Leicester failed to wrap up the title but their fans didn't seem to care


Everyone turned up for a title party at Old Trafford that never happened.

When Wes Morgan cancelled out Anthony Martial's early opener, it seemed destiny was again smiling on the most unlikely Premier League title pursuit ever.

Certainly Leicester fans in this pub thought so.

And the Foxes were the liveliest team from then on, but there was an unmistakable nervous energy that was compounded as Leonardo Ulloa and Riyad Mahrez spurned the best of their chances.

Not that the Foxes fans at Old Trafford seemed to care, as they showed an endearing sense of perspective.

The travelling fans sung their hearts out for the most part - there were some nervous lulls, but can you blame them? - as they willed their title dream to come true in a stadium famed for granting such wishes. Just not for the away team.

And so it proved. In the end, they had to hang on for a point after Danny Drinkwater saw red late on.

Leicester fans will now nervously watch Tottenham's trip to Chelsea on Monday night when any result for the Blues will see them hand their champions tag over to the Foxes.

And it seems like the Foxes will have the rest of the Premier league behind them - apart from Spurs - after the reaction of United following the full-time whistle at Old Trafford.

Rory McIlroy was even happy for United to concede the title to them today.

And United fans agreed.

Well, most of them.

But for now, Leicester fans must wait at least another 24 hours.

They can hardly wait.
