Adjust Comment Print

Sergio Aguero scored four times as Manchester City extended their Premier League lead to 16 points with a 5-1 demolition of Leicester at the Etihad Stadium.

CITY will be hoping to extend their lead at the top of the table with a win against the Foxes. The match starts at 01:30 on 11 February 2018.

De Bruyne slipped Aguero through for another within 10 minutes, continuing his nearly certain PL Player of the Year campaign.

Raheem Sterling opened the scoring for the hosts, converting Kevin de Bruyne's teasing cross in the third minute, before Jamie Vardy equalised against the run of play with a slight deflection beating Ederson.

And certainly I would go to him and 'Listen, this is why we're going to do that.' Just as I did with Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving . Golden State - twice, Boston, Toronto, Oklahoma City, San Antonio, Detroit and now Houston.

The Argentine scored four second-half goals to take his season's tally to 21, while De Bruyne pulled the strings at the heart of City's attacking orchestra, adding three assists in another flawless performance.

City opened the scoring in only the third minute, Raheem Sterling showing he learned his lesson from a awful miss against Burnley last week and tapping in at the back post.

Sergio Aguero however returned from the dugout with one thing at the back of of his mind and duly unleashed his predatory instincts with four stupendously taken goals. Once again it was De Bruyne who was the provider as he picked out the Argentina star with a pin-point pass from the left-edge of the penalty area for an easy finish. His wonderful arching cross was gobbled up Sterling from two yards - virtually the same position where he fluffed his golden opportunity seven days earlier. This time Sterling's reaction was to look to drive City forward.

Sterling went close to a second just before the break as he beat Schmeichel only to be denied by a fine block from Aleksandar Dragovic. Leicester boss Claude Puel will be frustrated by the result, but the two players are at least a threat to any side in the country.

The Algeria global subsequently went AWOL but, a day after Leicester boss Claude Puel said Mahrez would not feature at the Eithad Stadium, he returned to training on Friday. "I hope he can come back and work hard with the team sooner rather than later", said the Foxes manager.

"This season we have done it that way and we are going to continue".

The Catalan coach's decision brought some stinging criticism, particularly from Sky pundit and former Manchester United captain Gary Neville, who believed Guardiola should have offered the chance of a matchday experience on the bench to one of City's many talented academy prospects.
