FULL-TIME

Leicester 5-1 QPR

And that folks, is that.

A truly terrific performance by Leicester which sums up their last two months of the season.

It is an afternoon that also sums up QPR's season - awful.

They were second best all day long and were heavily beaten.

A summer of content for Nigel Pearson, a summer of discontent for Chris Ramsey.

And with that, we're signing off.

Head here for more live text commentary of today's games.

GOAL

Leicester 5-1 QPR (Kramaric)

Andrej Kramaric fires in from inside the penalty area after QPR make yet another defensive error, failing to deal with a routine long kick from Foxes keeper Kasper Schmeichel.

This really is horrible for Rangers. They have been completely outplayed and outclassed by a side they came up with from the Championship last season.

Leicester 4-1 QPR

Leicester continue to dominate here and the King Power gets ever-more nosier.

The fans on all four sides are on their feet and clapping. It must be music to the area of Nigel Pearson, and incredibly annoying for a very deflated Chris Ramsey.

SUBSTITUTION

Leicester 4-1 QPR

Karl Henry makes way for youngster Brandon Comley for the final 10 minutes.

And why not, Chris Ramsey has to plan for next season now. It's going to be an interesting summer at Loftus Road with one heck of a clearout expected.

Hero

And here he is scoring and celebrating that goal.

SUBSTITUTION

Leicester 4-1 QPR

The crowd rise as one to salute Esteban Cambiasso as the Argentine makes way for Danny Drinkwater.

The club's player of the year, who scored a lovely left-footed goal today, has yet to decide whether or not to stay next season. It is clear what the fans want him to do. They love him.

Cambiasso, signing of the season? Discuss.

Leicester 4-1 QPR

Some news in from the Britannia Stadium. Steven Gerrard has just scored for Liverpool. On his last ever appearance. Of course he would.

Pity Stoke were already five goals up...

Leicester 2-0 QPR

A decent pic of Marc Albrighton's strike just before half-time.

For QPR, that must feel like an awful long time ago now.

SUBSTITUTION

Leicester 4-1 QPR

Great reception for Jamie Vardy as the England man - bet the lad will never tire of seeing that - is substituted in the 65th minute.

It's a chance for Andrej Kramaric to make an impression. He gets a good reception as he saunters on and will be desperate for a second Premier League goal.

Leicester 4-1 QPR

The Leicester fans in the stand have unfurled a banner saying 'The greatest escape ever'. They could be right.

Victory here - and let's face it, Leicester are going to win - will be seven wins in the last nine matches.

What a turnaround from a team bottom of the table and seven points adrift heading into April. Astonishing.

GOAL

Leicester 4-1 QPR (Austin)

Charlie Austin with a terrific header. Joey Barton gets the assist, chipping the ball into the area and Austin rises highest to guide the ball beyond Kasper Schmeichel and net his 18th goal of the season.

Leicester 4-0 QPR

"You fear for QPR every time Leicester put the ball into their area now," says Simon Brotherton on Match of the Day.

Nail on head. This could be a rout.

GOAL

Leicester 4-0 QPR (Cambiasso)

Yes, definitely game over. Esteban Cambiasso drills in a low shot from 12 yards, which thunders in the net and the King Power Stadium goes berserk.

GOAL

Leicester 3-0 QPR (Ulloa)

Leonardo Ulloa, with his 13th goal of the season. The striker doesn't know much about it, Wes Morgan's deflected drive from the edge of the box hitting the Argentine in the midriff and nestling in the bottom corner. Game over?

Leicester 2-0 QPR

A very dodgy offside decision goes against Reece Grego-Cox, who latches on to a deflected shot six yards out and with only the keeper to beat - only to see the flag go up (wrongly).

But given the teenager missed the target, he'll no doubt be rather relieved the linesman made an error and spared his blushes.

Leicester 2-0 QPR

We're under way again at the King Power and the hosts have made a change.

Rory Delap replaces Marcin Wasilewski, who we think has gone off with a shoulder injury.

