Manchester City came closer to a Top 4 finish in the Premier League thanks to a nervous 2-1 victory over Leicester City on Saturday's lunchtime kickoff. City dominated the first half and scored two goals, but Leicester dominated the second half. Thankfully for the Sky Blues, the Foxes got just one goal, and the hosts escaped with the victory.

It's time for your player ratings! As always, thanks so much for you votes!

Man of the Match: Leroy Sané (38.5%)

Not a lot to argue here. Sané was fantastic in the afternoon, and even though he and the team couldn't get it going in the second half, it was Leroy who basically got City their two-goal lead in the first period, first with an amazing assist to David Silva, then by winning the penalty converted by Gabriel Jesus. Sané's pace and skill destroyed poor Danny Simpson, and Leroy was a major contributor to City's win.
