Leicester fan cries on radio as club top Premier League table

Riyad Mahrez had the best chance to open the scoring but saw his penalty saved

Leicester City continue their fairytale form in the Premier League with an away win at Everton which keeps them at the top of the table heading into Christmas.

Nonetheless, the former Chelsea boss seemed to prefer to recall the Foxes' superb win rather than the Premier League crown. We conceded soft goals, two of them from throw-ins - one in our favour and one in Leicester's favour.

Leicester's rise to the top of the table has taken everyone by surprise and even a member of their backroom staff was heard in the Goodison tunnel afterwards admitting he was expecting to wake up and discover their situation had all been in his imagination. But Simpson says the squad are impervious to the title talk from the media and beyond.

The 24-year-old Algeria worldwide, a £400,000 signing from Le Havre, credited his teammates for his recent success.

"It will not be easy and I'd be very happy to get those points", he said. "But still, after the second goal, the fans were supporting us and they give a good example that we have to stick together to come out of this period because that's our objective now".

Having been brought down by Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard for the second penalty, he then set up the unmarked Shinji Okazaki to fire home Leicester's third.

Japan captain Makoto Hasebe helped Frankfurt to their first win in eight as they beat Werder Bremen 2-1 at home, while Hiroki Sakai's Hannover lost 1-0 against leaders Bayern Munich at home and Gotoku Sakai's Hamburg also went down to Augsburg in the same fashion. The first penalty we need to do better, it is an action you ask the referee to make a decision as there is contact but is it a penalty?' he said.
