Mahrez: I Didn't Go On Strike Because Of Failed Man City Transfer

Mahrez: I Didn't Go On Strike Because Of Failed Man City Transfer

Leicester themselves have hit a bit of a bad patch having failed to win in any of their last two games.

But Manchester City resumed control with two goals in the space of five minutes at the start of the second half.

Manchester City cruised to a 5-1 victory over Leicester City in the late Premier League kick-off on Saturday.

Guardiola would have liked to rest Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero, but injuries to David Silva and Gabriel Jesus means he can't rotate too much.

Netting City's second in the 48th minute after Jamie Vardy had levelled proceedings, Sergio Aguero simply stole the show with three more second-half goals to kill off the game.

Thirteen points is the current gap on closest challengers Manchester United, whom they face for a second time in early April, but Pep Guardiola is adamant that the title race is not a formality with so many games still to come.

"My advice for the players is not to think how many games are left, just to look to the next one", he said. He has also contributed an impressive two goals and four assists from central defence, making him a top attacking threat. "It is important to keep a good feeling together through these difficulties". Riyad came back, and he is an important player.

The win opened the lead at the top of the log for Manchester City To sixteen whopping points ahead of the return of the UEFA Champions League next week.

The striker became just the fourth player to score 20 plus goals in four consecutive Premier League campaigns with his performance against the Foxes.

And the response to his inclusion has been mixed, with many Leicester fans praying their star can pay them back with a victor.

Further explaining the situation, Guardiola said at a press conference on Friday: "It's quite simple - we had a lot of injuries".

The ex-England coach reckons the last place on the bench should have went to a youth team player.

The Foxes could lose three consecutive league matches in this fixture for the first time since August 1961. "It's hard to start and have a certain position against them - but it's a lot of goals conceded, which is a shame".
