Ricardo Pereira scores stunning victor for Leicester against Manchester City

Share

Ricardo Pereira dented Manchester City's title challenge with a stunning victor as Leicester gained revenge for their Carabao Cup quarter-final defeat over the reigning champions.

MOHAMED Salah struck from the penalty spot as Liverpool increased their lead at the top of the Premier League table to six points on a dramatic Boxing Day.

To compound Manchester City fans' woes, rivals Manchester United recorded a comfortable 3-1 win over Huddersfield at Old Trafford - their second win in two games under new boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer since he took over from the sacked Jose Mourinho. We lose a game, it happens.

Nonetheless, with or without Silva, Leicester will have to produce an even better performance than they did against Chelsea last week to be able to get anything off City. Kevin De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero both came off the bench against Palace after dealing with injuries over the past few weeks.

The pressure, though, was further eased yesterday after his players followed up an away win at Chelsea with a 2-1 victory against defending Premier League champions Manchester City.

Liverpool won the last of their league titles in 1990, a fact of which they are regularly reminded by opposing fans, and by none more so than those of Manchester United, who have seen their side crowned champions 13 times during the intervening period.

Tottenham did their best to prove it will not be a two-horse race for the title as they romped to a 5-0 win over Bournemouth.

"It was the same as Crystal Palace", Guardiola said.

Benitez said it would be a "miracle" if the Toon stayed in the Premier League this season but a shock win over his former employers, with Newcastle having lost just twice on the road this season, would be a good place to start. "We have to find an explanation and we need a good reaction from all the lads at Southampton".

It looked set to matter little on 14 minutes, where Leicester were caught square at the back for Bernardo Silva's opener. "We don't have a player like Fernandinho in his position and we have to think about how we solve it".
