Leicester City is closing in on the unlikeliest title win in PL history, but how did a club who seemed destined for relegation morph into a powerhouse? What Leicester have already achieved this season continues to defy belief; this only happens in fiction or kids’ cartoons, not real life.

In March 2015, Leicester—in their first season back in the Premier League after a 10-year absence—were bottom of the table and destined to be relegated. Now the Foxes are 20 places higher and on course to win their first-ever title.

Such a rapid and completely unexpected transformation would be without precedent in the 128-year history of top-flight English football.

This has been another miracle, achieved in a far more difficult era, and Leicester’s success should be celebrated when the title looked to have become the preserve of Russian and Middle Eastern billionaires.

It had appeared that you could only buy the Premier League now, but the east Midlands club are on the brink of proving you can still earn it.
After hauling themselves clear of the relegation zone last year with a run of seven wins from their final nine games, Leicester tapped into that belief and momentum to continue winning this season, but of course, they have done it under a different manager.

Claudio Ranieri has an admirably consistent record of taking some of Europe’s leading clubs close to the summit of their leagues, including AS Monaco, Juventus, Inter Milan, Valencia and AS Roma. It was an inspired appointment, for he has performed the same feat at Leicester, and there could still be the bonus of the title.

Leicester started the season strongly, and carried on winning, breeding confidence and taking them on a run even they could never have imagined.

Playing a 4-4-1-1 or 4-4-2 formation, Ranieiri’s approach has been based on exploiting the stamina and running ability of his side and the raw pace of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez up front.

His side play a pressing game, set a high tempo—with Kante always primed to win the ball back—and seek to break quickly.

They do not want to keep the ball, but rather do something with it—and attack as quickly as possible—which has allowed them to be so prolific in front of goal.

Will this be enough to carry them to the title? Leicester have not fluked it—they have been the best team this season—and if they go on as they have started, they will soon be champions.

If Leicester can play with the same intensity, belief and ruthlessness they have shown in the first 3 games they will not be moved, and the prize will not only be this season’s Premier League trophy, but the greatest story ever told in the history of English football.
