Leicester defender Huth: Arsenal's selfie squad inspired title triumph

Leicester City defender Robert Huth admits defeat at Arsenal in February was key to their improbable title triumph.

On Valentine's Day the Gunners overcame Claudio Ranieri's side 2-1 to close the gap at the top of the table to just two points.

And after the game the jubilant Arsenal side posted photos on social media to mark the occasion.

That was enough to light a fire under Leicester as Huth revealed: “For me the key point was when we lost to Arsenal.

"Everyone was celebrating, they were doing selfies. Even though we were still top.

"A few of the lads stuck a few those pictures up and it got the blood boiling. It gave us an extra yard in the next few games."
