Wow.

After winning away to Aston Villa on Sunday, Tottenham Hotspur sit patiently awaiting the result of Leicester City's league match with Newcastle United on Monday. If the Foxes had dropped points it would spell very good news for Spurs's title hopes. Unfortunately, thanks to this unbelievable bicycle/overhead kick goal by Shinji Okazaki it wasn't to be.

The lone goal was enough to give Leicester the slim 1-0 win over relegation zone occupiers Newcastle and keep them five points clear at the top of the Premier League table over Tottenham.

What can you say about that great piece of skill? Leicester's fairy tale season continues with one of it's underdog performers on the campaign pulling off amazing goals like that. Spurs just need to keep picking up points and hope that the Foxes slip up eventually.
