer to the title - Claudio Ranieri's side are seven points ahead of Tottenham with five games remaining - and the thought of ending his bogey was etched on Ranieri’s face at full-time.

The Italian left the Stadium of Light in tears and it’s easy to understand why. Ranieri has never won a first division title, finishing runner-up four times, and he probably thought his chance was over when he arrived at the King Power Stadium in the summer.

But he’s performed a miracle at Leicester and is five games away from ending his own personal demon.

Huth worked with the charismatic manager at Chelsea and admitted he has mellowed a lot since his days at Stamford Bridge at the start of the century.

“He has changed quite a lot, in my opinion," Huth told Sky Sports. “He is much more relaxed. I've never seen him laugh so much.

“At Chelsea, with Abramovich coming in, with all the finances changing, the pressure went to focusing on winning titles immediately.

“Everything was a lot more intense, even him as a person. Here it is not the opposite, but it is relaxed. Maybe it is something he has learned through age. I was much more intense when I was younger.”
