Leicester City play out 0-0 draw with Manchester City

Leicester City again showed they could mix it with the big guns, going level on points with Premier League leaders Arsenal after drawing 0-0 with title rivals Manchester City on Tuesday.

The clash between the division’s two top-scoring sides provided plenty of entertaining moments but keepers Kasper Schmeichel and Joe Hart were equal to everything thrown at them at the King Power Stadium.

Jamie Vardy, the league’s joint leading scorer with 15 goals alongside Romelu Lukaku of Everton, wasted Leicester’s best chance late in the first half.

Manchester City, who have not won away in the league since September, went close through Raheem Sterling and Nicolas Otamendi.

Hosts Leicester, who suffered their first defeat in 11 league games at Liverpool on Saturday, have 39 points from 19 games and trail Arsenal on goal difference.

Manchester City, without defender Vincent Kompany who could be out for another three weeks with a calf problem, leapfrogged Tottenham Hotspur to go into third place. They trail the top two teams by three points.

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri thought his side showed signs of fatigue at Anfield but was delighted with their effort on Tuesday, saying a point apiece was a fair result.

“I wanted to see a reaction from the Liverpool game and it was good,” the Italian told reporters.

“We were calm, tried to do our job. We created chances but so did Manchester City. The draw is right.”
