Leicester City vs. Manchester City - Football Match Report

Leicester City vs. Manchester City - Football Match Report

"We play Arsenal and City next so it is good that we have six points more than other teams", said the Liverpool manager after his side's 4-0 win over Newcastle.

Just four days after Andros Townsend had helped Crystal Palace to a 3-2 victory over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium, Pereira hit an 81st-minute victor to give Leicester a 2-1 victory on Boxing Day at the King Power Stadium.

Lineker is a known admirer of former Barcelona boss Guardiola - who guided City to the league title with an astonishing 100 points total last season - meaning the TV pundit's message is sure to be tongue-in-cheek. We lose a game, it happens.

Bournemouth made the better start and might have taken the lead until a deflected Christian Eriksen strike put Spurs in front.

"That's the Paul I know", said Solskjaer.

The Palace defeat was City's second in the space of three Premier League games after losing at Chelsea earlier in the month.

It was a far more familiar marksman who made the game safe when Mohamed Salah scored from the penalty spot two minutes into the second half to move into a three-way lead as the league's top scorer with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Harry Kane.

A sluggish start at Old Trafford was enlivened by Nemanja Matic's tap-in after Victor Lindelhof's header header had been cleared off the line in the 28th minute.

'I don't forget how good we are. You have to be confident to play and to come back.

"We had a lack of power to create more chances".

"We have to win our games, we have to be focused, we really need to be in the mood with having tunnel vision".

All of these possibilities could make City a fair bit jittery, but they could just as easily spark them into life and kickstart a run that only ends with Pep Guardiola retaining the title - no in-betweens. Even if we beat Liverpool now it won't be easy. 'He got the ball I am sure of that, but we have to accept it, ' said Guardiola.

After providing three assists on his return to the starting line-up in a 5-1 win at Cardiff at the weekend Pogba showed the goalscoring threat he also poses from midfield by striking twice in 14 second-half minutes.

Chelsea was at Brighton with Chelsea at Watford in late kick offs.