HALF-TIME

Leicester 2-0 QPR

It's tough being a goalie.

The half-time break has been dominated by replays of Leicester's first goal, when Alex McCarthy fumbled Riyad Mahrez's shot, allowing Jamie Vardy to score.

It really was a shocker of a mistake from a man only in the side because of an injury to Rangers' usual number one Rob Green.

HALF-TIME

Leicester 2-0 QPR

It is fair to say that Leicester are flying at the moment.

The Foxes have earned 19 points from their last eight matches, having earned the same number of points from their first 29 league fixtures.

On top of that, Nigel Pearson's men have kept five clean sheets in their last six matches - as many as they had managed in their previous 31 league games.

And, get this: they are on the verge of winning three consecutive top-flight home matches without conceding a goal for the first time since January to February 1977.

This could be quite a day for the Foxes. They're halfway there.

HALF-TIME

Leicester 2-0 QPR

Simon Brotherton

Match of the Day commentator

"There was a celebratory mood among the crowd before the match and there is at half-time too.

"It has been Leicester dominating from the first whistle and QPR have an awful lot to do."

Very true. Barring a miracle, there is only one winner here.

GOAL

Leicester 2-0 QPR

Marc Albrighton smashes the ball into the net from 12 yards. His second goal for the club.

A break down the left flank, Schlupp crosses, QPR fail to clear their lines, and Albrighton is allowed to run unchallenged into the box and hammer the ball in.

Great for Leicester, awful viewing for QPR fans. Such a bad goal to concede, which perhaps tells you all you need to know about Rangers' season.

Leicester 1-0 QPR

Jamie Vardy enjoyed his goal.

And so too will have Roy Hodgson. Vardy, remember, has been called up for England's games against the Republic of Ireland and Slovenia next month.

CLOSE!

Leicester 1-0 QPR

That was the very definition of missed by a whisker.

Matty Phillips, with QPR's first real effort of note, thunders a shot from 20 yards just past the post with Schmeichel well beaten.

Unlucky. Great effort. Will it gives Rangers some confidence? Hope so, from a neutral's point of view it has been too one-sided so far.

CLOSE!

Leicester 1-0 QPR

Jamie Vardy almost doubles his tally for the afternoon, meeting Marc Albrighton's right-wing cross and planting a firm effort goalwards - but keeper McCarthy atones for his earlier error by stopping the ball in the nick of the time.

That should make McCarthy feel better. It's probably been a long 20 minutes since that Foxes goal.

Leicester 1-0 QPR

Half chance for Leonardo Ulloa. After good play from Marc Albrighton on the right, the Foxes striker hooks a difficult chance on to the roof of the net.

Leicester still very much in control. QPR chairman Tony Fernandes and director of football Les Ferdinand are looking mighty gloomy up in the stand - though that's probably because the free beer voucher wasn't extended to the away contingent...

Leicester 1-0 QPR

And here, perhaps, is the reason why. Remember that free beer voucher the owners are handing out to home fans today...

Go on chaps, drink up.

Leicester 1-0 QPR

Here's the scene at the King Power stadium, which kind of says it all really. The atmosphere, helped by that early Vardy striker, is bouncing.

Leicester 1-0 QPR

Defender Nedum Onuoha shows exactly why he's a defender.

He provides QPR's first shot at goal, but misses the target by about 35 yards. Not surprisingly, home keeper Kasper Schmeichel doesn't bother moving.

Leicester 1-0 QPR

Just before that Vardy strike, there was a slightly embarrassing moment for Reece Grego-Cox.

The 18-year-old, making his full Premier League debut, strode towards the edge of the box and was primed to shoot. He was dreaming of a fairytale start to the game. He brought his right foot back, went to smash it and... his left foot slipped, he hit the tamest of shots which involved the ball rolling gently sideways, and then fell to the ground.

Not one he'll enjoy watching back on Match of the Day later.

Leicester 1-0 QPR

Was there a hint of offside about that goal?

Vardy looked straight at the linesman after knocking the ball home, as if fearful it would be ruled out. But the replay shows the linesman got it spot on - onside.

