Manchester City selangkan menuju gelaran juara setelah berjaya menumbangkan Leicester City dengan kemenangan tipis 1-0 dilaman sendiri.

Serangan tanpa henti dilakukan Raheem Sterling pada minit babak pertama ke pertahanan Leicester namun belum ada peluang menghasilkan gol.

City mengandakan serangan ke gawang Leicester, namun tiada gol yang tercipta hingga tamat babak pertama.

Kembali separuh masa ke dua, City terus mendominasikan perlawanan dan masih buntu untuk menghasilkan gol. Keadaan ini telah membuat Pep Guardiola melakukan perubahan dengan memasukkan Leroy Sane untuk menggantikan Phil Foden.

Ilkay Gundogan memperoleh peluang ke emas untuk membawa City memimpin perlawanan namun sepakan kuat dari luar kotak penalti tidak menepati sasaran.

City akhirnya memecah kebuntuan hasil dari gol cantik Kompany pada minit ke-70. Sepakan kencang yang dilepaskan dari jarak 25 meter gagal diselamatkan Schmeichel.
