Manchester City stay just ahead of Liverpool after Vincent Kompany thunderbolt

Baku, May 7, AZERTAC

Manchester City will start the final day of the Premier League season a point ahead of Liverpool after a remarkable 1-0 victory over Leicester on Monday Night Football, according to Sky Sports.

In a moment to encapsulate the thrilling drama of this year's title battle, Kompany broke Leicester's dogged resistance with a 30-yard thunderbolt with 20 minutes remaining at the Etihad.

Incredibly, the strike was the Manchester City captain's first shot on target from outside the penalty area in over five years and the first he had scored from outside the box for the club.

At the final whistle, Man City strikers Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus were overheard telling Kompany they were shouting at him not to shoot.

City's victory over Leicester was their 13th in succession. A win on the final day at Brighton will guarantee that City are crowned champions, despite Liverpool's perfect form for the last two months.
