Leicester 1 Southampton 0: Morgan helps power Ranieri’s men towards title glory

They were denied a penalty when Charlie Austin’s cross hit Robert Huth on the hand from close range.

At the other end Fraser Forster made a breathtaking stop to prevent Fonte scoring a spectacular own goal before Simpson shot straight at him with the goal at his mercy.

But it was Leicester who were forced to hold on – and they did.

Those who have doubted if they will last the pace of the title race must surely be convinced now.
