Crazy afternoon at the Etihad. While the Citizens unrolled their football and led 4-0 at halftime, the Foxes, led by Maddison and Iheanacho, scored 3 goals in 10 minutes to return to the game. But Laporte and Sterling reassured Manchester City, which flies in the standings.
The referee waits a few minutes before letting the Foxes engage. A possible fault by Ruben Dias on the corner has been verified.
Mahrez takes the corner from the right. Ruben Dias takes advantage of the fall of Choudhury to put a header towards Sterling, who concludes from the left at close range.
Marc Albrighton heads the ball off in front of Raheem Sterling, who was about to attempt an acrobatic kickback.
Dan Amartey takes risks in his area against Riyad Mahrez, but is doing well because the Algerian makes a mistake.
Kelechi Iheanacho splits with Luke Thomas on the left. The side tears off to center. Marc Albrighton takes a header from close range, but the ball dies to the right of the goal.
Riyad Mahrez strikes a free kick from the left in the axis, at 20 meters. It is pushed back by the wall. Second chance for the Algerian: it’s in the clouds.
Yellow card for James Maddison, who cleared the ball to prevent Riyad Mahrez from playing a fast free kick.
Manchester City have only taken 3 goals in 9 home games this season. In 10 minutes, they took as much this afternoon.
The ball now sails in the feet of the Foxes. After this 5th goal, will they be able to move forward?
