Manchester City pipped Leicester City 1-0 in a tough game played on Saturday, 22nd February, at the latter’s King Power Stadium.
Sergio Agüero missed a penalty, and coach Pep Guardiola replaced him with Gabriel Jesus and the Brazilian scored for Manchester City.
It seemed Manchester City’s chance of earning an away win had gone when Aguero had his spot-kick beaten away by Kasper Schmeichel after the video assistant referee had ruled that Dennis Praet had blocked Ilkay Gundogan’s strike with his arm.
But with 10 minutes of normal time remaining, Manchester City made the breakthrough when the Brazilian striker found the back of the net with a low strike from Riyad Mahrez’s through ball.
Striker Jamie Vardy went closest for Leicester when his clipped shot in the first half came off the base of the post, while team-mate James Maddison tested the reflexes of Ederson with a free-kick from 30 yards out.
Manchester City is now seven points away from Leicester City who are in the third place and 19 points behind leaders Liverpool.
