Vincent Kompany produced many inspirational moments as Manchester City captain, but few were as important or spectacular as his long-range winner against Leicester City in May 2019.

The Belgian's stunning 70th-minute strike secured a 1-0 win over the Foxes that proved vital as Man City won the Premier League title by a single point six days later.
