Premier League leader Manchester City took a well-deserved victory against Leicester in third place, but it took almost an hour before the first goal came.
After 59 minutes, a couple of quick and successful challenges followed by a shot from just outside the penalty area by Marc Albrighton might have resulted in another goal for Kasper Schmeichel.
The article is updated.
Leicester bravely tried to excel, but were fouled in the second goal. Kevin De Bruyne played wonderfully until Jesus. The Brazilian combined with Raheem Sterling and got the ball back. He could easily put in 2-0 when just over a quarter of an hour remained of ordinary time.

Manchester City had the ball, as usual, by far the most in the first 45 minutes. Riyhad Mahrez, Sergio Agüero and De Bruyne created great chances. The latter with a free kick in the crossbar.
In addition, Fernandinho also had a rush in the net early in the match, but Agüero was offside – and in Schmeichel’s way – so it was correctly canceled.
Thus, Manchester City now has 17 points down to Manchester United in second place – the Blues with two games more played. Leicester in third are 18 points behind (with one game more played). Chelsea, who lost by a shocking 2-5 at home to WBA earlier today, are still five points behind Leicester. The two have both played 30 games.
PS! Manchester City will next Tuesday play at home against Borussia Dortmund and Erling Braut Haaland in the Champions League. Then there is Leeds in the league. Leicester face West Ham away in the league next weekend.
