Comments:

League position: 1st Leicester City became the 24th club to be crowned English league champions and the first to win a first top division title since Nottingham Forest in 1978. Claudio Raneri was the eighth manager to win the Premier League while Wes Morgan was the 13th player to lift the Premier League trophy as captain. The Foxes were now unbeaten in their last 11 league games (won eight). Jamie Vardy became the first Leicester City player to score 24 goals in a top division season since Gary Lineker in 1984-85. He missed his 72nd minute penalty by putting the ball well over the crossbar. Had he converted, it would have been his first hat-trick of the season.

Comments:

League position: 12th Everton had now won only one of their last nine Premier League games. 25-goal leading scorer Romelu Lukaku had now failed to score in his last eight league and cup games.
