The footballing fairytale to end all fairytales could have a dream ending on Sunday - Leicester City will be crowned Premier League champions if they defeat fallen giants Manchester United at Old Trafford.

With Spurs dropping two points in their 1-1 draw with West Brom, Claudio Ranieri's Foxes can claim their first top-flight title with victory at the home of 20-time winners United.

Leicester travel to Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon knowing they need to just add one more win to the 22 they have already accrued to move far enough clear of Mauricio Pochettino's chasers.

In the match tonight, needing a victory to cut the gap to five points with three games left, Tottenham dominated the first half and took the lead when West Brom defender Craig Dawson bundled Christian Eriksen's free kick into his own net.

Tottenham also hit the woodwork three times but became increasingly edgy as the second half wore on and Dawson headed the visitors level after 72 minutes.

West Brom grew in confidence and Tottenham failed to threaten in the closing stages, meaning Leicester can win the title if they beat United on Sunday.
