Leicester are on the brink of winning the Premier League.
All season, they’ve been near the top of the league but only in recent weeks have people started to take them seriously.
But, tonight, after Spurs could only draw 1-1 with West Brom, everyone realised that the Foxes will, surely, be crowned Premier League champions. It left them seven points clear with just three matches remaining, needing just one more victory to guarantee the ultimate glory.

Claudio Ranieri’s men were a 5000/1 shot in some places to be crowned champions at the start of the season but are now 1/25 on.
They travel to Manchester United on Sunday, knowing three points would see them wrap up the league but their best opportunity will come at home to Everton the following week.
If the league still hasn’t been won, Leicester will play away to Chelsea on the final day of the campaign.
But many believe the race is finally over and Leicester have completed the unthinkable. Twitter is an amazing place on occasions like this and we picked out the best tweets of the night that celebrated Leicester being on the brink of unthinkable glory.
Unless you’re a Tottenham fan, you will thoroughly enjoy this. So, as Martin Tyler once said: “I swear you’ll never see anything like this ever again. So watch it, drink it in…”
Leicester will be hoping to wrap up the league title by beating United on Sunday but they will have to do it without their top goalscorer, Jamie Vardy.
Vardy was sent-off for two bookable offences against West Ham but has been handed an extra-match ban for his reaction towards referee Jon Moss after he was dismissed.
However, it appeared the Foxes didn’t miss their striker when they thrashed Swansea 4-0 on Sunday.
Even if they don’t beat Manchester United they will be hoping Chelsea do them a favour by beating Spurs the following evening.
After the 1-1 tie with West Brom, Spurs players look devastated but they refused to admit that the title race was over.
Harry Kane said on Sky Sports: “We’ve got to keep fighting but it’s a big blow - we felt like we had to win all out games.
“We’ve got to dust ourselves down and see if Man United can do us a favour. There’s nothing we can do about it, we’ll keep fighting.”
While his manager, Pochettino, echoed Kane’s views: “Everything is possible in football. We have to believe, to fight - winning all our games is achievable.”
But with the Foxes needing just one win, it’s hard to look past Leicester and, according to Twitter, many believe it’s all over.
