Kelechi Iheanacho's big loss in Leicester City's match against Manchester City

The 2018/19 Premier League season produced one of the greatest title runs of all time, if not the greatest. Manchester City and Liverpool competed until the final day of the season with only one point separating them at the end.

The vanquished, Liverpool, collected 97 points, a total that is enough to win the Premier League in all but three seasons: the 2017/18 season in which City reached an unprecedented mark of 100 points; The 18/19 season when Pep Guardiola’s team got one more goal than Liverpool’s 97 and 98; And the 2019/20 season, when Jurgen Klopp’s team lost less than a century, and won the league with 99 points.

In a close race to the 2018/19 season, neither team could afford to falter, and in the penultimate game of the season, when Manchester City faced the test of Brendan Rodger's Leicester City, Iheanacho's intervention could have changed the course. from history.

After Vincent Kompany's famous goal in the 70th minute, which gave the Mancun side the lead against the stubborn Foxes, Brendan Rodgers shuffled the line-up by bringing on Iheanacho in the 80th minute in place of James Maddison.

Seven minutes after his introduction, the Super Eagles star set up Hamza Chowdhury with a pass on goal, but the Nigeria international missed a dangerous chance, resulting in his effort being cleared.

The loss of the son reminds social media of the “Iheanacho moment”

In the final match of the season, Manchester City edged past Brighton 4-1 to win the season, beating Liverpool to the title.

The line-up is similarly shuffled this season, with Spurs a potential banana peel in the penultimate game, as was the case with Leicester five seasons ago.

Manchester City held an unsafe, solitary-goal lead in the dying embers of the match in both matches and escaped the embarrassment of poor finishes in neither.

Son was the culprit in today's match, as he failed to take advantage of Manuel Akanji's mistake, as he shot Stefan Ortega, despite being alone with the German goalkeeper.

Manchester City rallied for a safe goal later in the game to win 2-0, unlike the encounter against Leicester, however, like that game, they head into the final day of the game with their fates in their hands.

Fans on social media couldn't help but draw obvious parallels between Iheanacho and Son's miss in the context of the title race:
