Unbeaten Man City Brush Aside Leicester

English Premier League:

Result: Leicester City 0-2 Manchester City

Date: 18 November 2017

Venue: King Power Stadium

Manchester City maintained their unbeaten start to the Premier League season, with an impressive 2-0 win over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium.

Pep Guardiola's charges dominated in the opening exchanges, but were unable to carve out a clear-cut opening.

The visitors nearly went ahead after 22 minute through David Silva, whose close-range strike was turned away by Foxes goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

Seven minutes later, Man City were dealt a blow when John Stones was forced off with an injury. He was replaced by Eliaquim Mangala.

Leicester, meanwhile, were on the back for most of the half and failed to threaten City's goal.

However, Guardiola's charges broke the deadlock on the stroke of halftime, as Raheem Sterling played in Silva, who teed up Gabriel Jesus for the simple tap-in, 0-1.

Three minutes into the second half, City doubled their lead as De Bruyne collected a pass from Leroy Sane, before rifling the ball into the top corner from 20-yards out, 0-2.

The Foxes looked livelier in the second half, but they were unable to test City goalkeeper Ederson, while Jamie Vardy cut a frustrating figure.

Claude Puel introduced Nigeria international Kelechi Iheanacho with just over 20 minutes remaining, as the home side pushed for a way back into the match.

However, Guardiola's were in full control and never looked like conceding as they ran out convincing 2-0 winners.
