Man of the match - Leicester's Robert Huth

Leicester go six clear after outclassing title rivals Man City

Leicester City shock the Premier League once more to grab a 3-1 win away to Manchester City in the top of the table clash to extend their lead and keep their dreams of a fairytale title alive.

MANCHESTER, ENGLAND, UK (FEBRUARY 6, 2016) (REUTERS STILLS) – Robert Huth’s double and a Riyad Mahrez goal sent Premier League leaders Leicester City six points clear after a stunning 3-1 victory at shell-shocked title rivals Manchester City on Saturday (February 6).

Leicester produced another exhilarating counter-attacking performance, playing with confidence and swagger in the top-of-the-table clash at the Etihad stadium.

Poor marking allowed defender Huth to sweep in Mahrez’s free kick, via a deflection off Martin Demichelis, after three minutes.

Playmaker Mahrez finished off a swift break to score his 14th league goal of a hugely impressive season and double Leicester’s lead three minutes into the second half.

Huth headed in a corner on the hour to make it 3-0, proving that Leicester, on 53 points from 25 games, have the quality and belief to make a sustained challenge for a first English top-flight crown.

Sergio Aguero headed a late consolation for the hosts.
