The Foxes – Leicester City can clinch the title if they win against United this Sunday, which would leave Manchester United’s hopes of finishing in the top four in tatters.
This would be embarrassing for Manchester United fans as it would be a repeat of 2001 when Arsenal won and lifted the trophy on their grounds.
This would be one of the biggest upsets that could happen this Sunday when the runaway league leaders Leicester face Manchester United at Old Trafford. If Leicester win the match, they win the title. Period! The Foxes can complete their incredible story on Sunday by winning the Premier League title with two games to spare.
Leicester needs just one more victory from their three remaining fixtures following Tottenham’s 1-1 draw with West Brom on Monday.
Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri used to be famous for having new phrases made up about him, none of them flattering. He was the ‘Tinkerman’ who haphazardly rotated his players at Chelsea and moved on to be a ‘Dead Man Walking’ when the club wanted José Mourinho. Come Sunday he could pull the most spectacular upsets of modern football.
Who would have thought we would see this? To add salt to injury, Foxes, who had been viewed as underdogs until very recently will fancy to storm into history books by winning the coveted trophy in a stadium that, in bygone eras was believed to be the natural home of that trophy.
