If winning the Premier League title was not enough for Leicester City, they now stand at an opportunity of completing their remarkable title journey at the home of Premier League’s 13-time Champions – Manchester United.
Despite their recent blip, The Red Devils have been the most successful team in Premier League history. However, they will stand in the way of Leicester’s fairy tale becoming a true story this weekend.
With Spurs drawing their game against West Brom last Monday, Leicester could achieve the impossible if they win at Old Trafford this weekend. The stadium is referred as the Theater of Dreams and it could see the greatest dream in English football come true this Sunday.
Another story line which has emerged in recent weeks is the possibility of Leicester City getting the “Guard of Honor” at Stamford Bridge when they play against Chelsea on the last day of season. You must be wondering, why is that important?
If you have followed Chelsea before they started to win Premier League titles, Claudio Ranieri was their manager and he was brutally sacked by Roman Abramovich. Not only that, Chelsea owner went on to claim that Ranieri will never win a league title in his career.
12 years later, the Italian manager is just a win away from winning his first ever league title and what better way to get the “Guard of Honor” against his former employer who thought that Ranieri was not good enough.
However, like any other fairy tale Leicester’s journey towards being crowned as Champions will not be easy as Manchester United are not going to roll over and be the stepping stone for Claudio Ranieri’s success.
United are fighting for the top-4 finish and they need a win at all cost to remain in hunt to play Champions League football next season. The game at old Trafford will be followed by Everton and then Chelsea, so we could yet have a late twist in the title race this season with Tottenham hot on Leicester’s heels and waiting for an opportunity to pounce on.
All said and done, Leicester’s journey from almost relegated to the top of Premier League charts has been a beautiful story for all to witness, and what better way to see it come true at Old Trafford – The most iconic stadium in Premier League history.
It just keeps getting better and better for Leicester City and all of their anticipated fans.
