I thought about listing my five must-watch games like I do every week, but I don’t want to take the shine off Leicester City this weekend. The Foxes return home to face Everton with the title in their back pocket and the scenes on Saturday at the King Power Stadium should be spectacular. If you missed the title clinching celebration I wrote a blog earlier in the week covering all of it.
The best part of the title for Leicester fans may be receiving a free Singha beer at the Saturday game.
Singha Beer are providing a 🍺 for every #lcfc ticket holder tomorrow!

Here is the game you should be watching this weekend:
1. Everton at Leicester City, Saturday 12:30pm ET
I’m really at a loss for words to describe how fun it has been as a footy fan to watch a rag-tag group of journeymen players bond together and become Champions of England. The sad part of the story will ultimately reside when the big clubs in Europe swoop in to poach the best players off Leicester’s roster. But I hope Ranieri can keep this group together for one more season and perform in the Champions League. Defending your title in England is one of the hardest things to do in soccer, but if Leicester have shown us anything it’s that their nothing ordinary.
