Leicester City have consolidated their position as front runners for this season’s Premier League title, managing to beat Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
Not only did they beat Manchester City, but they also dished out a convincing performance to win the match 3-1, as the home fans looked on in dismay.
This win takes the Foxes to a six-point lead at the top of the table, and Manchester City could now find themselves in the fourth spot if both Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal FC win their respective matches this weekend.
Twitter was abuzz with many positive comments about Leicester City, as the fans were caught up with the underdog trajectory of the Foxes. Here are some of the best reactions from the match.

A sporting miracle is on. Leicester City, 5000/1 to win the Prem League in August, are now 7/4 favourites & 6 pts clear with 13 games left. — Dan Roan (@danroan) February 6, 2016
Saw someone here saying they hope Leicester don’t win because people will beat Arsene with it. What a crazy lens to view it through.

Since L’pool last won the League; Peter Schmeichel signed for Man Utd, won it 5x, retired & had a son who’s about to win it with Leicester.
