    FT: Leicester 1-0 Southampton

    Claudio Ranieri

    "And they woke up and it was all a dream."

    This fairytale doesn't seem like it is going to end that way somehow.

    Claudio Ranieri is warming up his trophy-lifting biceps and the Foxes are still trampling everything before them.

    See you soon.

  2. "50p to watch your chopper mate"

    FT: Leicester 1-0 Southampton

    When you own the club, I guess you can use the pitch as your own personal parking spot.

    FT: Leicester 1-0 Southampton

    This day a year ago this was why Leicester fans were staring at the league table.

    Premier League table April 2015

    Since then Leicester have played 41 Premier League games - winning 27, drawing 10 and losing four.

  4. "I don't want to think about champions"

    FT: Leicester 1-0 Southampton

    Claudio Ranieri

    Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri on BBC Sport: "They had a fantastic chance in the first half, but we worked so hard. It was a normal run by Danny Simpson with the arms close to the body. If the ball does not hit his arm it hits his body.

    "Everyone is expecting something more for us and we are in the cloud, but we have to keep concentrating. 

    "We want to stay there and continue. If the others are better than us then congratulations. We know it will be hard - in the next match Sunderland will be fighting to survive.

    "I don't want to think about champions. I want to focus on the match. There is a chance for us to be champions this season, but we have to be professional."

  5. 'We are dreaming'

    FT: Leicester 1-0 Southampton

    Leicester City

    Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri on Sky Sports: "Clean sheet, three points, step by step. It's fantastic because we know very well Southampton came here with a lot of confidence. 

    "They had a fantastic chance but Simpson made a fantastic save. It was very close to him, he was running and his arm was very close to his body. 

    "I said to the players, it's the chairman's birthday, he needs a special present from us. The skipper came back from a long journey with the national team, it's amazing. 

    "I enjoy it a lot when we maintain clean sheets. We are dreaming, if we fight we can do something and we must continue. It's important to stay very calm and maintain our feet on the ground."

  6. "If it is a penalty and a red card, they don't win"

    FT: Leicester 1-0 Southampton

    Southampton

    Ronald Koeman

    Southampton manager Ronald Koeman: "We started the game badly and lost control, but after 20 minutes we were dominating.

    But for the third match in a row we don't get a 100% penalty - Stoke City away, Liverpool at home, and today two penalties. 

    The big one is when Sadio mane's shot hits Danny Simpson and it is a red card and a penalty. 

    "If it is not a handball, it is a goal. I don't know what they are doing. This is a big match. It is about the Premier League title and our ambitions to play in Europe.

    "The second one was when Robert Huth handled.

    "I don't say they don't deserve the victory, that they don't fight and have amazing spirit, but if it is a penalty and a red card they don't win.

    "I don't think that they are against Southampton, but it is very strange."

  7. Koeman is angry

    FT: Leicester 1-0 Southampton

    Southampton manager Ronald Koeman has just faced up to the television cameras and is incredulous at referee Michael Oliver's failure to give penalties for handballs against Danny Simpson and Robert Huth,

    Full quotes to come.

  8. "We really wanted it"

    FT: Leicester 1-0 Southampton

    Wes Morgan

    Leicester captain Wes Morgan: "We saw the [Tottenham] game yesterday was a draw and wanted to make the most of our opportunity. We really wanted it today. I've been getting a lot of stick because I haven't scored all season so it's great to shut them up. I was quite ill yesterday but obviously I wanted to play."

  9. Leicester's run-in

    FT: Leicester 1-0 Southampton

    Leicester fans

    Leicester's final six games are as follows:

    Sunderland away, West Ham home, Swansea at home, Manchester United away, Everton home, Chelsea away.

    I reckon that - with a lot more love for Claudio Ranieri at Stamford Bridge than there is for Tottenham or Arsenal - three of those are as good as bankers.

  10. Four wins from the title

    FT: Leicester 1-0 Southampton

    Leicester need four wins from their final six games and the Premier League title is their's regardless of what anyone else does behind them.
