English Premier League surprise squad, Leicester City must wait at least one more day for its first English Premier League title.
This is as a result of the draw against Manchester United at Old Trafford. Had the team won the game, the premier league title would have been sealed off. Manchester United led first but the resilient Foxes fought hard to pick a very crucial point.
The team would be crowned champions if second-placed Tottenham Hotspur, which trails Leicester by eight points, fail to beat Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. Spurs would have a tough job as the Bridge is a place where they have not won since 1990.
After the game, Leicester City player Wes Morgan said:
“It was very tough. Manchester United dominated possession and we had to dig in and be resilient.
“It’s a point and it’s a step in the right direction.
“It proved to be an important goal and to score at Old Trafford was a great feeling. It’s not ours until we get two hands on the trophy.”
Leicester finished the game with 10 men after Drinkwater was sent off for a second bookable offence five minutes from time meaning he would miss Leicester’s next game at home to Everton, when victory will secure the title even if Tottenham beats Chelsea.
Before kick-off, the scene was set for a Hollywood finish to this unbelievable football fairytale that the Foxes have displayed. After the game, Leicester full-back Danny Simpson said:
“We knew it was going to be tough.
“The last thing you want is to go 1-0 down early on but credit to the boys, we kept going.
“We’re happy with the point – it would have been nice to have won it here.
“We’ll try and get together tomorrow and watch the game. We’ll keep going and see what happens.”
