Leicester City beat Sunderland 2-0 to extend their lead at the top of the Premier League table.

Former Brazilian international full-back Cafu has joined the list of admirers of Leicester City this season.

Leicester have enjoyed a remarkable campaign, and they are now on the verge of completing one of the greatest upsets in English footballing history.

The Foxes were tipped as one of the favourites for relegation before the season started, but they currently sit seven points clear at the top of the Premier League - with just five games remaining.

Leicester have taken almost everybody by surprise this season, and even Cafu was keen to mention the story on social media site Twitter.

Leicester need to win three of their final five matches to confirm their status as Premier League winners.

The Foxes’ nearest rivals are Tottenham Hotspur, but Mauricio Pochettino’s side may have left themselves too big a gap to make up now.

Leicester’s latest win came against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, with Jamie Vardy scoring twice in the second half to secure the there points.

Leicester’s next match comes against West Ham United at the King Power Stadium on Sunday.
