Manchester City condemned to a five goal defeat by Leicester

Manchester City were demolished by Leicester in a five goal thriller at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

England forward Jamie Vardy was on target thrice, two being from the penalty spot in the worst defeat of the new season for Pep Guardiola.

Riyad Mahrez opened the scoring for Manchester City sending the ball past the far most corner in the 4th minute.

Things were level before the end of the first when Vardy converted from the penalty spot after he was brought down by Kylie Walker in the 37th minute.

The situation got worse when the England international doubled the lead in the 54th minute and four minutes later thanks to a second penalty of the match.

James Maddison made it 4-1 when his 25-yard shot was impossible to resist as new signing Ake pulled a consolation goal for City who were running out for a comeback.

Benjamin Mendy pulled James Maddison to reward the visitors the third penalty of the evening which condemned City to a humiliating home defeat.

The win ensures that Brendan Roger is on top of the Premier League table with nine points and on level with Everton who have won their respective fixtures.
