Premier League: Leicester City look to seal title at Old Trafford

Speed News Desk | Updated on: 10 February 2017, 1:50 IST

Leicester City will look to seal a miraculous league title win when they take on Manchester United at Old Trafford on Sunday, 1 May.

Leicester, who sit at the top of the standings with 76 points from 35 games, need a win to ensure their first ever league title, with second-placed Tottenham Hotspur seven points behind and in action against Chelsea on Monday night.

The Claudio Ranieri-managed side's fairytale title challenge has been termed as one of the greatest ever sporting upsets. And with three games to go, it looks increasingly likely that Leicester will take home the Premier League trophy this season.

The visitors, however, will be without the services of prolific forward Jamie Vardy, who remains suspended for improper conduct during the 2-2 draw against West Ham last month.

On the other hand, United will need a victory to stay in the race for the Champions League places. The Red Devils, who will be high on morale after their FA Cup semi-final win over Everton, are five points behind Manchester City, who will face Southampton later in the day.
