Leicester City Beat Manchester City 1 – 3 At Ethiad To Move 5 Point Clear I England

Premier League leaders Leicester defeated their nearest rivals Manchester City with a convincing 1- 3 victory at Etihad Stadium to move five points clear.

Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini said he had “no complaints” about the result but insists his side’s hopes of winning the title are not over.

Pellegrini told BBC Sport: “Leicester played better than us. Conceding a goal from a set piece after two minutes was very important for the game.

“We had chances but it was a difficult game. I expected more from the beginning because it was very important, we are at home and playing top of the table, but we couldn’t do it.

“There are 36 points to play for, nothing is finished. It is important for us to recover our players and I am continuing to not give up because we got an unexpected defeat but we must continue.”

‘We play without pressure’ – Ranieri

Ranieri saluted his side’s defensive discipline at the final whistle, telling BBC Sport: “We played very, very compact and believed everything could be possible.

“We play without pressure because we don’t have to win the league. We must enjoy. This league is so strange and now it is important to think about Arsenal.

“I want to wait until the end of April because I know the last matches are very tough. This is a fantastic moment for the Premier League, nobody knows who can win it.”
