Manchester United seem to have edged past rivals Liverpool and Scottish side Rangers in the race for Wisla Krakow goalkeeper Kacper Chorazka, with the player’s father hinting that he is keen on a switch to Old Trafford in the days to come. The Red Devils are set to take the player on trail this month.

The youngster’s dad, Artur Chorazka, was quoted in The Sun, saying: "Kacper went to Rangers on trial and I know their goalkeeping coach Jim Stewart liked him... But when you get an offer from a club like Manchester United, you cannot say no."

It was always destined to be a Memorable Monday in England and for nearly an hour it looked like Tottenham Hotspur were going to achieve the unlikely distinction of winning at Stamford Bridge for the first time in 26 years, and perhaps more crucially push the Premier League title race into week 37 as they opened up a two goal lead in the first half courtesy strikes from Harry Kane and Son Heung-min. However, Gary Cahill halved the deficit in the 58th minute with a fantastic finish for a centre half before a gorgeous strike from Eden Hazard in the 83rd minute decided the Premier League title race in favour of Leicester City, as Chelsea held local rivals Tottenham 2-2 after a hard fought, bruising and often overly physical contest in which 9 Tottenham players were booked, and at least three escaped being shown red cards as Mark Clattenburg struggled to keep control of an emotional contest.

The game itself was typically one of two halves with Tottenham taking their chances in the first period and Chelsea spurning theirs. Harry Kane beat the Chelsea offside trap, danced around Asmir Begovic before passing the ball with his left foot into an empty net to give Tottenham's travelling fans reason to celebrate in the 35th minute.

Premier League giants Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea have been boosted in their pursuit of Lille youngster Sofiane Boufal, with the player admitting that he may move to a new destination in the forthcoming summer transfer window.

The Moroccan was quoted in The Daily Express, saying: “It’s true that there’s more chance I’ll leave Lille [than stay], that’s clear.”

A goal at each end of the pitch from Craig Dawson meant that Tottenham Hotspur squeezed only a draw out of their home game against West Bromwich Albion, leaving Premier League leaders Leicester City 7 points clear of Spurs in the race for the title, with just 3 games left to play.

Tottenham fans will certainly feel that luck was not in their corner tonight having hit the woodwork thrice only to see none of their players score, but on the other hand were also a tad fortunate to score the only goal they did with Erik Lamela going down far too easily to win his side a freekick, from which Craig Dawson under enormous pressure from Jan Vertonghen pushed the ball from a prone position between the legs of his own keeper and into the back of the net.

Leicester City showed today that they are far from being a one-man team as the Foxes produced their best performance of the season in the absence of suspended striker Jamie Vardy, thrashing Swansea City 4-0 to put 8 big points between themselves and title chasers Tottenham Hotspur, with Spurs playing their game in hand tomorrow at home to West Bromwich Albion.

Leicester Manager Claudio Ranieri was once again tactically brilliant with his selection, unsurprisingly handing his first start in nearly 4 months to Leonardo Ulloa, but also opting to use the left footed Jeff Schlupp on the left flank in place of Marc Albrighton as he needed someone to swing balls into the box today for the Argentine targetman rather that release early balls for pacey Jamie Vardy to chase.

Leicester City continue to be in dreamland as the Foxes' march towards their maiden Premier League title continues after a hard earned 1-0 win against Southampton opened up a 7 point lead for them at the top of the league standings.

Finally starting to show the natural excitement that comes with leading the race for the title, Manager Claudio Ranieri was even more buoyant than usual, sharing in an interview with BBC Sport, "Everyone is expecting something more for us and we are in the cloud, but we have to keep concentrating. We want to stay there and continue. If the others are better than us then congratulations. We know it will be hard - in the next match Sunderland will be fighting to survive. I don't want to think about champions. I want to focus on the match. There is a chance for us to be champions this season, but we have to be professional."

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino urged his players to believe that they are good enough to win the title after the Premier League title chasers battled their way to a 1-1 draw at Anfield against Liverpool.

Tottenham, had been second best in the first half, and fell behind early in the second period to a goal from Philippe Coutinho, but a 22nd goal of the season from Harry Kane turned around Spurs' fortunes with the North Londoners finishing the game strongly and coming close to grabbing all three points.
