United wanted to keep away from defeat to delay Metropolis’s title celebrations for at the least two extra days, however Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s choice to discipline a weakened line-up proved pricey – though, let’s not child ourselves, Metropolis have been all the time going to be champions.
Caglar Soyuncu’s 66th-minute winner lifts Leicester above Chelsea into third, eight factors above fifth-place West Ham within the race for a top-four end.