GOAL

Leicester 1-0 QPR

And speak of the devil, Jamie Vardy scores from close range.

It's a horror moment for keeper Alex McCarthy. Replacing the injured Rob Green, and making only his second start of he season, the 25-year-old spills a tame-looking shot from Riyad Mahrez and Vardy is there to smash the ball into the net.

What a way to celebrate that England call-up.

On the up

Leicester 0-0 QPR

Jamie Vardy should have an extra spring in his step this afternoon.

The 28-year-old was

called up to Roy Hodgson's England squad this week, less than three years after playing in Fleetwood Town's Conference title-winning side of 2012.

Vardy, who became the most expensive non-league footballer when he

signed for the Foxes for £1m in May 2012, has been included in England's squad for the games against Republic of Ireland and Slovenia in June.

The frontman played a key role in the Championship-winning side of 2013-14 and has been a regular in the Foxes' remarkable end-of-season run which has seen Nigel Pearson's side retain their Premier League status with a game to spare.

Leicester 0-0 QPR

Nasty moment for Riyad Mahrez as the Leicester man takes a tumble and appears to pull a muscle in the groin area.

He looks in pain - as you would be if you hurt your groin; no man wants that - but gets to his feet after a couple of minutes of treatment. It's good news for the Foxes, for Mahrez has been a key man this campaign - 25 league starts and four goals.

Leicester 0-0 QPR

It is all Leicester early doors.

With the club's player of the season, the evergreen Esteban Cambiasso, pulling the strings, the Foxes are dominant.

Jeffrey Schlupp smashes a shot into the side netting. Close but no cigar.

The din still hasn't died down, the fans are loving every minute of this.

'Last place QPR want to be'

Leicester 0-0 QPR

"This is akin to a celebratory homecoming fro the Leicester players. The home fans have a chance to thank their heroes," says BBC Match of the Day commentator Simon Brotherton.

"For QPR it is the last place they want to be having a look at what might have been for them. Getting back out of the Championship is easier said than done."

CLOSE!

Leicester 0-0 QPR

Leonardo Ulloa, Leiester's 12-goal top scorer, comes so close to an early opener but curls his shot inches wide after breaking into the box. Almost the perfect start.

Leicester 0-0 QPR

And we're off. The King Power in bouncing, that free beer the club has handed out clearly having an effect.

The pitch looks terrific - let's hope the match is too.

Pressure's on

Leicester v QPR (15:00 BST)

Sorry for this QPR fans ... though it does prove that there is something at stake today for Rangers, who, presumably, will be mighty keen to avoid having their own dubious Premier League claim to fame.

qpr
BBC Sport

Leicester v QPR (15:00 BST)

QPR won the reverse fixture in November 3-2, with Charlie Austin scoring the winner.

The only previous Premier League meetings between the sides came in the 1994-95 season; Rangers won 2-0 at home and drew 1-1 away.

'2-0'

Leicester v QPR (15:00 BST)

Mark Lawrenson has done his usual predictions for the BBC Sport website, which

you'll find here.

He reckons today's encounter will end 2-0 to the Foxes.

"Leicester's survival is a fantastic achievement," said Lawro. "Foxes manager Nigel Pearson has had a difficult campaign for all sorts of reasons but, like his players, he came through."

Tale of two teams

Leicester v QPR (15:00 BST)

BBC Match of the Day commentator Simon Brotherton with some thoughts ahead of today's game:

"After the great escape was completed last weekend at Sunderland, it's a chance for Leicester fans to welcome the team home and celebrate Premier League survival.

The supporters deserve it too, after backing the team and the manager throughout, while creating a constantly noisy and positive atmosphere during recent home games.

In stark contrast, this fixture doesn't offer much for any QPR fan thinking of heading up the M1 for one last Premier League game.

It promises to be a summer of change at Loftus Road, with head coach Chris Ramsey - already appointed on a permanent basis - and director of football Les Ferdinand ready to start a major clearout."
