Title Race: Kompany Snatches Top Spot From Liverpool

Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany scored a world-class strike during their penultimate league game of the season against stubborn Leicester City to take his team to the summit of the Premier League.

Kompany scored at a time that Leicester City thought they are almost through with their target of stopping Manchester City in their quest to secure three points and take a giant step towards retaining the league title they won last season.

Manchester City started the weekend at the top of the table before Liverpool secured the Premier League summit with a late win over Newcastle United.

Belgian international Divock Origi scored the fifth and final goal of the game to give the Reds a 3-2 victory over hosts Newcastle United.

Manchester City knew they had to beat an in-form Leicester City to take the Premier League summit back from Liverpool.

The Citizens were largely frustrated by Leicester City in the first half as the Foxes played very well.

Manchester City upped the tempo in search of a win but could have conceded when Leicester City midfielder curled an effort just wide of Ederson in goal for the home side.

Vincent Kompany then went on to score the only goal of the game with 20 minutes left on the clock after unleashing an unstoppable strike from over 25 yards.

Leicester City had a big chance through substitute Kelechi Iheanacho but he dragged his effort wide against his former club when it was easier to score.

Manchester City will retain their title on the final day of the league season if they manage to beat Brighton away from home.
