Manchester United's busy week continues as they take on Leicester City in a battle of the top four. If United win their faint hopes for the world's most dramatic comeback remain alive. They'd sit seven points behind Manchester City with three matches to play. Leicester on the other hand, find themselves in a battle for fourth place. They enter the match, their third to last of the season with a five point lead over West Ham, but more concerningly only a six point lead over Liverpool who have a match in hand. After shockingly slipping out of the top four over the last month of the season last year, Leicester are desperately looking to avoid a similar fate this time around.

What to Know

These two teams played to a draw when United visited the King Power Stadium, and a repeat of that result would officially end United's extremely faint title hopes while also keeping Leicester barely on pace to squeak to a fourth place finish and qualify for the Champions League.  

United have been in fine form recently. In addition to reaching the finals of the Europa League, the Red Devils haven't lost in the Premier League since January 27, a stretch of 14 games which over which they've won eight and drawn six. Most recently, they  netted a 3-1 victory over Aston Villa on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Leicester's form is slipping at the worst possible time.  They've only won two of their last six matches and have a very difficult stretch ahead of them with Chelsea and Tottenham on the schedule to close the season after United. That makes the f act they came up short against Newcastle United this past Friday, falling 4-2, even more painful.

Manchester United's win lifted them to 20-4-10 (second place with 70 points) while Leicester City's loss dropped them down to 19-10-6 (fourth place with 63 points). We'll see if Man United can repeat their recent success or if Leicester bounces back and reverse their fortune.

Manchester City won the Premier League title for the third time under Pep Guardiola, after second-placed Manchester United's 2-1 home defeat to Leicester City on Tuesday.

The result at Old Trafford leaves United with 70 points from 35 matches, 10 behind City with three games left to play in the 2020-2021 campaign.

Despite a home defeat by Chelsea at the weekend, City have enjoyed a magnificent turnaround this season after picking up 12 points from their first eight games — their worst start since 2008-09.

Since then they have been head and shoulders above their rivals and since hitting the top have looked unstoppable.

After losing at Tottenham Hotspur in November, they won 22 of their next 27 matches, including a 15-game winning run and a record-equalling 11 successive away league wins.

“This has been a season and a Premier League title like no other,” Guardiola said after City were confirmed champions on Tuesday. “This was the hardest one. We will always remember this season for the way that we won. I am so proud to be the manager here and of this group of players.

“They are so special. To come through this season — with all the restrictions and difficulties we've faced — and show the consistency we have is remarkable.

“To come through this season, with all the restrictions and difficulties we've faced — and show the consistency we have is remarkable. It is relentless.”

The title marks the latest landmark in Guardiola's glittering career at the club. After joining City in 2016, Guardiola landed his first league title at the Etihad a season later, as he masterminded a superb campaign where the club finished with a league-record 100 points.

City retained their title the next season, as Guardiola's men edged Liverpool in a thrilling title race, finishing on 98 points — a point ahead of Jurgen Klopp's side. In addition to domestic league glory, Guardiola has also lifted the League Cup four times in a row, as well as the FA Cup in 2019.

Guardiola's success at City also means he has won three league titles in every division he has managed, following his triumphs in La Liga with Barcelona and the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich.

Among his players, Zack Steffen is the first American to the win the Premier League, while Sergio Aguero overtakes David Silva to become the club's most-decorated player with 15 trophies.

Manchester City have three league games remaining, against Newcastle, Brighton and Everton, before attention will turn to the club's first-ever Champions League final.

The club's latest league title moves them on to seven in total, with Manchester United still out in front on 20.
