Leicester City fans have been pinching themselves all season with the first class soccer their team is playing this year. Thanks to the goals of English striker Jamie Vardy and PFA Player of the Year Riyad Mahrez, they are within touching distance of the Premier League crown. It’s been an incredible team effort though, and their unsung heroes like Robert Huth and Wes Morgan also must be commended. This isn’t a team with players of the talents of Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi, these guys just work very hard for each other!
Manchester United, on the other hand, rescued their season with by beating Everton in the FA Cup semi-final. Now with a cup final to look forward to, the pressure is off them as they try to win a trophy for the first time in two seasons. But they are still aiming to catch Arsenal for a top four place and qualification for next year’s Champions League.
A big blow for Leicester going into this one is that star striker Jamie will be suspended after his ban was extended for refusing to leave the pitch when he was sent off against West Ham in a 2-2 draw. The subsequent abuse he gave the referee on that occasion meant he was banned for two matches instead of one. Will his absence mean that Tottenham Hotspur don’t catch them. We’ll find out soon.
With home advantage, and on a good run, this will be a big ask for Leicester to win at home against the improving 20-time league champions. The Foxes may have to wait till next week to clinch the title.
