Manchester City win a difficult away environment at Leicester City. They have now moved to within 11 points of a third Premier League title in four years with a superb 2-0 win over UCL chasing Leicester.

Completely dominating from whistles start, Pep Guardiola’s side are now 17 points clear of second-place Manchester United with goals from Benjamin Mendy and Gabriel Jesus.

A great performance, clean sheet and victory.

Pep Guardiola Reaction

“All the managers think the same - after the international break, how will my players be?

“All these players proved again how consistent they are. The run of games we have won in the last months – I am very pleased.

“We need four more victories to win the title. Now we rest and Dortmund is the next one.

“Yesterday the players came back and I spoke to some of them and some were tired - three games in 10 days, they travel a lot,” he said.

“So we tried to put on as many fresh legs as possible today. Except Nathan Ake, the rest of the players were in Manchester.

“The players who didn’t play the last game on international duty were ready to play.

“This is one of our identities - one of the most talented players in the world plays like this,” said Pep.

“We spoke about this from day one.

“We can play good or bad but we cannot deny in five years we are together, the players run hard and fight every single game.

“That is something I am incredibly proud of.”

“We were more patient against Leicester than the game at Etihad in September because they defend so well.

“It’s a good victory and another step.”
