What a season it's been. What a wonderful, wonderful season.

Leicester City's championship-winning campaign comes to an end on Sunday when the club travels south to face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

The storylines are everywhere as Leicester's boss Claudio Ranieri previously managed Chelsea during his only other stint as a manager in England before he was unceremoniously dismissed in 2004. Replacing him was Jose Mourinho who led the Blues to two straight Premier League titles.

It goes beyond Ranieri though as Robert Huth played on those title-winning sides in 2004/5 and 2005/6 and Andy King was once a Chelsea trainee.

The most significant parallel is the fact that Chelsea were champions last season and ironically secured the title for Leicester this season when it drew with Tottenham two weeks back.

Enjoy the last match of the year and share your thoughts on Leicester's fantasticly unbelievable season in the comment section below.
