Manchester City recorded yet another convincing victory in the Premier League on Saturday, beating Leicester City 2-0 to move 17 points clear at the top of the ladder.
Goals from Benjamin Mendy and birthday boy Gabriel Jesus helped the Cityzens to a measured victory over a dogged Foxes side.
Manchester City clearly ran the show in the opening half, maintaining over 60% possession and creating numerous chances.
Fernandinho’s thunderbolt from long range was disallowed for offside early on, while Kevin de Bruyne rattled the crossbar with a free-kick of class. Gabriel Jesus and Riyad Mahrez also kept Kasper Schmeichel busy in a professional display from Manchester City.
The Foxes did not manage a shot on goal, and although they kept Pep Guardiola’s champions-elect side at bay for most of the first 45, Rodgers would have demanded a bit more from his attacking players.
