How painful and harsh this may sound to anyone who have followed the manner with which Leicester City have gotten to this point in their career, but we may also need to look critically at their last match where the referee awarded a controversial penalty and sent off Vardy.
The FA is yet to make a final decision on Jamie Vardy, Leicester’s leading goal scorer (22 goals), who is likely to face an increased ban for improper conduct by the Football Association. If he is banned and misses next match against United, that could mean tough time for the Foxes who need just eight points from their remaining four matches to win the title.
LEICESTER’S LAST FOUR MATCHES
- Leicester City – Swansea City
- Manchester United – Leicester City
- Leicester City -Everton
- Chelsea – Leicester City
TOTTENHAM’S LAST FOUR MATCHES
- Tottenham – West Brom
- Chelsea – Tottenham
- Tottenham – Southampton
- Newcastle – Tottenham
Both teams will meet defending champions Chelsea who are currently struggling and will be willing to do the damage to enable them move away from their present situation.
The earliest way in which Leicester City could win the title is if they beat Manchester United at Old Trafford on May 1, and they will be left to get five points. Two more wins will do the magic before last day of match, while a win and three draws will give them the title but that will be under pressure.
