Man City were completely dominant in every area but the scoreline stayed goalless in the first half – coming closest through Kevin De Bruyne’s free-kick off the crossbar – as Leicester failed to register a single shot, touching the ball just once in the opposition box.
Leicester 0-2 Man City: Benjamin Mendy and Gabriel Jesus give Premier League leaders victory
The champions elect deserved their opener through Benjamin Mendy (58), only his second goal for Man City, coolly curling home from 12 yards after a smart turn in the box.
Pep Guardiola’s side wrapped up the win through birthday boy Gabriel Jesus (74), initially played through by De Bruyne’s eye-of-a-needle pass, before exchanging passes with Raheem Sterling at close range and converting at close range.
The result means Man City are 17 points clear of second-placed Man Utd, who have two games in hand, and are a maximum of 11 points away from securing the title.
