Leicester extended their lead at the top to seven points after Wes Morgan’s fist-half header earned them a hard-fought victory against Southampton .

The Foxes skipper powered home Christian Fuch’s cross from the left as Claudio Ranieri’s men moved a step closer to the Premier League title.

However, Saints boss Ronald Koeman will feel aggrieved that the visitors were denied a penalty beforehand when Sadio Mane’s goalbound shot struck the arm of Leicester defender Danny Simpson.

The win means Leicester need four wins from their remaining six games to wrap up the championship.
