Mendy and Jesus give Manchester City a 17-Point lead in Premier League table

Manchester City are closing in on the Premier League title after they beat Leicester City 2-0 to move 17 points clear at the top.

It was a dominant performance from Pep Guardiola’s side, who controlled the game throughout and struck twice in the second half.

Mendy opened the scoring and Jesus doubled the visitor’s lead, and truthfully, the two goals were the least City deserved.

Fernandinho had an early goal ruled out but City’s domination was rewarded after the break with Benjamin Mendy and Gabriel Jesus on the scoresheet.

Sergio Aguero started the game for City in the week that the club confirmed he would leave at the end of the season, but he couldn’t mark the occasion with a goal.

After the international break, that was a seriously impressiveperformance, and it’s also worth noting De Bruyne received the Manof the Match award for his display.

Kevin De Bruyne, who was on the bench for Belgium’s 8-0 victory over Belarus in midweek, was also in the line-up.

Guardiola was able to rest a number of key players ahead of the midweek Champions League quarter-final against Borussia Dortmund.

There’s no rest for the Blues in their hunt for a quadruple and they face Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday in the first-leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.
