Leicester’s amazing top of the table stat v Manchester United since Sir Alex Ferguson

The Guardian’s Daniel Taylor produced an amazing stat this weekend related to Leicester City and Manchester United.

The Foxes were knocked into second spot on goal difference on Saturday after Man City salvaged a late late 2-1 win over Swansea at the Etihad Stadium.

As for the Red Devils, they suffered another major disappointment in a season full of disappointments when they lost 2-1 away at Bournemouth.

Man United could still win the league: they are only three points off the top, although that could be six points behind the Foxes if they can beat Chelsea on Monday night at the King Power Stadium.

But if United are to win the division they need to somehow make their way into first place, and that brings us to the super stat.

Leicester have spent more days on top (17) than Manchester United (10) since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement two and a half years ago.

Let that sink in for a minute or two…
