Leicester 0 – Man City 2
Manchester City continued to look awesome in the Premier League on Saturday.
The Sky Blues strengthened their first place position with a 2-0 win away at Leicester.
Last season Man City lost list fixture as Jamie Vardy scored a hat-trick.
And Vardy could have scored early on, but he was wiped out by Vincent Kompany, who was lucky to avoid a red.
But then City settled. Gabriel Jesus scored on the stroke of halftime to give City the lead, while Kevin De Bruyne scored a brilliant second after the break.

John Stones out for six weeks?
But City’s day was ruined by a first half injury to England international John Stones.
After 20 minutes, Guadrdiola was forced into a change when John Stones went down with what looked like a hamstring injury.
Stones picked up the injury without any contact from any opponent.

He was replaced by Eliaqum Mangala, and after the match rumours came out about the extent of Stones’s injury.
Some are speculating the centre half will be out for six weeks. That’s likely to rule Stones out until 2018.

Man United & Tottenham
If true, Stones will miss the Manchester derby at United.
United host City at Old Trafford on December 10.
Man City’s full fixture list until the new year is as follows:
Feyenoord, Huddersfield, Southampton, West Ham, Shakhtar Donetsk, Man United, swansea, Tottenham, Leicester, Bournemouth, Newcastle, Crystal Palace.
The Sky Blues take on Watford on January 2.
Will the likes of Man United and Tottenham will look to capitalise on Stones’s injury, Guardiola should have Kompany, Mangala and Nicolas Otamendi to rotate through this sticky period.
