Leicester's Happy Ending

Last season it was a fairytale for lowly little Leicester City – but can they make it a Midlands miracle by snaring back-to-back Premier League titles?

Despite being 5000 to 1 outsiders, Leicester defied those insane odds to clinch the title comfortably and nailed a spot in this season's Champions League.

With a squad costing less than what most big clubs pay for just one player, Leicester barn-stormed through the Premier League big guns last season.

At every test – the Christmas crush of games, the away trips to face the giants of world football in their home fortresses – Leicester confounded the critics.

By the end of the season, the squad of nobodies were household names, from fast-breaking striking sensation Jamie Vardy to playmaker Riyad Mahrez to captain Wes Morgan and keeper Kasper Schmeichel.

Yet just 12 months before, they only escaped relegation by the skin of their teeth.

The exit of coach Nigel Pearson - who had successfully managed to do just enough to dodge the drop - proved the catalyst that changed everything for the Foxes.
