And while Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy have earned most of the plaudits, a special nod must be aimed in the direction of Leicester’s faultless goalkeeper, Kasper Schmeichel.

Schmeichel has been sensational this season with a stubborn defence of Robert Huth and Wes Morgan sat in front of him.

And Van der Saar, who also kept goal at Old Trafford, is hoping this won’t be the only trophy Kasper will win this season, hinting that he wants Leicester to win the Premier League:




Leicester took a massive step toward being crowned champions at the weekend as they scraped past a stubborn Crystal Palace.
