Middlesbrough (0:0) Leicester City
Leicester City (1:2) Newcastle United: Heskey
Everton (1:2) Leicester City: Recoba, Heskey
We ruined it for ourselves in matches against North-East opposition. We were fruitless in attack on Teesside and by the time Newcastle were down at Filbert, Emile Heskey’s juices had stopped flowing, he netted on 17 minutes but a double from none other than Alan Shearer saw our Champions League chances slip through our fingers with Chelsea making a late surge above us into second place. Emile Heskey was the man to net a winner at Goodison Park just when we needed one.
League Table: (final day)
Manchester United 90
Leicester City 72
West Ham 69
Arsenal had a final day trip at White Hart Lane to navigate whilst Chelsea hosted Aston Villa, Liverpool hosted Watford and West Ham were at Hillsborough. We definitely needed a win at home to Leeds United.
Leicester City (0:1) Leeds United
Ian Harte penalty
We were undone by a penalty in a scrappy affair. Luckily Liverpool and West Ham were both held in their matches. Nothing but disappointment to have missed out on a Champions League place and to a stupid defensive mistake.
