Pep picks out ‘spectacular’ Man City star who ‘won the game for us’

Manchester City boss has hailed the performance of “incredible” Kevin de Bruyne, as the midfielder produced a superb display as City beat Leicester 3-1 at the Etihad.

City had to come from behind as Jamie Vardy scored a breakaway goal for the Foxes, but the hosts responded quickly as Riyad Mahrez scored against his old side in what was a standout performance from the Algerian.

Ilkay Gundogan put City ahead from the spot before the break and Gabriel Jesus scored his first goal at the Etihad since January to secure the victory.

Guardiola on Sky Sports: “I am delighted with the way we played. We created a lot and played really good.

“We kept going forward and played balls so simply. We didn’t want to make every action incredible, playing simple is why the team played good.

“I enjoyed it much more [than the Arsenal game]. Kevin De Bruyne was incredible tonight – he won the game for us.

“He has always been incredible since we’ve been together. His commitment is incredible. He’s a spectacular player.

“Normally I don’t agree with my player but I’ll make an exception – [it was the best defensive performance of the season as De Bruyne said].”
