Champions Manchester City edge past a resilient Leicester City side in a hard-fought contest. Leicester City created several chances, including a Jamie Vardy goal ruled out for offside.

However, in the end, the Citizens were the superior team as they climbed into second place in the Premier League table.

This was a challenge for Manchester City heading back into the swing of club football. Granted it was not their very best performance but it was an excellent result nonetheless.

Manchester City edge Leicester for 2nd place

Bernado Silva lashed home from close range in the 62nd minute. Joao Cancelo’s strike deflected into his path off Caglar Soyuncu to give Pep Guardiola’s men a third consecutive victory.

Ederson brilliantly kept out an early effort from Harvey Barnes. The winger later sent a header against the top of the crossbar. Striker Jamie Vardy saw a goal declared offside after he raced between Ruben Dias and Aymeric Laporte and rounded the Ederson.

However, the Foxes’ chances were few and far between and they were indebted to the superb Kasper Schmeichel. The Dane made a string of saves to prevent the visitors from winning by an even greater margin.

Manchester Leicester, Six Sports
Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva scored the only goal of the game to give Manchester City a deserved, but hard-earned victory

He denied Gabriel Jesus twice from point-blank range. Parrying a Ferran Torres effort, he was at full stretch to turn a Bernardo drive round the post.

For his 250th match as a Premier League manager, Brendan Rodgers handed starts to Ryan Bertrand and Jannik Vestergaard. Timothy Castagne also came in at right-back for the home side. Ademola Lookman too was handed a debut from the bench later in the game.

Leicester City were looking to secure back-to-back home wins to start a top tier season for the first time since 1966.
