Typically the Foxes managed to grab an unlikely equaliser, very much against the run of play, and it came from their remarkable marksman Jamie Vardy.

Manchester City have written to the body in charge of professional referees to raise their concerns over a series of unsafe challenges suffered by their players, according to widespread reports on Saturday. The midfielder opened his body and curved a flawless cross to the back post, finding Aguero who had a tap-in. But against this team you are always under pressure, and it was too easy for them to regain possession of the ball. due to their pressing. Still, they remain - except for two or three players - the same. De Bruyne forced a smart save at his near post from Schmeichel, before Sterling rounded the Danish goalkeeper, only to see his shot from a narrow angle blocked by Aleksandar Dragovic.

The Argentinian was not done there however, and he converted his fourth in devastating fashion, unleashing a stunner from the edge of the box, cannoning the ball in off the bottom of the bar.

The Manchester City legend wasn't done at three.
