Manchester City's players are in awe of Kevin De Bruyne's creativity
Feb 12 2018
Foxes striker Jamie Vardy burst away from De Bruyne's attempted tackle in midfield, before taking on £57m man Laporte.
After a sluggish first half in front of a Premier League record crowd of 83,222 at Wembley, Kane jumped highest to head home his seventh derby goal in seven games and 23rd in the league this season.
Despite having the majority of possession in the half, Manchester City were failing to create much of anything in the middle.
We needed it. It was hard to play them in the first half with them playing a 5-4-1, but in the second half we found more space with the wingers. This time it was Sergio Aguero who got a tap in from another wonderful Kevin De Bruyne cross, finding a tiny gap between the Leicester centre halves to find the feet of the Argentinian. Still, they remain - except for two or three players - the same.
From there, however, City took the control to which they have become accustomed this season, especially at home.
Aguero scored his second five minutes later from, you guessed it, a De Bruyne pass.
The Algeria winger missed Leicester's last two PremierLeague matches and hasn't been training at the club.
Leicester City's first shot on goal in the match came in the 23rd minute, which just happened to be the shot that equalized the match.
Aguero's fourth and final goal in the 90th minute was, however, the pick of the lot. Talismanic Belgium pass master, Kevin De Bruyne, located Sterling with his trademark passes for the opener of the game.
In the end this was another routine victory for Manchester City, and another big step towards the league title.
"Leicester have the fundamentals they have from a long time ago that helped them to be champions in the PremierLeague", he explained.
The City boss defended his call saying that a combination of injuries and a youth team game at the same time had contributed to his decision to travel to Turf Moor with just 17 players.
