Gary Lineker Turned An Old Gag On Himself To Break The Incredible Tension At Leicester Today

Gary Lineker Turned An Old Gag On Himself To Break The Incredible Tension At Leicester Today
By Gavin Cooney

Following Spurs' draw at Anfield yesterday, Leicester City could take a giant step towards the Premier League title at home to Southampton this afternoon. Given the competitive permutations, and the fact that Sky broadcast the game live, the sense of tension and occasion was as palpable as it has been at any other stage this season.

For months Leicester hovered beneath the radar, and ever since winning at the Ethiad they have sprung to the front. The focus upon them has been relentless since, with each game bringing with it a racheting up of tension. That reached almost unberable levels today, as we had the first example of the Foxes tempting fate:

Such were the nerves, Gary Lineker was willing to turn an old gag upon himself for some light relief:

But Leicester proceeded to do what Leicester do: they took the lead in the first half - through Wes Morgan - and defended well to win a fourth gamein a row on a scoreline of 1-0. As all arouind them were losing theirs, Leicester kept their heads.

It would have been more comfortable but for the efforts of Fraser Foster, who brilliantly saved a certain own goal as well as remarkable stops from Danny Simpson and Jamie Vardy.

A year to the day since being bottom of the league, Leicester are now four wins away from the title. Drink it in folks. It's happening.
