Twitter reacted brilliantly as Vardy-less Leicester trounced Swansea
It was meant to have unravelled by now, the balance was always inexorably bound for restoration, because underdogs never actually have their day, but Leicester City are yet to wilt.
Nor will they, not now. With three games to go and an eight point cushion at the top of the table, this team who were installed at 5000/1, having been saddled with a manager dismissed as being too nice to ever truly succeed, now have one hand firmly gripped around the Premier League trophy.
What few sceptics remained, posited that on Sunday, without their suspended lynchpin Jamie Vardy, the Foxes would slip against Swansea and pave the way for Pochettino’s muscular Spurs to rid them of the crushing mantle of champions elect.
Instead, the Welsh outfit were swept aside with a buccaneering aplomb. Vardy sat back happily in the nose bleeds of the King Power Stadium and watched Riyad Mahrez, Leonardo Ullo and Marc Albrighton conjure four fine goals.
Should Spurs falter in any way at home to West Brom on Monday, a win over Manchester United at Old Trafford on May 1 will see Leicester City crowed just the sixth club to ever win the Premier League.
This afternoon Twitter made for some enjoyable reading.
