Three things we learned from Leicester thành phố vs Manchester City

1. đô thị too slick: This was Pep Guardiola ball at its best. Sharp passing, clever movement & bamboozling runs saw Man city dominate this game. They should have won by more và this was a statement of how good they can be. Leicester are a fine side but Man thành phố made them look very ordinary.

2. Counter-attacking Foxes cause problems: Even though Man thành phố dominated the stats (which they do most weeks) Leicester were a real threat và created some big chances. Brendan Rodgers was missing several key defenders, & maybe that explains why Leicester couldn’t quite build up rom the back lượt thích they usually vị as they’ve become a more possession-based side in recent years. Instead, they reverted khổng lồ playing on the counter và Jamie Vardy caused problems. Perhaps the Foxes will revert khổng lồ a different style, especially against the big boys, this season.

3. Grealish gathering steam: The England international looks like he’s played for Man đô thị forever. He has slotted in very nicely và he is replicating his Aston Villa form, but now in a Man city shirt. This kind of display is exactly what Pep Guardiola wanted when he signed Grealish.

Ederson denied new Leicester loan signing Ademola Lookman on his debut, as the Brazilian goalkeeper came up huge in a one-on-one situation.
