The outstanding Kevin de Bruyne provided three assists on the night, his first as early as the third minute when he played in a menacing low cross which the Leicester defence failed to deal with, for Sterling to tap in from close range. But their second goal changed the game.

City did find themselves ahead once again in the 48th minute, however, as Aguero collected De Bruyne's teasing low cross from the left and tapped in from a couple of yards out.

With his latest goal, Vardy notched up his fifth goal against Guardiola in all competitions - the most for any player.

City players, especially Raheem Sterling, were guilty of squandering easy chances against the Clarets, and Pep Guardiola will hope for much better finishing from his side against the Foxes.

The most important thing from my point of view is he is so calm. "Congratulations to him because it's not easy to score four goals", added Guardiola.

Despite a second transfer request from Mahrez in eight months, Leicester reportedly held out for £80 million, with even City's cash-rich Abu Dhabi owners apparently unwilling to go beyond a deal worth £50 million plus a player City valued at £15 million, believed to be 21-year-old winger Patrick Roberts who is now on loan at Celtic.

While none of the school authorities wanted to talk, a senior member of the management said that they would talk the day after. The teacher-in-charge of the school said: "Guardians have told us about their concerns and we will soon take a call".

Sergio Aguero is the favourite to score at his best odds of 11/20 at BetVictor.

Manchester City will attempt to get back to winning ways in the Premier League when welcoming Leicester City to the Etihad Stadium this evening. During the 2009/10 season, Chelsea scored 103 league goals.

Mahrez trained with his team-mates and had lunch with them leaving on the coach to a hotel outside Manchester.

In their last league fixture, Manchester City dropped points only for the fourth occasion this season as they were held 1-1 by Burnley at Turf Moor. And then the second goal was hard too, it was difficult to find a new feeling after that.

He now has 14 assists in the Premier League this season, which is more than any other player, and since his debut for City in 2015, no one in Europe's top five leagues has laid on as many goals as the Belgian.
