Manchester City’s unhappy Christmas continued as Leicester fought back from a goal down to inflict another defeat on the champions, who also had Fabian Delph sent off. Pep Guardiola’s side thus fell below Tottenham Hotspur to third in table, seven points adrift of leaders Liverpool. The title is a two-horse race? City hope not.
Leicester deserved to add the scalp of Pep Guardiola’s team to that of Chelsea, which they claimed on Saturday. They did so thanks to a superb long-range goal by Ricardo Pereira nine minutes from time. Marc Albrighton had headed an equaliser in the first half, five minutes after Bernardo Silva fired the visitors into the lead.
