Pep Guardiola Manchester City were humiliated at home by an in-form Leicester City side at Ethad on Sunday during their premier league clash.
Manchester City lost 5-2.
it was the first home lost of the season to Pep Guardiola Manchester City who had to play the match without any of their senior strikers. both Gabriel Jesus and Sergio Aguero are still nursing injuries and have been ruled out for months.
Manchester City took the lead in the 4th minute when Riyad Mahrez slammed his shot past a helpless Kasper Schmeichel to mark his 200th Premier League appearance. but moment later 33 year old Jamie Vardy once again proved to be Pep Guardiola’s tormentor-in-chief by canceling out Riyad Mahrez opener with a neat penalty to level things up just eight minutes prior to the interval.
the equalizer then gave Brendan Rodgers Leicester City who were initially struggling to get out of their own half the confidence to grow in the game. and 54 minute after scoring the equalizer, the 33 year old former England International added another with a delicious near-post finish before winning and converting another spot-kick to put the away side in dreamland. with this achievement, Jamie Vardy becomes the second player after Lionel Messi to score two consecutive hat-trick against Pep Guardiola side.
James Maddison came on as a substitute and added a fourth goal with a brilliant curler before Manchester City new signing, Nathan Ake scored a consolation goal on his debut to reduce the arrears. but the damaged had already been inflicted on Pep’s men as the Foxes capped a five-star showing at the Ethad to win 5-2.
Manchester City will now turn their focus to next premier league duty with a trip to an in-form newly promoted Leeds United on Saturday. but before that, they will play Burnley on Wednesday’s EFL Cup, while In-form Leicester will play host to West Ham on Sunday.
