Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany led from the front and scored an audacious goal three years ago to keep City ahead of title rivals Liverpool.

The former Belgian international scored one of the greatest goals in Manchester City history with his only goal from outside the box against Leicester.

The goal by Vincent Kompany against Leicester proved decisive, as Man City won the game and went on to win the title by just one point.

On May 6, 2019, Manchester City faced Leicester City in a tightly contested match for the Premier League title.

Liverpool had risen to the top of the Premier League table after a dramatic 3-2 win over Newcastle United, and a defeat in the Man City vs. Leicester Premier League clash would see Pep Guardiola’s side drop to second place.

Despite Man City’s dominance on the field, the match was still at 0-0, with no team able to break the tie. Pep Guardiola replaced youngster Phil Foden with Leroy Sane after halftime, but it did little to deter the Foxes defence.

With nearly 20 minutes remaining, Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany received the ball in the Leicester half and marched forward with purpose, looking for better-positioned options.

Leicester City, on the other hand, closely matched each of their City opponents. With few options, Vincent Kompany made an audacious move, scoring his first goal from outside the penalty area.

The goal by Vincent Kompany against Leicester was the only goal of the game, and Man City returned to the top of the table.

The 2018-19 Premier League season was captain Vincent Kompany’s final at the Etihad Stadium, and Pep Guardiola’s side made sure he had a fitting send-off.

Man City and Liverpool were involved in one of the closest title race contests in Premier League history, exchanging leads 32 times during the season, due in part to fixture changes for EFL and FA Cup matches as well as television demands.

Man City won their fourth Premier League title, thanks to Vincent Kompany’s goal. Along with the title, Pep Guardiola led the team to unprecedented success, winning the FA Cup and the Carabao Cup to complete the domestic treble!
