So following Spurs draw with Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, the incredible Foxes were crowned champions of England for the first time in their 132 year history.
Leicester City have finally won the Premier League title.
Ranieri is no longer the nearly man, and he has done it on what can be described as a tight budget with two games to spare an astonishing achievement for a club that signed their star striker for just £1 million, compared to Manchester City’s Agüero who cost them a cool £38 million as the second most expensive transfer in Premier League history.
Champions crowned now all eyes are on two important races, the race for the top four and the race to avoid the drop.
In the race for the top four it seems there are you could argue four teams but Arsenal should be safe. Manchester City, Manchester United and West Ham now have to fight it out to see who can make it into the Champions League.
Agüero cost City an eye watering £38 million.
4th Manchester City
Played 36 Points 64 Goal Difference 30
The club built on Mansour’s millions, shaped around a plethora of international stars. Pellegrini heads for the exit at the end of a disappointing season where a team that should be topping the league every season is fighting to retain Champions League status without having to win the trophy itself.
They have scored more goals than any other Premier League side with 68 but a leaky defence has conceded 38 goals, a problem that is hard to fix and with Manchester United and West Ham only four and five points away respectively with a game in hand the pressure is on.
Should they fail to keep hold of fourth the Champions League tie tomorrow becomes all the more significant.
Remaining Fixtures: Arsenal (H), Swansea (A)
Martial has been one of van Gaal’s few successes in the transfer market.
5th Manchester United
Played 35 Points 60 Goal Difference 12
Money spent on players that don’t perform. A disastrous season for the Red Devils, not enough goals, not good enough performances. Louis van Gaal has failed to restore the one great club to the top of the league.
An FA Cup final awaits against the struggling Crystal Palace what little consolation that will prove to be should Manchester United miss out on a Champions League place.With Martial looking to be the only signing that has actually made any progress the future does look bleak for United fans.
It looks as though another summer of signings is on the horizon and possibly the arrival of old rival Mourinho although it may take more than the ‘Special One’ to help this club’s fortunes.
Mark Noble has been key for West Ham this season.
Remaining Fixtures: Norwich (A), West Ham (A), Bournemouth (H)
6th West Ham United
Played 35 Points 59 Goal Difference 17
Unlike the other two the Londoners will be happy with their current position, they have been wonderful but due to Leicester’s title run their big performances have gone unnoticed under the radar.
Mark Noble has been at the heart of this team’s fight and desire along with left back Aaron Cresswell. West Ham are looking like this could be their year to finally be in the Champions League by taking that coveted 4th spot.
The Hammers have a crucial showdown with Manchester United on 10th May which could well decide the race. And with the other two sides having the Champions League and FA Cup to focus on West Ham could have the edge.
Remaning Fixtures: Swansea (H), Manchester United (H), Stoke (A)
Now for the relegation fight and the race to avoid the drop.
Newcastle are having a tough year.
17th Newcastle United
Played 36 Points 33 Goal Difference -25
The historic club have had a horrific season by all accounts, a number of false dawns under McLaren were crushed after suffering some scarring defeats. And it took Benitez a few games to get the ball rolling but now the club are unbeaten in their last four matches.
Two massive games left and with points likely to be tight the game against Aston Villa is vital. It is also notable that Spurs no longer have anything to play for the Champions League is secured.
Going down would signal a backwards step especially considering some of the players in the squad but they are the form side.
Remaining Fixtures: Aston Villa (A) Tottenham Hostpur (H)
Sunderland could be facing the drop.
Played 35 Points 32 Goal Difference -18
Defoe is the reason Sunderland are still fighting for survival, and how crucial might his equaliser against Stoke prove to be?
The relegation fight sees all eyes now on the northeast, Newcastle or Sunderland some have already written off Norwich. Sunderland do have a tough run in but a game in hand over their bitter rivals.
With one great English club destined for the Championship it would be a shame to see another go.
Remaining Fixtures: Chelsea (H), Everton (H), Watford (A)
Norwich have not had much to cheer about this year.
19th Norwich City
Played 35 Points 31 Goal Difference -26
It looked at one point that the Canaries might have pulled away and survived but an upturn in the fortunes of Sunderland and Newcastle quashed that dream.
Watford and Bournemouth both kicked on this season from the Championship, Norwich sadly have struggled to find consistent form. They also have a game over currently safe Newcastle but again have a tricky run-in.
Norwich look down already but a good run could see them pull off a couple of vital wins. Only time will tell.
Remaining Fixtures: Manchester United (H), Watford (H), Everton (A)
What a year it’s been for Jamie Vardy.
So Leicester are champions but plenty to keep you interested for the rest of the season.
