Silva Earns Man City win at Leicester

Bernardo Silva’s instinctive second-half strike was enough to ensure Manchester City made it three straight Premier League wins with a slender 1-0 victory at Leicester.

Jamie Vardy had a goal disallowed for a marginal offside as he was denied the chance to extend his fine personal record against Pep Guardiola’s side.

Harvey Barnes struck the crossbar with a header but the visitors deserved their win, having been denied on several occasions by Kasper Schmeichel in the first half before Silva ended his 19-game wait for a club goal in all competitions, reacting quickly to tuck in a loose ball from an acute angle on 61 minutes.

The result means City move up to second place ahead of the weekend’s remaining fixtures while Leicester stay in ninth position.
