'We must make the dream a reality'

Leicester 4-0 Swansea

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri: "It’s a fantastic performance. Without Jamie Vardy everyone gave something more.

“We knew we had some difficulties but with the fight of everybody we had a good match.

“I asked for this kind of performance. I was delighted with Ulloa and Schlupp. They haven’t played a lot but I told them ‘now we need you’.

“Mahrez is the light and when he is switched on the King Power is fantastic.

“We know it will be tough because Tottenham are a good team but we will fight until the end.

“We dream and now it is important to make the dream a reality. It is important to fight for that reality.”

'It is all in our hands'

Leicester 4-0 Swansea

Leicester forward Riyad Mahrez: "Now there are three games to go and we are closer but everyone is working for each other and it is a great team spirit.

“In this team we don’t need just one player. We are really together with our team spirit and we work for each other.

“Sometimes I score, sometimes Vardy scores and sometimes Leo scores but we are a team.

“It is always a pleasure to play here. The fans are unbelievable.

“We are closer now but there are still three games to go and we have eight points more so it is all in our hands now so we have to stay focused.

“We are getting in the helicopter now with the others and we will see what happens tonight.”

Leicester striker Leonardo Ulloa: "I’m happy because this team is unbelievable.

“We played so well. We miss Jamie Vardy because he is a good player but we can still play well and I enjoy playing with this team and with these team-mates.

“I am always ready to play when I can help the team and I always work for this.

“I am happy because I could score two goals and help the team.

“We played a really good game and it is a massive three points.

“It is good for me because I needed confidence and after the last goal I was more confident, but I am more pleased about the three points.”

Awards season

Leicester's King Power Stadium is empty of fans now, but the chairman's helicopter is due to land on the centre circle soon before whisking the lads off to the PFA awards.

Leicester trio Jamie Vardy, Riyad Mahrez and N'Golo Kante have been named on the six-man shortlist for the PFA Players' Player of the Year award.

They are joined by Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil, West Ham midfielder Dimitri Payet and Tottenham striker Harry Kane.

Yousouf, London: What a season for Leicester, for underdogs, for the romantics of football. We can pick Mahrez, Vardy, Kante but the whole team play as a team even the ones on the bench. I can't imagine the spirit of this team. This is David versus the Goliath of money football.   

On his way out?

Swansea boss Francesco Guidolin is asked if he can look at what Leicester have done and get his team to do the same.

He said: "I don't know. This is not my problem."

'Be hungry, be solid,' he says. 

Full reaction to come.

It was not a good showing from Swansea at all though. Just the one shot on target all game.

Isaac, London: A year ago in Mourinho's post-title interview he was asked about who won the title for Chelsea and he said the squad players when called upon. Remy, Mikel, Cech in important moments. Same for Leicester, the entire squad has won games. Ulloa, King Schlupp, and unheralded regulars like Okazaki and Albrighton. This depth is more than expensive players. It's a mentality that is trained, and one Chelsea lost and Leicester learned.

David Ljunggren: Mahrez just said "It was a difficult game", which shows he's delusional as well as gifted.

'That was massive for Leicester'

Chris Sutton

Former Norwich striker on BBC Radio 5 live

"I thought today was massive for Leicester because had they slipped up against Swansea - you'd probably only rather play Aston Villa right now - then the doubt really would have started to creep in. But they will go on and win the league now." 

I'm pretty sure Tim text in on Monday night too. I still don't really understand that...

Tom, a title race like this is a good time to use the American concept of the 'Magic Number'. Leicester's Magic Number is 5 - meaning that any combination of 5 points gained by Leicester OR lost by Spurs will send the title to the King Power - regardless of games in hand or goal difference or anything.

"People are talking about how Tottenham could take all points from their last games. But so could Leicester. They've only lost three games! 

"They could go to Old Trafford and blow Manchester United away next week. They are rampant. They're running away with it - eight points clear."

'The best ever'

Robbie Savage

Ex-Wales midfielder at the King Power Stadium for 5 live Sport

"Leicester winning the league would have to be the best achievement in domestic sport. Ever. It is that incredible. And I don't think we'll see anything like this ever again.

"I just can't believe it. Everybody here is the same from when I was around; the kitman, the people holding the doors open. But on the pitch they are transformed. It's one of those moments when you think: I was there."

Leicester need five points to win the title. And that is only if Tottenham win every single match.

Robbie Savage

Ex-Wales midfielder at the King Power Stadium for 5 live Sport

"Leicester have answered Tottenham's 4-0 victory at Stoke with their own 4-0 win today. A brilliant, brilliant performance. Ulloa coming in for Vardy got two goals, resolute defending, another clean sheet. 

"Eight points clear. Over to you Spurs."

It looks like another emotional day for Claudio Ranieri on the sidelines...

There is an air of joy mixed with slight disbelief at the King Power. A surreal season...

'Swansea have been blown away!'

"Fantastic play from Gray. He sailed past player after player on his way to chipping towards the far post. The three subs combine, Swansea woeful, Leicester are going to win the league. Can you believe it?!

"This was the game I was nervous about. But Swansea have been blown away. Positive, exciting. And it looks like another clean sheet."

GOAL - Leicester 4-0 Swansea

Marc Albrighton

I don't think I even told you that Marc Albrighton had come on, but he has smashed in a fourth goal for Leicester. Wonderful play too down the right as Demarai Gray skins his full-back and sends in a cracking cross, Andy King heads it down, Gray meets it on the bounce and though Lukasz Fabianski is equal to his shot, he can do nothing  about Albrighton's emphatic follow-up.

Booosh! Into the top corner.

'We're gonna win the league!' sing the Leicester fans with plenty of justification.

It is not over yet though. Leicester's next three games look tough on paper.

GREAT SAVE!

Leicester 3-0 Swansea

Andy King has always had an eye for goal and he almost makes it four, galloping up on the overlap to get on the end of a counter attack but he sees Lukasz Fabianski save his first attempt before curling over the loose ball.

King must be the first player to win League One, the Championship and [potentially] the Premier League?

Especially with the same club. Definitely with the same club.

Ben Jones, Essex: Am I right in saying Leicester are eight ahead and Spurs still have 12 to play for? Call me the eternal optimist or completely crazy if you like but it's not over yet! United & Chelsea away aren't a guaranteed six points. Stranger things have happened...

Martin Barrow: Kaspar Schmeichel likely to win Premier League just 17 years after dad Peter... a record?  

Nick Green: Tactically brilliant from Ranieri today. With the absence of Vardy, Sclupp has provided pace and power.

Ryan: Do you think Okazaki runs the bath for the rest of the team?

Leonardo Ulloa is now in a bit of strife, he's holding his back after a heavy landing. Leicester need him to fit and firing, especially if Jame Vardy ends up with a lengthier ban. 

Ulloa has some treatment but he's back out there. Worth the risk? 

Leicester 3-0 Swansea

The first lull in action and atmosphere. Maybe the fans have sung themselves hoarse. Swansea bring on Ki Sung-yueng.
