Manchester United lose to Leicester city and hand to premier league to Manchester City

Leicester breathed life into their Champions League qualification bid with a 2-1 victory at Manchester United which confirmed Manchester City as Premier League champions.

Courtesy of their win, Leicester are up to third in the Premier League and will qualify for the Champions League with four more points from their remaining two games.

Luke Thomas’ sumptuous first Premier League goal saw Leicester strike first against a much-changed United, who were playing the second of three games in a congested five-day period.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had made 10 changes, but his makeshift United side hit back five minutes later as Mason Greenwood continued his red-hot form with an instinctive equaliser.

Leicester improved drastically in the second half and deservedly regained the lead through Caglar Soyuncu’s towering header, and, despite introducing Edinson Cavani, Marcus Rashford and Bruno Fernandes, there was no way back for United.

United’s defeat confirms rivals Manchester City’s third Premier League title in four seasons, while Leicester climb above Chelsea into third place – eight points ahead of fifth-placed West Ham – after a massive victory in their pursuit of Champions League football.
