Leicester City take grip on Premier League after beating Southampton

 
 Football News 24/7
 
What a difference a year makes - almost exactly 12 months ago Leicester City were seven points from safety with seven games to go in the Premier League. Roll on a year and they are seven points clear at the top of the table with just six games left.

This after skipper Chris Morgan scored in a 1-0 victory over Saints.

Claudio Ranieri's side have now won five of their last six matches by a 1-0 scoreline, and after main title rivals Tottenham slipped up with a draw at Liverpool on Saturday, the most unlikely title triumph in Premier League history must surely be considered a probability now.

Southampton remain seventh after a first defeat in four matches.

The bookmakers thinks it's all over and Leicester - who started the season 5000/1 rank outsiders are no bigger than 2/7.
