Being 5000-1 underdogs to win the Premier League at the start of the season, Claudio Ranieri’s men have completed a remarkable title challenge that has seen them etch their names forever into sporting history. The title win is Leicester’s first top division title in their 132-year-old history and makes Ranieri the eighth different manager to win the Premier League at the ripe old age of 64, according to Sky Sports.
Leicester City’s match against Everton is their last game of the season at home, at the end of which skipper Wes Morgan will get to lay his hands on the much-coveted Premier League trophy.

Leicester City would want to finish the season in style in front of their own fans, and Claudio Ranieri has insisted that he does not want his team to put their feet off the pedal. Speaking at the pre-match conference, Ranieri said that he can never be fully satisfied and would want to register another win on Saturday, according to The Independent.
“Now I have to come only first, if I want to stay in a place I want to win. Inside me there are two people. One is a very aggressive, I want to win, I won the Premier League but now I want to win on Saturday. I want to win next season and is never satisfied.
Another says ‘Claudio, how many managers are there in the world? Too many. Not everyone can be Sir Alex Ferguson, (Fabio) Capello, (Carlo) Ancelotti, you are having a very good career.”‘
Leicester City will be without Robert Huth for the game against Everton, having been handed a three-match ban after he accepted a charge of violent conduct following a tangle with Manchester United’s Marouane Fellaini last weekend. They will also be without Danny Drinkwater, who received a red card in the same game, but will be boosted by the return of their top-scorer Jamie Vardy, who has completed his suspension following a red card against West Ham.

Meanwhile, Everton boss Roberto Martinez will be hoping his team can put up a good performance against the champions, which could go some way in easing the relentless pressure he has been subject to over the last few weeks. A team boasting several talented players, Everton have fallen short of their target by a long way and currently sit 11th in the table, 33 points behind Leicester City, with two games to go.
While Leicester’s remarkable title win will provide huge encouragement to teams like Everton to push higher in the coming campaigns, Everton’s own shortcomings have been exposed during the season, and Roberto Martinez will hope his team can pull off an unlikely win at the King Power stadium on Saturday.
Speaking before the game, Martinez congratulated Leicester City for the title win but said that their fairy-tale campaign is an exception rather than the rule.
“[Leicester City’s title win] definitely hasn’t changed English football. You analyse all the teams that have been successful. Every team that wins the league, you expect them to do well in the cups as well. You expect them to do well in Europe and have 23, 24 players. It is a fairy-tale but I think it is the exception.”
Everton could expect Gareth Barry and Seamus Coleman back for the game against Leicester City following injury lay-offs, but Ramiro Funes Mori will remain absent on account of the red card he received two games ago.
