Many Leicester City fans have responded on Twitter a meme of James Maddison’s celebration the other day, where he is lifted into the air by fellow centre back Caglar Soyuncu.
The Foxes faced Arsenal on Saturday evening, managing to further their gap on the Champions League spaces to nine points, and taking them to an impressive second spot in the league.
From their 12 games so far this season, they have won eight, drawn two and lost two, taking them to 26 points – nine points above fifth-placed Sheffield Wednesday; eight points behind leaders Liverpool. Indeed, Brendan Rodgers really couldn’t have asked for a much better start.
Facing struggling Arsenal was always going to be a good measurement of how far they have come, and whether they could dominate a top team when they are almost expected to.
They managed to fully live up to their expectations with a 2-0 win, and when James Maddison scored the second, his jubilant celebration was fully justified. Caglar Soyuncu could also be seen getting carried away as well, as he managed to lift his teammate Maddison high into the air – which was soon turned into a meme.
The club account tweeted the photo of Soyuncu lifting Maddison but put the background as the Lion King when Simba gets lifted by Rafiki.
Many fans loved to see the meme and responded with their positive messages – as you can read below…

I knew one day a club will think of using social media this efficient; in the way it is meant to be.
