Manchester City vs. Leicester: Premier League highlights and recap

Manchester City vs. Leicester: Premier League highlights and recap

The 24-year-old joined the Foxes from Hull last summer for £17million but his price has trebled after enjoying a stellar season at the King Power Stadium.

Mahrez returned as a substitute for Leicester after more than a week in self-imposed exile following the collapse of a move to City, but he could do little to stop Guardiola's rampant side.

Leicester responded well, and the match turned into an entertaining, end-to-end contest for the first half hour, a pleasant change from most City matches, which typically involve their opponents putting 11 men behind the ball, merely hoping not to lose.

It was the flawless way for City to sign off from Premier League action for the month, with Pep Guardiola's side having Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup commitments in the next fortnight.

Mahrez could make his Leicester comeback against Manchester City on Saturday - live on Sky Sports - and ahead of that game, Guardiola heaped praise on his goalkeeper Ederson.




Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has praised his side for eventually breaking down a hard Leicester City who they routed 5-1 in Saturday's Premier League clash at the Etihad.

"I said before my last press conference it was important for him to come back quick", Puel said.

"Kevin is an fantastic player so it's good that he's playing with us", Aguero told Sky Sports. Aguero unleashed a rocket of a shot from just outside the box in the 90th minute to score his fourth goal of the second half. "I think everyone knows Riyad has the ability to play at the highest level, so I understand his disappointment, definitely".

After Raheem Sterling and Jamie Vardy exchanged first-half goals, Aguero took over and effectively ended the game with two strikes within eight minutes after the break. Poor form from our closest competitors has left us still just one point from 7th, and four points clear of 9th, but the Foxes need to turn this around. Riyad came back. He perhaps made a mistake but it's important to have our best players with us. But every great team has a flaw and for this City side, directness and a pacy forward line do the trick to ring alarm bells around their backline.
