BPL: Leicester crush Swansea and prove they are here to win!

Leicester City marched towards their first ever Premier League title with a 4-0 thrashing of Swansea City on Sunday.

The win enabled the Foxes to restore their eight-point lead over second placed Tottenham Hotspur and could be just one match away from a historic Premier League title.

If Spurs fail to beat West Brom on Monday, then Leicester will be crowned champions on Sunday if they beat Manchester United away.

Alternatively, the Foxes can wait until May 7 when they play Everton to be assured of the title. This is to say that everything is in Leicester’s hands in what has turned out to be a dramatic season for them.

At this time last season, Leicester were struggling to beat off relegation and theirs is, therefore, a fairy tale story.

Despite the absence of big name signings, the Foxes have still managed to hold their own against the so-called big teams. They have made up for the lack of big names with a sense of unity and purpose that has brought the best in them.

That is why even without their top scorer Jamie Vardy on Sunday, they were still able to bring out an impressive performance as there was someone to fill Vardy’s shoes.

Vardy has scored 22 goals this season but was suspended for Sunday’s match yet it did not seem like Leicester missed him.

Leonardo Ulloa who was preferred to replace Vardy proved himself well with two goals to his name first in the 30th minute and then at the hour mark.
