Stunning Vincent Kompany goal leads Manchester City to within one win of retaining Premier League title

Vincent Kompany’s stunning long-range strike moved Manchester City to within one win of the title as a 1-0 victory over Leicester saw the champions return to the top of the Premier League on Monday.

Kompany produced a captain’s goal when City needed it most, breaking the stalemate with an unstoppable 30-yard drive into the top corner just as Pep Guardiola’s side looked out of ideas.

Kelechi Iheanacho spurned a glorious chance to haunt his former club three minutes from time, but he dragged Leicester’s best chance wide as Kompany’s sensational 70th-minute effort, City’s 100th at home in all competitions this season, settled the contest.

The result, City’s 13th consecutive league victory, means they will become the first side in a decade to retain the title if they win at Brighton on the final day of the season.
