Leicester dropped two points at Manchester United on Sunday – and Tottenham fans took to Twitter to express their new-found title hopes.
In an absorbing contest at Old Trafford, Claudio Ranieri’s side drew 1-1 after captain Wes Morgan equalised Antony Martial’s early opener.
But Leicester were unable to secure the win they needed that would have wrapped up the Premier League title and completed their fairytale.
The result gives Leicester an eight-point lead over second-placed Tottenham, who travel to bitter rivals Chelsea on Monday night.
If Spurs can overturn their wretched Stamford Bridge record and clinch victory, they will narrow the gap to five points with two matches of the season remaining. If Mauricio Pochettino’s side fail to beat Chelsea, Leicester will be crowned champions on Monday night.
That’s 2 points dropped 5 more to go, now it’s down to us tomorrow, they still need 2 points COYS
