Ricardo Pereira scores stunning winner

Champions lose against Leicester City

Manchester City fell seven points behind Liverpool in the Premier League title race as Ricardo Pereira's late stunner gave Leicester a 2-1 victory at the King Power Stadium.

City, beaten 3-2 by Crystal Palace last time out, were in front after 14 minutes when Bernardo Silva finished with his left foot after being played through by Sergio Aguero.

But four minutes later Leicester were back on level terms after Marc Albrighton met Jamie Vardy's cross with his head from close range.

Then came Pereira's strike (81), before Fabian Delph was sent off for a studs-up challenge on Pereira (89), and with Liverpool beating Newcastle 4-0 and Tottenham defeating Bournemouth 5-0, the champions fell to third in the table. Leicester, meanwhile, are up to seventh.

Claude Puel: "I think we deserve the result, because I think we get more chances than City. It's a fantastic result for the team, a good reward for the mentality and togetherness since the beginning of the season."

Pep Guardiola: "The reality is there are two or three teams better than us, so they are better. We're not talking about whether we can take Liverpool or get to Liverpool or whatever, the issue is about winning another game, and thinking in ourselves about how we can improve."
