Manchester United were beaten by Leicester City at Old Trafford tonight by a 1-2 scoreline, which assured Manchester City is this season’s Premier League champion.
Manchester United has to play 3 matches in just 5 days which forced Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to trust on his reserve bench for the tie against Leicester City. Ole has made 10 changes in the team from the weekend’s winning team against Aston Villa. Only Mason Greenwood kept his place into the squad from that day tonight.
Leicester City started the game with domination and took the lead within 10 minutes from an excellent volley from Luke Thomas, who scored his debut Premier League goal today. But Manchester United responded quickly as Mason Greenwood netted on the 15th minute. The first half ended in a 1-1 scoreline.
In the second half, Leicester City got the better of the home team. Leicester City defender Caglar Soyuncu headed one into the net to take the lead over the Red Devils. Manchester United tried to get back into the game but failed to find the net.
As a result, United remains at 70 points with 3 matches to go this season, whereas Manchester City already secured 80 points and became the season champion. This is Pep Guardiola’s 3rd Premier League title since his joining at Manchester City.
