Le­ices­ter’s Im­pos­si­ble Dream – Gary Lineker’s Story of the 2015/16 Premier League Sea­son BBC1, 10.45pm

Macclesfield Express - - LEISURE -

The Match of the Day host looks back at an as­ton­ish­ing cam­paign, which saw 5,000/1 out­siders Le­ices­ter City defy all ex­pec­ta­tions and pick up their first-ever ti­tle. The Foxes be­gan the sea­son as one of the favourites for rel­e­ga­tion, and their ap­point­ment of for­mer Chelsea boss Clau­dio Ranieri to re­place the sacked Nigel Pear­son was seen as unin­spir­ing. How­ever, the Ital­ian brought a dis­ci­plined style of play to the team that helped carry them to the ti­tle.
