BREAKING: Man City win Premier League after United defeat at Old Trafford

Manchester City are champions of England after fine goals from Justin Thomas and Caglar Soyuncu gave Leicester a crucial win over a heavily rotated Manchester United team at Old Trafford.

 

Leicester are now eight and nine points ahead of West Ham and Liverpool respectively, and look good for a Champions League spot after a recent wobble.

 

Leicester took a while to get going – surprising, given how badly they needed a result and how inexperienced United’s side was – but then on 10 minutes, Luke Thomas cushioned home a delicious volley following good work by Youri Tielemans. United, though, responded well, Amad Diallo baring past Thomas before finding Greenwood, who burst by Caglar Soyuncu and slid home his eighth goal in 11 games.

After half-time Leicester stepped it up, dictating against United’s one-paced midfield before, on 66 minutes, a fine corner from Tielemans picked out Soyuncu at the back post, and he escaped Marcus Rashford and Nemanja Matic to power a header past David De Gea.
United huffed and puffed thereafter, but even after sending on their best players, mustered little, so were left with the double-edged sword of handing the title to their local rivals while damaging the European prospects of their fiercest rival. Leicester, on the other hand, can prepare for Saturday’s cup final in good heart.
