These were the best Leicester title favourites jokes as Claudio Ranieri’s Foxes went 5 points clear at the top of the table with a 3-1 win at Man City.

At the start of the season you could have got odds of 5000/1 for Leicester City to win the league, but they certainly looked like champions as they swatted aside their title rivals at the Etihad in Saturday’s early kick-off.

Now, with Leicester title favourites, the doubters are starting to number fewer and fewer. Nevertheless, there were jokes:

One good thing if Leicester win the PL – people will finally learn the most confusing thing about them – it is pronounced "lester".

Seems everyone "knows someone" who backed Leicester at 5000/1. I'm not buying it. NOBODY did. Maybe 1 or 2 diehards for a joke.

Not everyone was a fan, though…

the biggest downside to Leicester winning the league is that no one will be angry. and that's not fun

The longer Leicester keep up this joke, the harder it'll hit their fans when they slip. It's time to do the right thing and lose next week

Leicester deserve to win the PL as the team who most embody the English values of taking their racism abroad, transphobia, and Kasabian
