Leicester draw with Man Utd to put Premier League title bid on hold

Leicester City's bid to win Premier League title was put on hold after they drew 1-1 with Manchester United on Sunday.

Claudio Ranieri's side would have been crowned champions with a victory at Old Trafford, but they fell behind to Anthony Martial's goal before Wes Morgan headed a 17th minute equaliser.

Leicester are now eight points clear of second placed Tottenham and can still secure their first ever English top-flight title if the north Londoners fail to win at Chelsea on Monday.

Regardless of Tottenham's result, Leicester will be the most unlikely champions in English football history if they beat Everton at the King Power Stadium next Saturday.
