There will be something of a party atmosphere at The King Power Stadium on Saturday when Leicester City take to the pitch to play Everton in the Premier League in their first match after having been crowned as champions of the division.

Video of the Day: Leicester City vs Manchester United, February 1976

It’s likely to be over this coming weekend. Leicester City are one win from the Premier League trophy, and it still feels as though quite a few people believe that we are living in a dream at the moment. And that win might come at Old Trafford, from a trip to play Manchester United, so this morning we’re spinning back to the 1970s for an episode of Granada TV’s The Kick Off Match. Leicester City entertain Manchester United on this FA Cup Fifth Round weekend – these matches were actually played on the 14th February 1976, not as per...
