Leicester City missed a great chance to surpass Arsenal at the top of the table when they drew goalless with Manchester City at the King’s Power Stadium.

Losing to Liverpool on Boxing Day, anticipation was high regarding Leicester’s performance against City. Leicester did not disappoint and Claudio Ranieri’s side displayed an impressive performance only to be second to Arsenal on League Table due to goal difference.

Both Leicester and Manchester City had great opportunities to score. However, goalkeepers Kasper Schmeichel and Joe Hart responded with tremendous saves.

Premier League’s hot property, Jamie Vardy showed that he is still a human being when he blew away a shot over goal in the first half. Sergio Aguero was not far off the list either, when the Argentine missed a sitter from inside the six-yard box.

Aguero has not been the same player as the Premier League remembers him to be with the lethal striker struggling with injuries which have affected his performance. He had a couple of goal scoring opportunities in the match. One of them in the second half should have been converted into goal. However, a heavy touch caused the shot to be miles off target. He was substituted by Wilfred Bony in the 62nd minute.

On a night when none of the sides were able to find the net, Leicester performed with spirit and energy. It was the undercard’s of Ranieri’s brigade who caught the eye of the supporters compared to Leicester’s star players - Vardy and Riyad Mahrez. N’Golo Kante, Wes Morgan and Christian Fuchs were the cream of the crop for The Foxes.

Manchester City’s away form has been poor this season and the tradition continued at the King’s Power Stadium. Three wins, three draws and three losses with eight goals scored and eight conceded doesn’t look like the CV of a team gunning for championship. Manuel Pellegrini may have to put things right in order to make a charge for the championship, because it is on the travels where titles are won.

"I think we made a very good match. It was difficult. We played well, we created some chances. I wanted to see how my players responded after the Liverpool defeat and they responded well.” Ranieri said in the post-match press conference, as per BBC.

“I think we did more than Leicester to win the game. We had more possession, more attempts, more options but it was a tough game against a tough team playing away.” City coach Pellegrini stated after the match.

Up next, Leicester will host Bournemouth on Jan. 2, 2016 while Manchester City will travel to Watford.
