Leicester fans have to wait a bit longer

Leicester's 1-all draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford this morning has not been enough for the team from the English Midlands to win football's Premier League.

But the point they earned takes them ever closer to the title.

Leicester will be crowned champions tomorrow if second-placed Tottenham, who trail them by eight points, fail to beat Chelsea.

Look back at the commentary here:

The Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri was not too disappointed.

"We knew it wasn't an easy match today and I didn't think about win or no win and after the result is okay ...but I'm very very pleased with the performance and today we start a little little down I think because United started very very well."

Ranieri said he may be the last person to know whether his team has taken the championship, because the Chelsea game will be played while he is flying back from lunch in Italy with his 96-year-old mother.

United are up to fifth, four points behind fourth-placed Manchester City, who were upset 4-2 by Southampton.
