Manchester City vs. Leicester: Premier League highlights and recap

But their lead lasted only 21 minutes as Jamie Vardy helped scupper a City counter-attack, getting the better of Oleksandr Zinchenko before finishing coolly past Ederson.

Club journalist Rob Pollard has taken a look back at an unforgettable evening at the Etihad. He chipped Schmeichel for his third goal, giving City a 4-1 advantage. And then the second goal was hard too, it was difficult to find a new feeling after that. "It's a decision for the player and the club, not Manchester City". "Leicester has put him on the map", Sutton told BBC Radio 5 live.

"We can play against Manchester City with a fantastic spirit and collective play and make a difference and I hope we will see this on Saturday".

With the pair ably backed by a sensational supporting cast, including Leroy Sane, David Silva, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus, City have scored 20 more goals than the next-best attacking side, Liverpool, and amassed 16 points more than city rivals United, in second place. For a player operating predominantly in wide areas, that's a remarkable number.

But their second goal changed the game.

"I'm very happy because most of the goals come from his assists and I just have to hit the ball and obviously I'm very happy for him as well".

His vision and weight of pass is exceptional.

The assists bring De Bruyne's tally to five in his last four Premier League games for City, which is more than he recorded in his previous 14 games combined.
