Every game that has taken place in the last few weeks for Liverpool and Man City have been nerve-wracking, because the title is on the line every time they play. Liverpool were able to beat Newcastle 3-2 on the weekend, therefore Man City needed to beat Leicester to remain one point ahead.

Man City made one change from the Burnley game, as Phil Foden came in to replace Leroy Sane. The home team started nervously and struggled to put many passes together. In fact, Leicester went close a few times early on and had it not been for Vincent Kompany, they probably would have scored.

City only woke up around the 30-minute mark and then the chances started to come as Sergio Aguero was denied by goal-line technology and then moments later David Silva fired just wide from outside the box.

The second half was much better from the home team’s perspective as they came out looking as if they wanted to win the game. However, credit must go to Leicester because they defended superbly, especially Youri Tielemans and Hamza Choudhury who were excellent in the middle of the pitch.

The game needed a moment of magic in order to stop the result being 0-0, and that was exactly what Vincent Kompany provided. It was a goal that only he was capable of scoring on an occasion like this, just like he did against Man United in the 2011/2012 season.
