CAB can authoritatively report that ‘underdogs’ Leicester City have won the English Premier League (EPL) title for the 2015/16 season.
This follows the capitulation of their closest rivals Tottenham Hotspurs who blew a two-goal lead to draw at last season’s winners Chelsea.
Tonight’s (Monday’s) result meant second-placed Tottenham will not be able to overtake Leicester City who have a seven-point lead at the top.
Tottenham’s two-goal advantage came courtesy first-half goals from Harry Kane and Son Heung-min but Chelsea pulled a goal back just before the hour-mark with a Gary Cahill strike from a corner.
A late equalizer from Eden Hazard off a fantastic build-up play orchestrated by the man himself, sealed the draw and the title for Leicester City who battled relegation last season.
The game ended with scuffles between Tottenham players and staff and their Chelsea counterparts. There had been a plethora of it during the match itself.
However, the scenes at Stamford Bridge were secondary to those in Leicester where thousands of fans had gathered to watch the match across the city.
Afterwards, Leicester City fans took to the streets to celebrate the achievement, with children among them waving flags and scarves to celebrate the team’s first title in its 132-year history.
The champions began their ascent in 2009 when they won English football’s third tier League One and second tier Championship in 2014.
Leicester City began the season as 5000/1 outsiders but the run of form that saved them from the drop last season showed no signs of ending.
