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.

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.”
