LEICESTER, England (AP) — Leicester surged seven points clear at the Premier League summit by reeling off a fourth successive 1-0 victory Sunday, with Wes Morgan's first-half bullet header seeing off Southampton.

By netting his first goal of the season, Morgan is a step closer to becoming the first Leicester captain in the club's 132-year history to lift the English topflight trophy next month.

With another dogged defensive display, Claudio Ranieri's team took full advantage of second-place Tottenham.

Now equipped with a seven-point lead, Leicester can afford to lose two of its remaining six games if it wins the other four.

There's already a celebratory atmosphere at a club that a year ago was bottom of the league it now tops, with fans singing "We're gonna win the league."
