A moment of magic doomed Leicester City to a 1-0 defeat against Manchester City at the King Power on Saturday.
After a goalless first half, Kevin De Bruyne scored from an ideally taken free kick. The Foxes’ late flurry made for an exciting finish, but they couldn’t find a way through the Citizens’ defense.
Their last Premier League away trip saw them suffer their first defeat of the season, falling to a 1-0 loss at Anfield. On Saturday, though, City responded perfectly with a stunning Kevin de Bruyne proving the difference at the King Power Stadium.
With top goalscorer Erling Haaland missing a Premier League game for the first time since arriving at City through injury, the visitors lacked a cutting edge in the first half, with Leicester containing them with ease.
Leicester applied pressure in the late stages of the match but could not find an equalizer despite an excellent long-range effort from Youri Tielemans, which forced Ederson to make an outstanding save.
Leicester defended well throughout the match, with City manager Pep Guardiola praising their organization.
