A day after Leicester City bore the brunt of criticism for botching a chance and dropping points at home to West Brom, their title rivals capitulated in far worse fashion a day later.

Manchester City were destroyed by Liverpool 3-0, Arsenal fell to Swansea 2-1 at the Emirates and Tottenham were narrowly beaten by West Ham 1-0.

So while the Foxes' dropping of points presented a massive opportunity to the others, they came out of the Premier League's midweek fixtures looking the best of them all. 

Words like "Blown it" and "Claud 9" were used to describe the fortunate turn of events for Claudio Ranieri's side.
