Manchester City vs. Leicester City
Minute Commentary
90' FULL TIME
Manchester City 5 - 1 Leicester City. Cracking performance from the hosts.
90' GOAL!
And it’s four for Aguero, and what a goal! Foden provides the assist, with Aguero shifting it onto his right foot and smashing a dipping shot at goal, going in off the crossbar. No chance for the keeper. Manchester City 5 - 1 Leicester City.
88' SKIES IT!
Uncharacteristically, Kevin De Bruyne shoots from about 35 yards and absolutely skies it. Unlike him!
82' MANCHESTER CITY 4 - 1 LEICESTER CITY
Jamie Vardy and Aymeric Laporte are both booked for squaring up to each other. Nothing in it really. Nicolas Otamendi comes off and is replaced by John Stones. Just over five left to play.
77' GOAL!
Game. Set. And match. It's a hatrick for Sergio Aguero and four for Manchester City. No assist for Kevin De Bruyne this time, however it is one that Kasper Schmeichel will not want to see again. He tried to pass the ball out to Dragovic, instead giving it straight to Aguero who took a touch and chipped it over him. Awful from the keeper, but great from Aguero. Manchester City 4 - 1 Leicester City.
72' BOOKED
A cynical but clever tackle from Gundogan, who brings down Mahrez, after Laporte was robbed of the ball on the halfway line by Vardy. He could have been in there. Sneaky from the Manchester City man.
71' CHANCE!
Very close. Bernardo Silva does really well cutting in from the right, and trying to curl an effort into the top far corner, however it drifts just over. Almost!
69' CITY SUB
Danilo is on for the hosts - possibly to stop the threat of Riyad Mahrez. Just over twenty left to play...
65' SUBS
Want-away player Riyad Mahrez comes on for the visitors, as does Kelechi Iheanacho. They are on for Ben Chilwell and Fousseni Diabate. Can they spark a Leicester City comeback?
61' RARE LEICESTER ATTACK
Leicester City have a good spell, with Marc Albrighton winning a corner, which he proceeds to take. City clear their lines and the attack fizzles out.
58' MANCHESTER CITY 3 - 1 LEICESTER CITY
It's hard to see a way back into this game for Leicester City now. The Citizens are defending well, and have the second best defensive record in the league - after Manchester United. Ilkay Gundogan has a shot blocked, and Nicolas Otamendi tries his luck with a headed effort from a Kevin De Bruyne corner. Goal kick to the visitors.
53' GOAL!
Game over? It could be...Manchester City make it three now. Another goal from Sergio Aguero and a third assist from De Bruyne, who played a great angled pass to Aguero, who brought it down in his stride and fired past Kasper Schmeichel. Manchester City 3 - 1 Leicester City.
51' MANCHESTER CITY 2 - 1 LEICESTER CITY
Leicester City have it all to do now, however it is still all Man City at the moment, with Fernandinho shooting from range, unable to trouble Kasper Schmeichel. Goal kick.
47' GOAL!
Manchester City restore their lead with a goal from Sergio Aguero, who can side foot home from 6 yards, after a great low cross from Raheem Sterling. De Bruyne started the move on the left, cutting in and laying the ball on to Sterling. Great goal! Manchester City 2 - 1 Leicester City.
46' KICK-OFF
We are back underway at the Etihad. Danny Simpson is on for the visitors replacing Adrien Silva. It looks as though they are changing to a 4-5-1 formation.
45' HALF-TIME
Manchester City 1-1 Leicester City.
45' FINAL FEW
Two minutes of normal time remain in this first half.
41' HALF TIME APPROACHES
Manchester City are trying to take the lead before half-time, with Raheem Sterling going close. City eventually win a corner, taken by Kevin De Bruyne which Leicester City clear, but City are coming straight back at them...
37' THE VARDY FACTOR
Jamie Vardy has only had five touches in this game, the least of any player, however one of these was for the equaliser. Efficient.
34' SHOT
Kevin De Bruyne smashes a shot from the left of the area, and Kasper Schmeichel saves, conceding a corner. A decent effort from the Belgian.
32' CITY TURN IT UP A NOTCH
After the goal, Manchester City seem to have turned it up a gear, with Ilkay Gundogan, Bernardo Silva and Fernandinho all having shots on goal. Kasper Schmeichel is looking more comfortable in the net now.
27' GOAL!
Somehow, someway, Leicester City score an equaliser! Surprise, surprise they manage to bag one on the counter. Otamendi loses the ball in his own half, and Leicester's main man - Jamie Vardy - is there to nick the ball and steam ahead into the penalty area. He keeps a cool head, shifting the ball onto his right foot and fires home past Ederson. He loves to score against Manchester City. Manchester City 1 - 1 Leicester City.
26' RARE ATTACK
Leicester have a rare attack and manage to win a corner. They take it from the left, but it’s cleared and City break outnumbering the visitors. Sterling plays in Aguero, who takes too long and is taken out by Fuchs. Wasted opportunity.
20' GOOD WORK
Raheem Sterling does brilliantly to control a heavy pass and then whip a great ball into the box towards the near post. Schmeichel is down early to push away, but you feel a second City goal isn’t far away.
16' MANCHESTER CITY 1 - 0 LEICESTER CITY
Leicester City appear to be playing to their strengths: defending deep and unleashing Vardy on the break whenever they can. Even if Leicester were winning, they would probably be playing the same way.
15' CITY FLYING HIGH
If City do win, which you would probably bet your life on, they will go an impressive 16 points clear. Quite remarkable.
11' LONG BALL
Leicester try the long ball forward this time, lumping it up towards the ever-willing Jamie Vardy, however Ederson is on his toes and is out quickly to clear.
8' CITY PRESSURE
City are still flying forward, as they have all season. This time Kyle Walker's cross is played out for a goal kick.
5' MANCHESTER CITY 1 - 0 LEICESTER CITY
Leicester City go forward from the restart, trying to get back into this game, but Ben Chilwell is caught offside. This is potentially going to be a long evening for Leicester.
2' GOAL!
Manchester City lead already! Raheem Sterling scores with his left foot after a wonderful cross from Kevin De Bruyne is curled in between the keeper and defenders. An easy tap in for Sterling and another assist for the Belgian. Manchester City 1 - 0 Leicester City.
1' KICK-OFF
We are underway here at the Etihad Stadium, in Manchester. Can the league leaders bag another three points?
