Leicester City 0-1 Manchester City: Jesus strikes late after Aguero penalty miss

Sergio Aguero had a penalty saved but Manchester City still managed to overcome Leicester City 1-0 thanks to a late Gabriel Jesus goal.

Gabriel Jesus came off the bench to spare strike partner Sergio Aguero’s blushes following his penalty miss as Manchester City earned a late 1-0 win over Leicester City.

Kasper Schmeichel had already frustrated the visitors on a number of occasions in Saturday’s clash prior to keeping out Aguero’s 62nd-minute spot-kick.

But just as Leicester looked to be heading for a third draw in a row, substitute Jesus – brought on for Aguero – clinically converted 10 minutes from time at the King Power Stadium.

A second win in a row for City in what has been a difficult period off the field ensures they have a seven-point gap over third-placed Leicester, who hit the post through Jamie Vardy early on in their best chance.
