Man City sink Leicester for best ever PL start

18 Nov 2017
Leicester City 0-2 Manchester City

Leaders move on to 34 points from 12 matches thanks to strikes by Gabriel Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne

Goals by Gabriel Jesus and Kevin De Bruyne earned Manchester City a 2-0 win at Leicester City.

Jesus broke Leicester’s resistance on the stroke of half-time after an intricate move involving Raheem Sterling and David Silva, who teed up the Brazilian with a PL-high eighth assist of the campaign.

City went 2-0 up on 49 minutes after launching a counter-attack following a goal-line clearance by Silva from Harry Maguire's shot.

Pep Guardiola’s men surged upfield and De Bruyne thrashed a shot past Kasper Schmeichel from range.

Man City, nine points clear at the top, also managed 34 points from 12 matches in 2011/12 but are now two goals better off than six seasons ago.

The defeat leaves Leicester in 12th.
