And winger Marc Albrighton admitted the stunning transformation under Claudio Ranieri from 5,000-1 title outsiders at the start of this season to champions is almost impossible to take in.
“It is such a fantastic achievement I don’t think it will sink in for a while,” he said. “It might be the summer holidays before this really sinks in.
“Without a doubt we’re happy to win it without playing. Don’t get me wrong, it would have been great to win it at Old Trafford in a fantastic stadium on Sunday but it wasn’t to be. I’m just happy to take it any way as long as it happened.”
Albrighton, whose former club Aston Villa have been relegated, couldn’t bring himself to watch Tottenham‘s previous game against West Brom but was glued to the screen with his team-mates as the action unfolded at Stamford Bridge last night.
“If I’m playing I don’t feel any nerves but as soon as I sit down and start watching a game, it’s a nightmare, it’s terrible,” he added.
