It was a whitewash as Manchester City showed Leicester City why they are the table-toppers this season. The Foxes were stunned by the level of attack by their host at Etihad. It was a complete masterclass from Pep Guardiola’s team on the night as they put five goals past Leicester City.
Sergio Aguero was the star of the night as he scored four goals to become the first player to score four goals in three different premier league games. It was Raheem Sterling who started the party as early as the third minute when the got the opener
for City after a delightful pass from a premier player of the season contender, Kelvin De Bruyne.
That, however, did not live long as Nicolas Otamendi’s error led to Jamie Vardy equalizing for the visitors. His equalizer means he has scored against all the top six teams this season, a feat that has never been done by any player in a single season. The first half ended in a draw despite City dominance.
The second half was when Sergio Aguero decided to come to the party really big. The Argentine striker scored his first of the game three minutes into the second half and in no time added his second and City’s third of the night all thanks to De Bruyne’s crosses.
At this point, City was now in full control of the game and Leicester had no way of getting back into the match. Aguero completed his hat-trick in no time before adding his fourth of the night to complete a 5-1 emphatic victory.
The story of Riyad Mahrez failed to move to City dominated discussions before the game as he returns to the squad after the transfer incident. He, however, started the game from the bench and came on in the second half. The win means City move 16 points clear of Manchester United in second and edge closer to clinching the title.
