With full capacity crowd permission, Wembley Stadium was all set to witness the match and Leicester flags were already high with huge excitement among the fans. Though the favourites were Manchester City a single goal thrashed them in the match.

The first half was pretty much with the same possession from both sides followed by the second half which had the moment of the match when Jack Grealish entered the ground with high hopes for city fans but the match was taken into the death minutes in Leicester favour.

Jack Grealish made his debut for Manchester City but it was substituted by Kelechi Iheanacho who got the Sheild for Leicester. The attacker came into the match in the 65th minute but was unable to help the city grab the grip of a tight match. The game was expecting a Penalty Shootout as it was very head to head until the 8th minute when Nathan Ake lingered on the ball in defence and a penalty was given.

In the last 10 minutes, both the teams were making sure that no mistake is made and neither team wanted to bother with penalties but a small moment changed the momentum and the Silver Plate was all over to Leicester.
