Gabriel Jesus Kicks City To Third Position On Premier League Table

Manchester City got their pound of flesh today after they held on to beat Leicester City and move back into third place, with Gabriel Jesus scoring the second goal to put the host up by 2-0 before Okazaki scored for Leicester City in the 42nd minutes.

Mahrez was brought down by Gael Clichy in the 18-yard-box which gave the Foxes a penalty and an opportunity to level up at late minute, but referee Bobby Madley disallowed Riyad Mahrez’s goal as he took the spot-kick and touched the ball with his right foot as well as his left before scoring.

Madley immediately ruled the goal out for a double-touch and awarded the home side a free-kick. The referees decision was a very big relief to Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola who knows that a win was very necessary for his side to maintain their top four dream.

With the win, Manchester City have moved to the third position with two matches left to end the season, but they will need a minimum of three points to finish in the top four.

The hosts had dominated the first half at the Etihad Stadium, and looked like they were cruising to victory when they went 2-0 up.
