Leicester City are edging closer and closer to winning the Premier League title after an incredible season which sees them currently sitting top of the table and seven points clear of their nearest challengers Tottenham Hotspur.

The Foxes are currently on a five game winning streak and take on West Ham United this weekend hoping to stretch their lead at the top of the table and take a step even closer to the Premier League title.

Claudio Ranieri, who has worked wonders at Leicester this season, has been putting his players through their paces this week and today was no different as Leicester need to be in top condition if they are to get one over on the impressive Hammers.

But the players and the manager were not the only ones at training today.

Leicester City vice-chairman Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha flew into the session by helicopter today to check out the players that are turning his side into Premier League challengers.

The work behind the scenes at Leicester has to be heralded as the rejuvenation under the guidance of the King Power group has been remarkable at Leicester

They made tough decisions in the summer, with the departure of Nigel Pearson and the arrival of Claudio Ranieri and have backed the club in the transfer market when needed.

The results are clear to see.
