Manchester City are within one win claiming back to back Premier League titles after they defeated Leicester City 1-0 on Monday at the Etihad stadium.
A long range strike from Vincent Kompany in the 70th minute secured a crucial win for Pep Guardiola’s side.
Leicester City paraded Wilfred Ndidi for the entire duration of the game while Kelechi Iheanacho came on for James Maddison with ten minutes left to play.
Phil Foden who was the only change made by Guardiola from that most recent outing and the midfielder tested Kasper Schmeichel 11 minutes in with a half-volley inside the box.
Bernardo Silva was next to force a save from Schmeichel on the stroke of half-time with a low drive.
With 20 minutes to go, and Leicester looking threatening on the counter, up stepped Kompany with a 25-yard bullet into the top corner of the net – his 20th goal in all competitions for the club, and one of the most memorable of the lot.
Manchester City will become the first side in a decade to win the Premier League title in back-to-back seasons if they beat Brighton & Hove Albion on the final day of the campaign, as Liverpool – who host Wolverhampton Wanderers the same day – are a point worse off.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
