The first half was marked by two goals invalidated in the initial stage. At the beginning of the game, Brazilian Fernandinho landed a beautiful shot from outside the area in the corner of Schmeichel, but the flag caught Agüero in an irregular position and thought that the Argentine hindered the goalkeeper. In the end, Vardy received a deep pass, dribbled Ederson and scored a beautiful goal. Shirt 9, however, was also prevented.


In the second half, Manchester City followed with the ball and put pressure on Leicester to open the scoring in the 13th minute. After crossing in the area, Mendy took the leftover, dribbled the mark and, with his right foot, hit the corner to make the goal.


On the day he turns 24, Gabriel Jesus gave a gift to the Manchester City crowd, but he also received a gift from his teammates. At 29 minutes, De Bruyne found a beautiful pass for shirt 9, which he handed to Sterling. The English striker left the mark on the ground and returned it to Jesus, who only completed it for the goal.


Manchester City now turn the key and focus on the Champions League quarter-finals. Next Tuesday, Pep Guardiola’s team will face Borussia Dormtund, at home, for the first leg. Leicester returns to the field on Sunday (11), against West Ham, away from home.
