Leicester City beat Manchester City 3-1.
Is this the day Leicester City won the English Premier league? Surely all those who doubted them and never took them seriously must now begin to think they are the real deal.For
Leicester to go to the Etihad and thrash Manchester City 3-1,"no be beans" as we say in
Nigeria.Personally i am tipping them for the title.For two reasons,one,my team Manchester
United are out of it and i cannot bear Man City or Arsenal to win it.But i will gladly concede
to Leicester ot Tottenham Hotspurs.No 2,Leicester deserve it,they have been a breath of
fresh air,from relegation shores last season to top of the premiership with a shoe string
budget.Their team who beat Man City today only cost £22m! Imagine,thats probably the price for Aguero's left boot!
Now back to the game today which saw Man City lose to Leicester 1-3.
Leicester City dominated the game and had more possession for large durations of the game, and are rewarded with three points and sit top of the table with 13 games to go till the season's end.
Winger and creativity king Riyad Mahrez went on a mazy run down the Leicester right before being fouled on the edge of the box which led to the Leicester opener.
Then defender Huth got the decisive touch ahead of Demichelis to turn home Mahrez's free kick from close range to put the visitors ahead and Jamie Vardy almost doubled Leicester's lead after racing clear of the City defence, who had goalkeeper Hart to thank to keeping the score at 1-0.
Winger Riyad Mahrez let fly with a great strike after cleverly evading the challenges of two Manchester City defenders to double the lead making it 2-0.When Robert Huth headed in the third on 59 minutes, some home fans headed for the exits,leaving a lot of seats empty.
We want four!’ chanted the Leicester fans excitedly. And it was only down to Joe Hart’s saves that Jamie Vardy didn’t make it four on 67 minutes. With five minutes to go Sergio Aguero headed in on 87 minutes from Bersant Celina’s cross to make it 1-3 on home soil.
This is the third time Man City have been well beaten this season, having gone down 4-1 at Tottenham and 4-1 at home to Liverpool.
