City v Leicester player reaction

Leicester star Riyad Mahrez has waved goodbye to the big time GETTY Leicester star Riyad Mahrez has waved goodbye to the big time

Claude Puel insisted neither he nor any of the Leicester squad have a problem with Riyad Mahrez after the playmaker came off the bench during the 5-1 defeat by Manchester City.

This result now puts City a mammoth 16 points clear of second-placed Manchester United ahead of their clash away to Newcastle on Sunday.

The 29-year-old now has 21 league goals this season and became only the fourth player to score more than 20 times in four successive Premier League campaigns. Guardiola also confirmed that he'll pick a full slate of seven substitutes for the match after being criticized for only choose six last weekend in a 1-1 draw against Burnley.

It took just three minutes for De Bruyne to carve out the opener with a wonderful cross for Raheem Sterling to finish at the far post.

They didn't have it all their own way, though.

After Sterling and Jamie Vardy exchanged first-half goals, Aguero took over and effectively ended the game with two strikes within eight minutes after the break.

Argentine striker Aguero netted all his goals in a devastating second half showing - twice finishing from Kevin de Bruyne's flawless passes, punishing a Kasper Schmeichel error by chipping into the net and curling in a sublime fourth.

De Bruyne's stunning pass took the entire Leicester defence out of the game.

The ball was quickly played into Aguero on the right side of the penalty box, where his shot was partially saved by the Leicester keeper but bounced in to give Aguero a five-minute brace and give the hosts a 3-1 lead.

But it was City who got on the score sheet again as Aguero completed his hat-trick in the 77th minute to bring the score to 4-1 as he pounced on a mistake by Schmeichel.

It was the seventh home game in succession that Aguero has scored and his 14th in 10 matches.

The Foxes are without Shinji Okazaki, though, who faces two weeks out with a knee injury.

It's a stunning and vital personal contribution in a season when City keep breaking records.

Puel said: "He maintained a good level, a good fitness, alone and it was important he came back quick".

He had two possible penalty shouts in either half while he nearly came close to scoring a second in the 41st minute.

Sterling looked destined to restore City's lead just before the break, only for Aleksandar Dragovic to produce a vital block after the England global had skipped past Schmeichel.
