Leicester City will be in second place in the Premier League in their last international break in 2019.

The foxes celebrated their eighth victory of the season on Saturday and defeated Arsenal 2-0 thanks to goals from Jamie Vardy and James Maddison.

With this result, they have outperformed Manchester City – and they remain above the reigning league champion, after Pep Guardiola's team fell at the Anfield on Sunday (1-3) in a big fight for the title.

Brendan Rodgers & # 39; Leicester is currently three points better than the legendary class of 2015/16, which took the Premier League crown under Claudio Ranieri.

They are eight points behind leaders Liverpool, 26 points ahead of third-placed Chelsea and one ahead of Man City.

The foxes will face City and Liverpool in two consecutive games on December 21st and 26th.

And in social media, many have spoken up to win the title.

Chris Sansome: Second in the third international break. Never thought we would statistically have a better start to a top season than 15/16. Made even better by the fact that half of our games have played against teams from the top 7 last season

@GrahameLetts: Two horse races now … we'll be in the lead until Boxing Day night

Josh Fitzsimons: I can not wait to get Liverpool's title at the end of the season #lcfc

Ed Buchan: Given that Man City seems to have bottled it, it's probably up to the mighty city of Leicester to challenge Liverpool in the 2019/2019 Premier League
