The players of Manchester City are again, at least briefly, the leaders of the table in the English Premier League. Today, Pep Guardiola’s team defeated Leicester 1:0 (0:0) away from home at the King Power Stadium.
Belgian Kevin de Bruyne scored the winning goal – and it was a beautiful strike directly from a free kick.
This was the ninth win of the season for the “citizens”, and now they have 29 points, one more than Arsenal, who play the match of the 14th round at home against Nottingham on Sunday at 15:00.
The home team threatened several times in the first half, but still had to wait for the lead.
The only goal of the game was seen in the 49th minute, when Kevin de Bruyne scored with a direct free kick from about twenty meters. It was the third goal of the season for the Belgian midfielder, who has 9 assists so far.
However, until the end of the meeting, City was in a subordinate position. Tielemans shot in the 54th minute, but Ederson was confident. In the 77th, Ihenacho almost missed when he shot from the edge of the penalty area. Justin, Castagne, Daka also threatened, and in the end we almost saw an own goal when the ball from Ruben Diaz was deflected in the goal-out.
