How City went top of the table

Leicester took on City having gotten back to the type of late in the wake of dominating their last three matches at home without surrendering, however with a difference in shape as Brendan Rodgers changed to a 3-4-3.

Be that as it may, three at the back truly transformed into five in the main half as City ruled both belonging and domain, pushing their hosts back right all along, but without genuinely testing Ward.

That was all different, however, after a half-opportunity as City turned out in alternate stuff, practically starting to lead the pack directly from the restart as Rodri terminated a low drive creeps past the post before the guests made the leap forward.
