Leicester cruised to a 3-1 win over Everton at a buoyant King Power Stadium on Saturday Night Football. It was the perfect way to celebrate their extraordinary Premier League title triumph, writes Nick Wright… After Leicesters wild celebrations on Monday night, it was easy to imagine they might take their feet off the gas for the visit of Everton. But on a joyous and historic day in the East Midlands, the newly crowned Premier League champions produced an exhilarating performance to match the carnival atmosphere in the stands.The party had been in full swing for days as the gravity of Leicesters extraordinary achievement began to sink in around the city, and the streets surrounding the King Power Stadium were a sea of celebration in the build-up to kick-off against Everton. Wes Morgan and Claudio Ranieri lift the trophy amid ecstatic scenes at the King Power stadium A rousing performance from opera singer Andrea Bocelli and an emotional speech from manager Claudio Ranieri brought a touch of class to the occasion, and then it was over to Leicesters unlikely band of heroes to continue the party on the pitch.They certainly seemed to enjoy themselves, with Riyad Mahrez and Jamie Vardy at the heart of their thrilling attacking play, just as they have been for so much of this remarkable season. The stadium was a cauldron of noise from kick-off, and there was more reason to celebrate when they broke the deadlock six minutes in. Vardy stars in title party Jamie Vardy scored twice as Leicester celebrated winning the Premier League in fine style. Mahrezs throw-in found Andy King on Leicesters right-hand side, and the midfielder chipped a perfectly weighted pass into the path of Jamie Vardy. The striker exploited the space between John Stones and Bryan Oviedo, and his first-time finish was typically clinical. After missing the last two games through suspension, the FWA Footballer of the Year was making up for lost time.Former Leicester striker Alan Smith would later describe it as the ultimate team performance in the Sky Sports commentary box, and their second goal came less than 30 minutes after their first. Shinji Okazaki found Mahrez, whose trickery bewitched his markers before Leighton Baines tackle inadvertently set up King to dispatch the finish. Ranieri reflects on Leicesters amazing season and says he wants the fans to keep dreaming Its like watching a team on fast forward, noted Jamie Carragher, and there was much more to come as they continued to pour forward after the break. Vardy got his second when he won and converted a penalty in the 65th minute, and the only minor hiccup came when he missed another chance from the spot to wrap up his hat-trick.Vardys double still puts him within one goal of Premier League top scorer Harry Kane on 24, and it was fitting, too, that King played such a pivotal role in the result. The long-serving Welshman is the only surviving member of the side that won promotion from League One in 2008/09, and seven years on from starting in a 3-0 win over Crewe Alexandra, he starred as they brought up 80 points in the Premier League.The 27-year-old is a symbol of Leicesters extraordinary rise, and his goal and assist earned him a well-deserved man-of-the-match award. Andy King was the most important player in the first half, said Jamie Redknapp in the Sky Sports studio. He just sums them up. Morgan admits he felt drained and emoptional after lifting the Premier League trophy Leicesters success, though, is a triumph of the team over the individual, and the philosophy was typified by the all-encompassing celebrations that greeted the final whistle. They have been as one all season, said Redknapp. From Schmeichel to Vardy, every single player has been immense. Its the stuff of dreams.In many ways, this was the typical Leicester performance. The Foxes had less possession (41.6 per cent to Evertons 58.4 per cent) and attempted fewer passes (337 to Evertons 499) than their opponent, and yet they dominated the metrics that mattered. Saturdays Opta stats We round up the best stats and facts from Saturdays Premier League games. Ranieris men have ripped up the rule book this season, and against Everton they mustered a season-high 33 shots on goal over the course of the 90 minutes. Roberto Martinezs side were left dazed and confused, and in truth, they were flattered by the 3-1 scoreline.Carragher described it as the perfect finale, and it certainly felt like a fitting way to celebrate the greatest day in their 132-year history. Teams like Leicester are not meant to have these moments, said Carragher. This is what makes it fantastic. This now gives hope to every player and team out there up and down the league. The impossible is possible.

"Big hits," he said. "Im all about hitting. I dont care who it is." Thats what the Houston Texans are counting on from the South Carolina defensive end after skipping a chance to take a quarterback -- their top need -- with the top pick Thursday night. Clowney was introduced on Friday in Houston, joining a team that features 2012 Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt. Clowney was already known as a top player before that hit in the Outback Bowl. But when he burst through the line and crashed into Vincent Smith, knocking his helmet off and the ball out of his hands in the process, his star power reached another level. Hes hoping to pile up plenty more highlight-reel hits this season, but knows hell have to be careful about how he delivers them. "Thats what I live for is making big hits," he said. "I hope I dont get no fines this year. I might have to dial it down a little." New Houston coach Bill OBrien, who took over a team that hasnt won since Sept. 15, raved about Clowneys many attributes. But one thing stood out to OBrien as he got to know Clowney. "He really talked about how much he loved winning and how winning was important to him," OBrien said. "These are the type guys that were looking for, were looking for team guys, were looking for tough guys, were looking for guys that are going to come in here and understand that theyre part of a team and theyre coming here to work hard." Houston general manager Rick Smith obviously coveted Clowney for his pass-rushing ability, but values hhis attitude perhaps just as much.dddddddddddd "Hes driven, and in my opinion very committed to being an excellent football play, and we need that," Smith said. Clowney doesnt model his play after any player in particular, but he does study many guys to elevate his game. "I watch J.J. Watt, I watch Ray Lewis, I watch Lawrence Taylor before games," Clowney said. "I go out there on the field (and say): Im about to pull a Lawrence Taylor. Im about to pull a Ray Lewis today. I try to take over the game and try to dominate a game and thats what I do." Clowney got a good laugh during Thursdays news conference when OBrien referred to him as J.D. "I guess he has trouble pronouncing Jadeveon," Clowney said. "So I told him: Just call me J.D., man. Were going to keep it simple. And its quicker and easier." This isnt anything new to Clowney, who said people say his unique name wrong all the time. "I ask mom: Where you get that name from? I mispronounce it sometimes," he joked. "Its all right though. Ive got so many nicknames, people give me J., J.D. call me Clowney, 7. Ive got so many names. Just dont call me Clown." Everyone in his family has names that starts with the letter J, and his mother wanted to incorporate his father Davids name into her sons and came up with the hybrid name. Clowney grew up in Rock Hill, South Carolina, which has a population of less than 70,000 people. Hes excited about moving to big city, but is a bit concerned about the traffic in Houston, home to more than 2 million people. "I better get here early," Clowney said. "If I got to be here at 8, Ive got to get up at 5:30-6, get going and get here on time."
