Mahrez sets Leicester fresh ultimatum after 'broken £50m promise'

It's been clear for a while now that Manchester City will win be crowned Premier League champions at the end of this season.

But he and City again owed a lot to the irrepressible De Bruyne, who created his side's opening three goals in another outstanding display.

The goal, however, was simply the icing on the cake that was De Bruyne's assist, a wonderful, curling, first-time cross from the right wing that took three Leicester players out of the game before finding Sterling unmarked at the back post.

"Luckily Kevin De Bruyne plays for us", Aguero told CityTV after the match.

On 77 minutes, it was back to business for City and Aguero, who completed his hat-trick after a howler from Kasper Schmeichel in the Leicester goal.

Mahrez could make his Leicester comeback against Manchester City on Saturday - live on Sky Sports - and ahead of that game, Guardiola heaped praise on his goalkeeper Ederson.

Mahrez last played for the Foxes on January 20th, in the 2-0 win against Watford, scoring the second goal in stoppage-time. De Bruyne curled in a risky low ball behind the defense and Sterling turned it home.

Thierry Henry now has the record for most Premier League assists in a season (20 which was set in 2002/03).

Manchester City have already spent over £200m on defenders and goalkeepers since Pep Guardiola took over, but the injury concerns of Vincent Kompany and John Stones has left the superstar manager looking for backup options.

The Citizens massacred the visiting Foxes 5-1 thanks to quartet of strikes from their Argentine forward Sergio Aguero. During the 2009/10 season, Chelsea scored 103 league goals.

Despite a second transfer request from the player in eight months, Leicester reportedly held out for a deal worth £80 million ($111 million, 90 million euros), with even City's cash-rich Abu Dhabi owners unwilling to go beyond £60 million. As a result, I think they will leave Manchester with a loss.

"I am very lucky because most of the goals come from his assists - I just have to hit the ball". Meanwhile, Arsenal remain in sixth with 45 points.
