“Manchester City are too good for this league” Fans React On Twitter To Citizens’ 2-0 Win vs Leicester + Match Report

Match Report: Leicester City 0-2 Manchester City

Kevin De Bruyne stepped up for Manchester City once more as Pep Guardiola’s high-flying side recorded an emphatic 2-0 victory over Leicester City. It seems like no team can restrict their stellar unbeaten run so far and the fans are truly enjoying it. City have been in incredible form and are still 8 points ahead of second-placed Manchester United. Much to their luck, Tottenham Hotspur lost their match, making it a bigger victory for the club at the top.

Gabriel Jesus was on fire and he handed City the lead a minute before half-time as he made his way quite effortlessly through Leicester’s defence. The man of the hour Kevin De Bruyne then doubled their advantage hardly 5 minutes into the second-half as he slotted a stunning shot from 25 yeards.

The match marked an important milestone for De Bruyne. He has scored 16 goals while contributing 34 assists, and no other midfielder has achieved the same in 76 appearances in the competition.

 The only potentially worrying aspect for City was the fact that they had to withdraw John Stones due to a hamstring injury in the first-half. Guardiola’s men could have had a better goal difference but David Silva and Jesus missed chances to extend their lead as the second half wore on. Their attack, like always, was top-notch with little error. The most amazing thing about City’s performances is the fact that they relentlessly attack even if they end up not scoring – they never give up.

Interestingly, Vincent Kompany made a start but he put up a very lazy performance and has a long way to go if he wants to play more often. He was also lucky to not be sent off as he brought Jamie Vardy down. Luckily for Kompany, referee Graham Scott gave him only a yellow card.

At certain times, City’s trademark high-pressing attack was absent in the early stages but they made a very strong comeback to make up for lost time. City finished the first-half strongly as Silva teed up Jesus for the opener. From that point on, Guardiola’s men were impressive on the counter-attack and that ultimately resulted in Sane finding De Bruyne and the former Chelsea man made no mistake in connecting the dots.

This win puts City in a very strong point and this could prove to be pivotal in the proceedings hereafter. If anything, Guardiola appears to be making his team stronger and their performances on the field only seem to be a true testament to the same.
