Leicester City in touching distance of Premier League title

 Football News 24/7
Leicester recovered from an early set-back to level with Manchester United in the first half at Old Trafford on Sunday. Despite clear penalty claims for both sides the game remained all square.

The point garnered against Manchester United sees leaders Leicester extend their lead in the title race to 8 points with two games to go.

If rivals Tottenham - the only team that can catch them fail to win at Chelsea on Monday, then Leicester will be crowned Premier League champions without kicking a ball

Otherwise, Ranieri's side - 5,000-1 outsiders at the start of the season - will have the chance to seal the title in front of their own fans when they play Everton next Saturday.

In essence Leicester would have to lose their two remaining games and Spurs win all three for them to lose a grip on the trophy that is almost certainly half-way to the KingPower Stadium.
