Leicester City 4/1 to win Premier League title after beating Liverpool
Leicester remain top of Premier League table after Jamie Vardy scores wonder goal
February 3rd, 2016
Can they win the title this season? Leicester were among the favourites to be relegated in August, although an emphatic win against Sunderland on the opening day lit the blue touch paper for a wonderful campaign which shows little sign of slowing down.
Tuesday night’s 2-0 win against Liverpool keeps the Foxes two points clear of Manchester City and BetVictor now offer 4/1 about Leicester winning the 2015/16 Premier League title.
It certainly appears to be a possibility based on the fact that the Midlands team have lost just two matches all season and their defence is now shutting out the opposition on a regular basis.
Saturday’s trip to the Etihad is the latest test for a side who have passed most with flying colours and Claudio Ranieri was full of praise for match-winner Vardy who scored an amazing opener before doubling City’s lead.
“It was an unbelievable pass from Mahrez and unbelievable what Vardy did,” Ranieri said. “He watched the ball arriving, watched the opponent and watched the keeper. He looked at the keeper out of the goal and hit it. It was unbelievable, amazing, fantastic. That goal opened the match.
“Now it is one month more or less since he restarted training. Before that he didn’t train. He played matches without training and that’s not easy,” the Italian said. “He continued to score but slowly he slowed down. Now he is refreshed, he is a new Vardy, he presses a lot and he scores goals. He is good.
“We have to think about what a great performance we did against Liverpool. It was amazing,” Ranieri said. “We beat a very good team who were very well organised. Klopp has done a very good job so far and I’m sure next season will better. But we made a fantastic performance. We pressed everywhere and didn’t give the Liverpool players time to think.”
