Brilliant performance by Leicester as predicted, Burnley were simply never in it, the simple fact is you have three good players who have kept you in the race all season, now they are out injured reality is kicking in.

Bereft of ideas, you have to hope now that you do have enough points in the bag because if anyone catches you you can forget qualifying through the play offs if this is all you have to offer.

Would have thought there would be a full house for today's game. Nearly 6000 short of a capacity crowd.

They were probably trying to get out and the doors were locked.
