Latest table: Leicester inches closer to Premier League title
Leicester City missed a clinch a historic and the most improbable Premier League title at Manchester United on Sunday but is still in great position to lift the trophy. The Foxes, who were fighting relegation last season and were 5,000-to-1 preseason odds to win it all this season, lead the league by eight points and can win it all as soon as Monday.
Still on their tail is North London club Tottenham, which must win out and hope for help from Leicester. Tottenham plays at Chelsea Monday, attempting to win where it hasn't since 1990. Any combination of two points from the Leicester's final matches against Everton and Chelsea will secure the trophy no matter what Tottenham does in its final three matches, though.
