Leicester City are refusing to wake up from their dream Premier League title run, after holding on to a 1-0 win over Newcastle United.

There is a reason why Shinji Okazaki is called the Samurai. His unbelievable overhead bicycle kick sent the home fans into absolute delirium. 

WATCH:

Okazaki has often gone under the radar this season, in the shadow of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez. It’s been a blessing in disguise for Okazaki, who has been at the right place at the right time to score crucial match winning goals. 

Foxes manager Claudio Ranieri has his men playing like immortals. Leicester have managed three clean sheets since their heartbreaking loss against Arsenal last month.

With eight games remaining, Leicester are so close to winning the title but still so far. 

They face some tough challenges against Manchester United and Chelsea away, as well as Everton and West Ham at home. 

Tottenham Hotspur F.C on the other hand, have an arguably harder run. The Spurs sit five points behind Leicester, but are still to face Liverpool, Chelsea and Stoke away from home as well as a home fixture against Manchester United. 

This really is one of the most unpredictable seasons we have ever seen.
