Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy hosting watch party for Tottenham match

Monday May 2nd, 2016

Leicester City can win the Premier League for the first time in club history on Monday afternoon, and they will find out their fate from Jamie Vardy’s couch.

Vardy is hosting a watch party for Tottenham–Chelsea, a match that will result in a title for Leicester City if Spurs fail to win, according to The Guardian. Club manager Claudio Ranieri, however, will not be in attendance because he will be on his way back from Italy, where he was visiting his 96-year-old mother.

“They’ve got a tough game away at Chelsea and we’ll be watching that with a close eye on it,” he said. “I don’t think we can ignore this one. I didn’t watch last week, but I think when there is a chance to win the league, like this week, we have all got to watch it.”

Leicester failed to clinch the league title with a 1–1 draw against Manchester United on Sunday but will clinch with a Tottenham draw or loss at Stamford Bridge, where Spurs haven't won since 1990.
