The coronation of the newest and most improbable of champions will take place at the King Power Stadium on Saturday when Leicester City host Everton. Leicester were confirmed the new champions of the English Premier League after Tottenham failed to pick up a win against Chelsea on Monday.
The Leicester story has captured the imagination of football fans around the world, with their achievement of winning the title seen as one of the greatest in the history of the sport. With the title assured, the pressure will be off on the players and manager Claudio Ranieri, and they can get down to doing what they have done so often this season – entertain the fans.
"I enjoy all the season because from the beginning, I felt something special but I could never imagine this, never," Ranieri, the mastermind behind Leicester's stunning success, told the club's official website. "It is good, we work so hard and I know all the players, clubs and managers work so hard but only one can win and this year it happened to me.
"I fight so hard to achieve all my goals. It is a special moment and I am very happy. I want to thank all my players, staff, the chairman and the fans. They were amazing.
"To win the Premier League is something special and more here in Leicester, more with these fantastic lads. Unbelievable."
Unbelievable will still be the feeling amongst the Leicester City fans, who will probably still be pinching themselves at actually seeing their club confirmed as champions of England for the first time in history. The players will have the "did we just do this" feeling running through them as well, and win or lose, it will be about enjoying the occasion, before Wes Morgan lifts up that heavy Premier League trophy.
Everton will feel like the team that is just there to make up the numbers, considering the attention is completely on Leicester, who will have Jamie Vardy back from suspension, and Roberto Martinez will hope his players play some good football, as he tries to strengthen his case to stay on for another season.
"We know we are facing a team in the best moment of confidence that you could find," Martinez was quoted as saying by the Everton's official website. "For me, they are deserved winners of a competitive league. We will congratulate them but, from that point, focus on performing against them.
"We're facing the champions and when you become a champion of this league, you feel nine feet tall. I expect a historic environment – they've won the league for the first time in their history and it's going to be a well-celebrated achievement.
"But we're going there with a clear idea -- to get three points and perform as well as we can."
