Comments:

League position: 2nd With three games to play, this defeat confirmed Manchester City as the 2020-21 champions of the Premier League. This was Manchester United's first defeat in the Premier League since the visit of Sheffield United on 27 January 2021; longer than any other team currently in the division. This was the first time that two teenagers (Amad Diallo and Anthony Elanga) had made their Premier League debuts in the same game for the Red Devils since Marcus Rashford and Timothy Fosu-Mensah against Arsenal on 28 February 2016. Due to injury, captain Harry Maguire missed his first game in the Premier League since joining from Leicester City in August 2019 (played 72).

Comments:

League position: 3rd Leicester City became the first team to win at Manchester United and Manchester City in the same season in the Premier League since Liverpool in 2008-09. The Foxes had now scored in 16 of their 18 away games so far in this Premier League season; more than any other team in the division. In his 15th appearance in the division, 19 year-old Luke Thomas scored his first goal in the Premier League.
