On the brink of a remarkable Premier League title triumph, Leicester City supporters have shown their humorous side by unveiling a 'We Are Staying Up' banner in the away end at Old Trafford.

The Foxes were a massive 5,000-1 to win the title at the start of the season, having finished in 14th place last term, and should they win the league it will be most unlikeliest of victories in the English top flight history.

A win at Manchester United today, and they will be crowned champions.

"Once in a life it can happen," Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri said on Friday as he contemplated the prospect of Leicester winning their first top-flight title. "That is football. Once every 50 years a little team with less money can beat the biggest."

Only Tottenham Hotspur can catch Leicester, but they will be knocked out of the equation if 20-times champions United succumb to Ranieri's relentless side today.
