Leicester City are so close to glory, but still so far. Claudio Ranieri’s men will have to wait another day to confirm their status as English Premier League Champions.

 

Will Chelsea put an end to their long rival Tottenham’s title hopes, or will the Spurs edge a step closer to spoiling the Vardy party?

 

From the word go, it was evident that The Red Devils weren’t going to be pushovers, especially with Champions League football on the line.

United hit the front early, after Antonio Valencia sent in a killer cross that exposed Leicester’s defensive cover at the far post. Anthony Martial’s low strike was too powerful for Kasper Schmeichel to stop.

It was clear that United were exploiting the right and left wings, in a set up that saw Louis van Gaal’s men spread wide across both touchline’s. Simpson was caught napping on multiple occasions in the first half and struggled to deal with Anthony Martial’s pace.

Right on cue | the tale of the tape this season has shown us that no mountain is too high to climb for Ranieri’s men.

Their resilience to come back from games after staring down the barrel of defeat has been incredible.

If there was ever a time to score a captains goal it was now, and Wes Morgan answered their prayers in perfect style.

A picture perfect ball from Danny Drinkwater found the head of Morgan to equalize the game.

Social media blew up after a few controversial talking points had fans scratching their heads..

Referee Michael Oliver found himself in the spotlight, after he failed to see a possible red card offense after Marouane Fellaini’s sent a stray elbow on Huth.

The conflict continued, after Mahrez was denied a penalty in the box after this challenge from Marcos Rojo.

Danny Drinkwater was then sent off after receiving a second yellow card. This could be detrimental for The Foxes, especially after his brilliant assist this morning.

In saying all this, the title could be wrapped up tonight if Chelsea can prevent Tottenham from obtaining three points.

Eden Hazard scored his first two goals of the season last week. Not a good time for the man to come back into form for the Spurs.
