Leicester City continued their ambitious match to the title with a surprising 3-1 victory at the Ethiad. Manchester City couldn’t just stop the fast paced Leicester City boys. Clearly they are the favourites for the title now even though their manager Claudio Ranieri is still denying it. The victory kept Leicester City at the top of the premier league with a 5 points advantage of second placed Tottenham Hotspur. Even Manchester City’s website review of the match was damning of their team.
“If there were doubts about the legitimacy of Leicester’s title credentials, they dissipated three minutes into Saturday’s lunchtime kick-off when Robert Huth reacted quickest to Riyad Mahrez’s smartly-taken free-kick.”
“The Foxes were arguably the best team to have visited the Etihad Stadium this season and it’s no exaggeration to say that their winning margin could have been even wider.”
“Twice, Joe Hart came to City’s rescue when Jamie Vardy was through on goal and the league’s top scorer also hit the sidenetting with a chance you’d normally expect him to bury.”
“It was a sobering day to be a City supporter as the home side waited until the 85th minute to exert any meaningful pressure on a Leicester back four who showed just why they’ve conceded so few goals of late.”
