Premier League!! Kevin de Bruyne Scores Stunning Goal As Manchester City Beat Leicester City 2-0
Manchester City produced yet another dominant performance in a victory at Leicester that protects their eight-point advantage at the top of the Premier League.
Pep Guardiola’s side picked up where they left off before the international break as they recorded a 16th consecutive win in all competitions to take them to 34 points from their opening 12 games – equalling the Premier League record they set under Roberto Mancini in 2011-12.
Gabriel Jesus gave them the lead from close range just before half-time from David Silva’s pass, after the Spaniard was sent through by Raheem Sterling’s disguised through ball.
After the break, Harry Maguire struck the post for Leicester via Fabian Delph’s deflection but Kevin de Bruyne’s thumping finish from Leroy Sane’s cut-back 22 seconds later put City firmly in control.
They will, however, be concerned by an apparent hamstring injury suffered by defender John Stones in the first half, with Guardiola saying he would be out for “maybe six weeks”.
City remain eight points clear of second-placed Manchester United, who beat Newcastle 4-1 in Saturday’s 17:30 GMT kick-off.
