Manchester City vs Leicester City, Premier League preview

Their dominance in unrivalled in recent years, but of the four occasions they've dropped points this year, three have come since December 31, so they're not quite in the form they were last time we played.

Leicester City winger Riyad Mahrez has ended his self-imposed exile by returning to training. I don't know what is going to happen. It was claimed at the beginning of the January transfer window that the Blues were interested in signing Mahrez, but no deal was ever reached and he subsequently remained with the Foxes. We needed it. It was hard to play them in the first half with them playing a 5-4-1, but in the second half we found more space with the wingers.

Sky Sports pundit Neville had criticised Guardiola for only naming six substitutes for the 1-1 draw at Burnley last Saturday and not giving the seventh and final place to a youth team player.

The win extended City's Premier League lead to 16 points while Harry Kane netted again as Tottenham beat North London rivals Arsenal.

But, Hudson Valley Congressman Sean Patrick Maloney, a fellow Democrat, doesn't see it that way. Paul said that he had spoken to President Trump Thursday afternoon about the situation.

After recording the superb victory over Leicester, City's players were all smiles in and around the centre circle as they congratulated each other with hugs and handshakes.

"We made a good performance and when one guy is able to score four goals, he deserves all the credit and the nice words", Guardiola said after the game.

Firstly, he played a classy ball to Raheem Sterling who opened the scoring for City and then the Belgium ace set-up not one but two of Sergio Aguero's goals, before the Argentine striker completed his hat-trick in stoppage time with a belter of a strike. Although there's a clear misunderstanding between the player and club, I don't think there's any denying that Riyad Mahrez is one of, if not the best player the Foxes have available to them. "The best way is to come back and enjoy his football", Puel said. "We are a squad and now it's important to move forward together".

"We will have 18 players tomorrow, so Gary Neville can be happy", added Guardiola. I hope he can come back with a good attitude and prepared to work, but he will need time, and time to be match-fit. "We've done it this way and we'll continue", he said.
