Premier League Table: Manchester United vs Leicester City: Leicester City has defeated Manchester United to go a spot above Chelsea. The headlines are made by Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City side who have won their 5th Premier League title.
It was a massive win for Leicester City as well who further embark their position in the top 4 to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season.
Manchester United started with a very young lineup. Williams, Tuanzebe, Bailly came in place of Maguire Lindelof, and Luke Shaw. Juan Mata and Van de Beek also started. The in-form midfielder Mason Greenwood made another start for the Red Devils.
Brendan Rodgers made just two changes to the side beaten by Newcastle on Friday night. Ayoze Perez and Luke Thomas come in, with James Maddison and Ricardo Pereira dropping to the bench, as expected.
Manchester United vs Leicester City: Leicester City take the lead
It was Luke Thomas’ first Premier League goal and he may never score a better one.
Leicester builds well down the right flank, where Youri Tielemans makes a clever run before floating a cross to the back post. He had a tight angle to goal but with a sublime finish, he smashed a first-time volley across goal into the corner to give the visitors the lead in the 10th minute.
Manchester United vs Leicester City: Man United equalize
It is the youngster in form Mason Greenwood that brought back a goal for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side when they needed it the most.
It was United’s first attack and it took just 5 minutes for them to equalize. Amad Diallo squared a wonderful ball for Mason Greenwood on the edge of the box who after creating space to shoot drills a tidy effort across goal into the bottom corner.
Man City’s five Premier League titles have all come in the past 10 years!

Manchester United vs Leicester City: Soyuncu wins the match for Man Utd and the Title for Man City
Straight from a Marc Albrighton corner, Caglar Soyuncu peels off Rashford, leaps higher than Nemanja Matic, and nods Leicester back in front at the back post in the 66th minute.
That made up for his disaster performance against Newcastle the other night if the Foxes hang on to this.
