Riyad Mahrez slips and Leicester pay the penalty against Manchester City

14 Mai 2017

The Brazilian has scored five times from seven shots on target in the Premier League for City. They were annihilated 5-0 and unsurprisingly Guardiola fielded the same side for the first time this season, meaning Sergio Aguero had to be content with a place on the substitute's bench.

Leicester had a late penalty ruled out in freaky circumstances as Manchester City held on for a 2-1 win on Saturday to move into third place in the English Premier League and close in on Champions League qualification.

City arrived at the Etihad Stadium with some reason to be optimistic. We missed chances to finish the game off and then Leicester scored an exceptional goal.

And Madley was also right to disallow the Riyad Mahrez penalty for a double kick. In this case, as Mahrez slips, he inadvertently touches the ball with his other leg too.

Gabriel Jesus: Slotted away a penalty with class to put City two up in the first half. "The referee was so courageous".

Gael Clichy fell for Mahrez's trickery at the edge of the Manchester City area, bringing the Algerian down and conceding a penalty.

What threatened to be a comfortable win became a fraught, fractious affair. Won a number of important headers in his own box when City were under pressure.

"We need one more game to be in the top four, but it's in our hands", Guardiola said.

This prompted the ref to disallow the goal as the home side held on for a crucial win in their chase to finish in the top four. For the second successive Saturday, David Silva broke the deadlock.

There was something of a sparse crowd at the Etihad for the early kick-off but the home fans should have had a goal to celebrate in only the third minute, with Fernandinho heading wide from six yards after meeting Leroy Sane's corner totally unchallenged. "I realised if I touched it I would be offside so I left it", Sterling said. Anybody who has played football, especially in goal, knows he's (Sterling) offside. "He (Sterling) was blocking my view".

In the absence of the injured Robert Huth and Wes Morgan, Yohan Benalouane was Leicester's only specialist centre-back and proved an inadequate deputy. Meanwhile, Gabriel Jesus has impressed everyone with how quickly he adapted to the pace of the Premier League. It is a return that bodes well for next season.

Guardiola added that Toure will be given a special birthday cake after the Leicester match, with the midfielder turning 34 on Saturday. Instead, the baton was handed over to the younger generation, even as a veteran railed against the passing of time. "The day I can not feel something inside of myself and I can not give my all I'll say: "finished" - as you have to be mature and well prepared for anything".
