Manchester United's 2-1 loss to Leicester City on Tuesday saw Manchester City crowned as Premier League champions.

The Red Devils needed to win to delay City's inevitable victory, but they now have the title with three games to spare.

With another game against rivals Liverpool on Thursday, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer made ten changes to the side who beat Aston Villa on Sunday.

19-year-old Luke Thomas had put the visitors in front with a fantastic far-post volley into the top corner.

Mason Greenwood then equalised for United five minutes later when the teenager collected a pass from Amad Diallo before beating Kasper Schmeichel.

But with a top-four spot on the line, the Foxes did not give up.

Eventually, Caglar Soyuncu got the goal they so desperately wanted, heading in at the far post to give his side all three points.

Leicester are now eight points clear of fifth-placed West Ham United, although the Hammers have a game in hand.
