Manchester City hold on to 1-0 lead to beat Leicester

Bernardo Silva propelled Manchester City to a hard-fought victory against Leicester on Saturday – scoring in the 14th minute before City had to play defence for the rest of the game.

Silva threatened again seven minutes later, forcing Schmeichel to tip a shot from the edge of the area around the post. It was a busy afternoon for Schmeichel, who thwarted Torres and Jesus before the break.

Brendan Rodgers, Leicester‘s manager, looked to his bench for solutions, and two of his substitutes nearly combined for an equaliser in the 75th minute. But City’s Keeper rushed off the line to smother Ademola Lookman’s shot after lovely work by Kelehchi Iheanacho.

Pep Guardiola’s team may have stumbled at the start of this season but here they served a reminder that finishing above them will still be mighty tough.
