Liverpool fans convinced they’re cursed after Vincent Kompany’s stunning potential title-clincher vs Leicester

Vincent Kompany

Liverpool supporters have flooded to social media this evening to curse their luck, after Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany all-but secured the Premier League title for the Citizens with a wonder-strike versus Leicester.

Man City vs Leicester

Pep Guardiola’s men welcomed the Foxes to the Etihad a short time ago, in an absolutely crucial outing in the Premier League title race.

Liverpool’s nail-biting 3-2 win over Newcastle on Saturday saw the Reds move back above City to the summit of the English top-flight.

As such, with just one set of fixtures remaining after tonight’s proceedings in Manchester, the champions were aware ahead of kick-off that nothing but a 3-point haul would do.

Kompany decides it

The opening 45 minutes saw clear-cut chances few-and-far between, with Kasper Schmeichel’s stunning save from a Sergio Aguero header having proved the highlight of a tense half of football.

As such, when the clock passed the hour-mark and City were still yet to score, tensions began to reach near-unbearable levels around the Etihad.

However, just when it looked as though Leicester may somehow find a way to hold the champions’ rake of attacking stars at bay, City struck, through the most unlikely source.

After picking the ball up 30 yards from goal, Sky Blues’ stopper Vincent Kompany was invited to step forward by the Leicester backline.

However, the Foxes could in no way have predicted what was coming.

Incredibly, the City captain went on to unleash the strike of his career, which arrowed beyond the reach of the despairing Kasper Schmeichel into the top right-hand corner.

‘Done with football’

When all was said and done at the Etihad, Kompany’s wonder-strike proved the difference between the sides, a fact which Liverpool’s fans have since taken as the final proof needed that the club’s pursuit of the Premier League title is definitively cursed:
