Runaway Premier League leaders Manchester City have taken another step closer to the title thanks to a ruthless 2-0 win at Leicester.
The 2019 winners are nailed on to wrestle the title from Liverpool in the coming weeks as they aim for an unprecedented treble.
Pep Guardiola’s side absolutely dominated the opening 45 minutes at the King Power with Leicester working overtime to keep them out.
The Foxes’ game plan worked perfectly before the break with Man City kept at arm’s length in the East Midlands.
But Pep’s charges did almost break Leicester’s resistance on 23 minutes as Belgian star Kevin De Bruyne smacked a free kick against the crossbar.
However, the league leaders refused to panic after the restart as they probed and pushed before Benjamin Mendy finally broke through on the hour.
Gabriel Jesus’ whipped cross into the box caught the Foxes in a tangle at the back post and the French international kept his head to steer past Kasper Schmeichel.
That strike eased the pressure as they pushed to wrap it up late on with De Bruyne and Jesus combining brilliantly to clinch it.
De Bruyne’s laser guided pass released Raheem Sterling and his cut back was buried by the Brazilian.
