Leicester City Humiliates Injury-Ravaged Man City At Home To Top EPL Table

Leicester City Humiliates Injury-Ravaged Man City At Home To

Leicester City humiliates injury-infested Manchester City at home in a 2-5 thriller to top EPL table and the first team to score 12 goals in the EPL 2020-21 season.

AllNews reports that Leicester City tops the league for the second consecutive week and another high scoring match with at least a 3-goal margin win.

Leicester City was too much for the injury-infested Manchester City as they ran riot with the Citizens on the Etihad turf.

City opened the scoring account of the day with a 4-minute screamer from Riyad Mahrez from a long-range to give Man City the lead very early in the game.

Leicester responded with a penalty goal from Jamie Vardy who has been on top form for Leicester this season having already notched in 5 goals. He is on the same amount of goals as Everton top scorer, Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

The first half ended 1-1.

Whatever Brendan Rodgers told his men absolutely worked, as they come up swinging in the second half.

Jamie Vardy converted a flick from the near post to beat Ederson as Castagne provided yet another assist for the foxes.

Just 4 minutes apart, Jamie Vardy scores another penalty in the match as Eric Garcia barges against Barnes in the box. 

The referee pointed to the spot, Vardy finished off the penalty in a lovely fashion to make it 1-3 at the Etihad.

Manchester City Academy player, Delap, was given a chance after a superb play in the Carabao Cup. He almost scored on the 64th-minute when he received a ball from Mendy, but the ball glanced off the bar and travelled over.

Maddison was subbed in for Dennis Praet, it took just 8 minutes for the newly-contracted Leicester City player to score, with a lovely curler, he bends the ball around Ederson to make it 1-4

Nathan Ake got his first goal for City when he headed in a corner kick from Mahrez to give City a glimpse of hope of reducing the deficit or a comeback with 6 minutes before 90 minutes.

Maddison was on the verge of making it 5 when Mendy pulled him in the box and the referee did not hesitate to point to the spot.

That was Leicester's third penalty in the game.

Vardy would have scored his fourth goal but he was already subbed off for Kelechi Iheanacho, Tielemans stood up to take it and he sent the keeper the wrong way with a low ball into the bottom-right corner.

Leicester will host West Ham at the King Power Stadium next as Man City travels to Leeds United at the Ellan Road in England.
