How to Watch Manchester City vs. Leicester

How to Watch Manchester City vs. Leicester

"We have more important games".

Jamie Vardy has scored in three successive Premier League appearances - he hasn't enjoyed a longer streak since his record run of 11 games between August and November 2015. He struggled to get into the game and, while he didn't go hiding, he didn't seem to have the impact his teammates did.

But despite the prospect of banking a lower fee by selling Mahrez to a European club, Leicester are reluctant to allow Mahrez to join a Premier League rival and efforts will be made to find a buyer in Spain, Italy, France or Germany if the player can not be persuaded to remain at the club. At the last moment the England global dragged the ball into the right hand side of the box, before burying his shot into the bottom left corner of the net, leaving Ederson no chance. "We have had three massive games against (Manchester) United, Liverpool and Arsenal and seven points is good".

The Manchester City legend wasn't done at three.

De Bruyne was the inspiration yet again, playing an intricate pass into the area and Aguero fired past Schmeichel, despite the goalkeeper getting a hand to it.

Despite a second transfer request from Mahrez in eight months, Leicester reportedly held out for £80 million, with even City's cash-rich Abu Dhabi owners apparently unwilling to go beyond a deal worth £50 million plus a player City valued at £15 million, believed to be 21-year-old winger Patrick Roberts who is now on loan at Celtic. Leicester know well enough that interest is due to arrive for Maguire in the summer and having brought him in from Hull for around £17 million last summer, they are expected to ask for a fee around the £50 million, nearly triple of what they paid to sign him in the first place. Even if they played yesterday, bring one and put them on the bench. He hit four for City for the third time in his career and is now closing in on Kane at the top of the Premier League goal charts.

The Leicester defender will be at the centre of a summer tug-of-war between the Manchester United and City bosses. While Sterling, Aguero and Bernardo Silva all made darting runs between the defenders, the attacking impetus of Guardiola's side had certainly decreased, but Leicester's was nearly non-existent.

Leon Goretzka, who is joining Bayern next season, inadvertently provided the assist with a wayward scissors kick. Adam Szalai and Andrej Kramaric netted two apiece for Hoffenheim and Emil Berggreen bagged both goals for Mainz.

Pep Guardiola's side didn't give their opponents any chance of mounting an attack during what was a commanding second half display.

The forward completed his hat-trick with a delicate chip before adding a fourth with an unstoppable, dipping drive which crashed in off the underside of the crossbar.

77' - GOAL! Man City 4-1 Leicester City.

Manchester City (squad): Ederson, Bravo, Walker, Stones, Otamendi, Laporte, Kompany, Danilo, Zinchencko, Toure, Gundogan, Fernandinho, Foden, Diaz, Sterling, De Bruyne, B Silva, Aguero.

The Argentinian then doubled City's advantage only minutes later to send the hosts on their way to another victory. "They killed the game in this moment".

The Foxes beat City at the Etihad Stadium during their title-winning season two years ago, so they know how it feels to win there - but this is a totally different animal they will be up against.

The Algeria winger missed Leicester's last two Premier League matches and hasn't been training at the club.
