LEICESTER’S PLAYERS CELEBRATED their remarkable Premier League title triumph with a party at star striker Jamie Vardy’s house on Monday.

Claudio Ranieri’s side were crowned England’s champions for the first time in their 132-year history after second placed Tottenham were held to a 2-2 draw at Chelsea.

Tottenham had taken a two-goal lead by half-time but, with several Foxes players watching nervously at Vardy’s house, Gary Cahill got one back for Chelsea and an 83rd minute equaliser from Eden Hazard completed Leicester’s fairytale success.

Christian Fuchs, Robert Huth, Wes Morgan and Shinji Okazaki were all seen driving to Vardy’s Melton Mowbray home, while a number of supporters also gathered outside the gates of the house.

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri’s whereabouts were unknown however.

The Italian said he was going to his homeland to fulfil a lunch date with his mother and would not be back until after full-time, but reports suggested he instead chose to fly home earlier.
