Leicester beat Manchester United to advance to first semifinal in 39 years

It leaves the Europa League as the last realistic chance this season for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to win his first trophy since taking charge of United in 2018.

But Leicester, who are third in the Premier League and a point behind United, will face Southampton in the last four of the FA Cup at Wembley Stadium next month.

Leicester and Man U climb into top three

United are on 26 points, five behind leaders Liverpool and just a point behind second-placed Leicester, who earlier beat Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 in London.

Jamie Vardy scored Leicester City's opening goal and had a hand in the other.

The Foxes now have 27 points from 14 games, four behind champions and leaders Liverpool.

Tottenham dropped two places down to fourth after a second successive defeat.

Leicester confirm Manu Tuilagi departure

Chief executive Andrea Pinchen confirmed that England stars Tuilagi and Kyle Eastmond, and also Telusa Veainu, Greg Bateman and Noel Reid have left the Welford Road club.

Leicester set their players a deadline of Tuesday evening to sign new deals on reduced terms, to reflect the impact of the coronavirus pandemic and also the upcoming salary cap reductions.

And British and Irish Lions star Tuilagi heads the cast-list of players who refused to accept the wage cuts, and have therefore left the east Midlands club.

Man City 5 Leicester City 1

Much of the build-up was dominated by Riyad Mahrez's return to Leicester's squad after missing 10 days of training in response to not securing a move to the hosts, but he was benched as City – who were afforded a few days off beforehand – ultimately cruised, with De Bruyne and Aguero stealing the show.

Although City enjoyed an electric start, going ahead in the third minute thanks to Raheem Sterling's 15th league goal of the season, they appeared to lack a little sharpness in the first half.

Leicester on verge of title

RNZI reports Leicester's lead over Spurs increased to eight points with four games remaining. The in-form Londoners play tomorrow at home to West Bromwich Albion.

And it was a doubly dismal day for Arsenal, after the Gunners were held to a scoreless draw at Sunderland.
