Here are the best jokes as Leicester qualify for the Champions League with a 2-0 win at Sunderland, leaving them seven points clear at the top with five games to play.

Two goals from Jamie Vardy ensured that Claudio Ranieri’s miraculous Foxes will participate amongst Europe’s elite next season, a grand prize that could yet pale in comparison should they go on to clinch the Premier League title.

Nevertheless, it’s probably fair to say that CL qualification would make for an acceptable campaign – not least making it mathematically certain a month before the end of the season.

As Leicester qualify for the Champions League, these are the best jokes:

Leicester HT team talk.
Ranieri: Sunderland have been chatting sh*t, lads
Vardy: You f*cking what?
Ranieri: Yeah, LOADS of sh*t
Vardy: RIGHT

Just think, in 40 years' time you can tell your kids you watched Leicester win the league, and also Borini booting the ball in his own face.

Leicester go 45 points clear of the drop.

On the bright side: there's still a good chance the Premiership Trophy will be lifted at Old Trafford this season #Leicester

Since Liverpool last won the league:

– Peter Schmeichel wins it 5 times
– Has a son
– Retires
– His son wins it with Leicester

Since Wenger last won the league, Ranieri was sacked by Chelsea, waited 12 years, came back and won the league with Leicester.

Overall, I feel apart from Leicester and Spurs both winning, it wasn't a bad point at West Ham.
