Aguero Hits Four As Man City Put Five Past Leicester

Manchester City FC news Pep Guardiola says Kevin De Bruyne good enough to win the Ballon d'Or

Under-fire Sam Allardyce's side have dramatically tailed off, winning just one of their last eight games, while Roy Hodgson has inspired the Eagles to resurgence since being parachuted in. Congratulations to him because it's not easy to score four goals.

The tempo of the game was frantic from the very beginning, but City managed to control the possession well with their slick passing moves and intelligent off the ball running.

City have only 11 more matches to navigate en route to what would be their first championship since 2014 and also remain firmly in the hunt in the Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup. He struggled to get into the game and, while he didn't go hiding, he didn't seem to have the impact his teammates did.

Mourinho has already confirmed that he is not looking to make additions to his attacking lineup following the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in January, but is known to be on the look out for midfielders and defenders, with a number of players set to be shown the door in the summer. At the last moment the England worldwide dragged the ball into the right hand side of the box, before burying his shot into the bottom left corner of the net, leaving Ederson no chance.

We look forward to Mr. Neville's rebuttal.

The Manchester City legend wasn't done at three.

Claude Puel's proposed tactical masterstroke did not pay off though, as his side dozed off again at the start of the second half to give City the lead once more.

"Whether Riyad Mahrez would have made that more likely is a moot point, but he certainly makes a difference to Leicester and now that he's made his point needs to get back playing". "Apart from one or two players, they are mainly the same".

Argentine striker Aguero netted all his goals in a devastating second-half showing - twice finishing from Kevin de Bruyne's ideal passes, punishing a Kasper Schmeichel error by chipping into the net and curling in a sublime fourth.

The next penetrating pass from the boot of De Bruyne came in the form of a low through-ball behind the defence into Aguero's path.

"There is still a lot to play, I don't know what is going to happen".

The Argentina global has now scored 13 goals in 10 matches since the turn of the year, when City's other main goal-getter Gabriel Jesus was ruled out with injury.

Kasper Schmeichel has acknowledged that he can understand the disappointment of Riyad Mahrez after his failed move to Manchester City. While Sterling, Aguero and Bernardo Silva all made darting runs between the defenders, the attacking impetus of Guardiola's side had certainly decreased, but Leicester's was nearly non-existent.

Leicester made a change at half-time, bringing on Danny Simpson in a change of shape intent on disrupting the predictable style of the game.

"We conceded the goals at a bad time, just at the beginning of the first half and just at the beginning of the second half", Puel said.

DF Aymeric Laporte, 7 - As with his centre-back partner, he was in some way culpable for the Leicester goal as he should have closed Vardy down quicker.

Manchester City are still without a left-back as Benjamin Mendy has been nursing an injury for quite a while now. "They killed the game in this moment".
