Leicester City will feel there's no better time to be playing Manchester City, as their busy winter schedule seems to be taking its toll.

Manchester City were linked to the 24-year old in the January transfer window, but they chose to buy Athletic Bilbao's Aymeric Laporte instead for a record £57.1 million.

"I have been a part of the Leicester City team that has achieved much success including promotion to the Premier League and being champions of the league". But this game belonged to Aguero, who once again illustrated why he is one of the best marksmen in Premier League history.

Following good offensive play from Bernardo Silva, Kevin De Bruyne whipped a fantastic first-time cross into the box for Raheem Sterling to tap home.

His second goal was a reward for his own hard work, closing down Kasper Schmeichel and forcing the keeper into a mistake before Kevin De Bruyne threaded a ideal pass in behind for Aguero to latch onto.

Man City have a 13-point lead at the top of the table, so they can be forgiven to take the foot off the gas tomorrow.

De Bruyne had a hat-trick of assists, including the pass of the match in the second half.

Tottenham Hotspur host Arsenal at Wembley this weekend aiming to crush the optimism created by the Gunners' new-look forward line while Riyad Mahrez will be missed by both teams at the Etihad.

The Englishman has now scored more goals against Guardiola's City ahead of Lionel Messi (four) and Eden Hazard (three).

Guardiola reasoned that he was unable to call up a youth teamer as City's U23 side had played Swansea the night before while young striker Lukas Nmecha was deemed unavailable for selection following his recent promotion to the first-team squad. As a result, I think they will leave Manchester with a loss.

Kasper Schmeichel has acknowledged that he can understand the disappointment of Riyad Mahrez after his failed move to Manchester City.

Pep Guardiola's side didn't give their opponents any chance of mounting an attack during what was a commanding second half display. It was a brilliant way to grab his third goal, and finished off Leicester completely in emphatic style. The Belgian picked up the ball on the right-hand side, slipping the ball through to Aguero, whose fierce shot was too strong for Schmeichel to keep out at the near post.

"Riyad remains a greatly valued member of Claude Puel's squad and is focused, together with his teammates, on achieving further success with Leicester City".
