Manchester City 1-3 Leicester City

Leicester moved six points clear of title rivals Manchester City after a stunning win at the Etihad Stadium.

Claudio Ranieri’s side remain top of the Premier League with arguably the most remarkable result of The Foxes’ astonishing season.

Robert Huth netted Leicester’s opening goal inside three minutes, meeting Riyad Mahrez’s early free-kick.

Manchester City never looked like breaking down The Foxes’ defence, while their own appeared vulnerable.

Riyad Mahrez extended Leicester’s lead shortly after the interval before Robert Huth nodded in a Christian Fuch’s corner to make it 3-0 to the visitors.

Sergio Aguero subsequently scored a late consolation in a disappointing day for Manuel Pellegrini’s men.

The Foxes have now picked up 28 points on their travels this season an despite only keeping one clean sheet in their past seven matches, this was another victory earned by their solidarity at the back.

Ranieri’s team play Arsenal next weekend at The Emirates, and should they manage to take all three points home, the question might be ‘who can catch Leicester’ as opposed to ‘can Leicester really win?’

Leicester sit top of the table, five points in front of second-placed Tottenham and eight points adrift of Arsenal, who play Bournemouth today at Dean Court.
