EPL fourth place battle: Ighalo or Ndidi as United clash with Leicester

It promises a battle-royale as Manchester United visit Leicester City on the last match-day of the always captivating English Premier League.

Although the top two positions are already settled following the run-away victory of Liverpool and Manchester City falling into the second position.
But the third and fourth positions are highly contentious as teams battle to pick the UEFA Champions’ League tickets for the next season.

The Champions League is the most lucrative and best-followed league in the world.

The battle for the top four position has turned a three-horse race of Chelsea, Manchester United and Leicester City.

While Chelsea will be home to sixth placed Wolves and seem to have their destiny in their hands, requiring just a draw, depending on the outcome of the Leicester versus Manchester United.

Both Leicester and Manchester United equally have their destinies in their hands. Significantly there is a Nigerian flavour to the encounter.

Both have Nigerians in their folds. Home side, Leicester have
Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho while Odion Ighalo will be hoping to play a crucial role for United.

A draw will be sufficient for Odion Ighalo’s Manchester United. But the duo of Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho can still also smile if Chelsea bungle their home game with Wolves.
Leicester will place fourth ahead of Chelsea on goal-difference.
