It has been well documented that former Leicester City striker Gary Lineker is going to strip down to his underpants for the first Match of the Day of next season if the Foxes win the Premier League title. 

Leicester failed to win the league at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon but need just two points from their remaining two fixtures to claim the prestigious honour. 

In fact, they could secure the title tonight if second-placed Tottenham fail to overcome Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

It's extremely likely, then, that Lineker will host the show in his underpants next term. But what does Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri make of it?

Well, now we know: Ranieri doesn't want to see Lineker in his underpants... 

Following Sunday's draw in Manchester, Lineker caught up with Ranieri and he has revealed what he told him. 

Lineker tweeted: "Met Claudio Ranieri after the game. He said 'Gary, I don't want to see you do MOTD in your pants.' Yes you do, Claudio."

Chelsea v Tottenham 

Tottenham will most definitely still be hoping to maintain their title challenge, but it won't be easy for them to do that in west London. 

Chelsea, who have endured a torrid campaign, will be determined to get one over on their rivals and prevent them from winning the league. 

This truly ridiculous season looks set to have a fairytale ending for Leicester City. 

When do you expect Leicester to win the league? Have your say below!
