Leicester City sinks South Southampton, leads by seven point

Leicester City match-winner Wes Morgan said desire had been the key ingredient after his side sank Southampton 1-0 on Sunday to move seven points clear in the Premier League.

The 32-year-old Jamaica centre-back headed home a cross from Christian Fuchs in the 38th minute to end an 11-month goal drought and leave underdogs Leicester needing 12 points from their last six games to claim the title.

Second-place Tottenham Hotspur had inadvertently left the door open after drawing 1-1 at Liverpool on Saturday and Leicester captain Morgan said that he and his team-mates had been determined to take advantage.

“We saw the (Tottenham) game yesterday was a draw and wanted to make the most of our opportunity. We really wanted it today,” he told Sky Sports at the King Power Stadium.

“I’ve been getting a lot of stick because I haven’t scored all season, so it’s great to shut them up. I was quite ill yesterday, but obviously I wanted to play.”
