Leicester City win the Premier League as Chelsea draw Spurs: Twitter reacts

Monday night saw Leicester City crowned Premier League champions as Tottenham failed to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. They have a history of failure there, having last beaten Chelsea on the road in 1990. Before the game, we were all somewhat hoping that the title would be decided while Leicester were actually playing.

Celebrities had mixed feelings.

Do you agree? And Chelsea supporters weren't exactly thrilled at the prospect of helping their London rivals close the gap on the fabulous Foxes, either!

We couldn't believe this, either:

Of course, Leicester had Guus Hiddink's side to thank for their part in Monday's coronation. After a failure of a season, Chelsea still had enough left to thwart Spurs ...

... and then came Harry Kane. His 35th-minute goal, Kane's league-leading 25th of the season, came after some superb approach play.

Meanwhile, newly promoted Burnley get some odds we've seen before when it comes to early betting lines for next season's Premier League:

We thought they weren't going to use 5000-1 anymore?

Before half-time, Chelsea had the generosity to be wide-open at the back and allow Spurs to double their lead.

Another delicious through-ball did the damage as Cesar Azpilicueta let Son Heung-min get goal-side.

Hold the phone! Chelsea pulled one back as Gary Cahill thumped in a volley after a set piece.

And then, with Spurs getting nervous and tension rising, Eden Hazard finished off a sumptuous, flowing move with a curling, top-corner finish to make it 2-2!

The irony of Chelsea's comeback wasn't lost on the masses, either. After a season of limping through various tests, they gave their all on Monday night.

And then came the late drama as Spurs took their frustrations out on Chelsea with a string of late, yellow-card-worthy (and red-worthy, if we're honest) fouls in the final 10 minutes. Erik Lamela appeared to stomp on Cesc Fabregas' hand.

At last, the final whistle blew. Chelsea 2-2 Tottenham. Only one thing to say:

Forza, Leicester! Enjoy the title coronation this coming weekend when Everton visit King Power Stadium.

Not to be outdone, Jamie Vardy gave us the chance to see the celebration in his house as the players gathered to watch Monday's title-clinching game:

A couple familiar faces congratulated the Foxes:

Even Captain Morgan got in on the action:
