Man City Six Points Clear After Winning Thriller Against Leicester

Posted by

Manchester City held off an unexpected Leicester comeback to win their ninth Premier League game in a thrilling fashion and extend their lead at the top of the table to six points.

The defending champions appeared to have sealed up the points after only 25 minutes, leading a depleted Foxes team 4-0, with to penalties from Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling, as well as goals from Kevin de Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan.

Leicester, on the other hand, had other ideas, scoring three goals in ten second-half minutes from James Maddison, Ademola Lookman, and Kelechi Iheanacho.

Aymeric Laporte’s header restored order and provided much-needed breathing space for the home side before Sterling’s second secured the points late on, but what had started off as a stroll in the park will be remembered as a much tougher test for the league leaders.
