In exciting fashion, Manchester City held off a late comeback from Leicester to secure their ninth consecutive Premier League victory and go six points clear at the top of the league.

Riyad Mahrez and Raheem Sterling both scored penalties, while Kevin de Bruyne and Ilkay Gundogan also found the back of the net, as the defending champions thumped a depleted Leicester team 4-0 after just 25 minutes.

Sterling’s first-half penalty indicated that he has now scored in four consecutive Premier League games for the first time since September 2017.

When James Maddison and Ademola Lookman scored within 10 minutes of each other in the second half, Ihenacho also scored to give Leicester hope.

Before Sterling’s second, Aymeric Laporte’s header restored order and provided the home team much-needed room to maneuver, but what had started off as a stroll in the park will be remembered as a much tougher test for the league leaders.
