  • Premier League Liverpool Open Up Six Point Lead As Manchester City Lose Against Leicester

City went down to defeat at Leicester as a late Ricardo Pereira stunner saw the Foxes come from behind after Marc Albrighton had canceled out Bernardo Silva's opener for City.

Manchester City's bid to retain the Premier League title suffered a major blow as the champions crashed to a shock 2-1 defeat at Leicester on Wednesday (Dec 26).

Ricardo blasted in a victor from the edge of the penalty area in the 81st minute after Leroy Sane's weak header to leave Manchester City seven points behind leaders Liverpool and take them below Tottenham as well.

- This is the first time Manchester City have lost consecutive Premier League games since December 2016, with the second defeat in that run also coming away at Leicester. 'What we have to do is try and change the dynamic to winning games.

But their lead only lasted five minutes as Marc Albrighton headed in from Jamie Vardy's cross, before Ricardo's stunning victor for a Leicester side who had also won 1-0 at Chelsea on Saturday.

"As soon as possible we have to try to win again for our mood, our confidence and our desire".


For the second game in-a-row, Man City took the lead before ultimately losing and Guardiola lameted the fact that his team didn't press home their advantage when they were on top.

Tottenham did their best to prove it will not be a two-horse race for the title as they romped to a 5-0 win over Bournemouth. But, just like against Palace, Guardiola's side let their opponents back into the game within minutes of going in front.

Paul Pogba - so often marginalized under Mourinho - struck a double in that game as he scored for the first time since October. Leicester climb to seventh and this result, on the back of a 1-0 win at Chelsea, will do much to quell murmurs of discontent around manager Claude Puel. "We have to find an explanation and we need a good reaction from all the lads at Southampton". The game precede a home clash with Liverpool on January 3.

- Bernardo Silva has had a hand in nine goals in his 18 Premier League appearances this season (5 goals, 4 assists) - just one fewer than in his 35 games in the competition last term (6 goals, 4 assists).

"You have to think about how to solve it when you don't have players in a position".
