Sensational four goals by Aguero puts Man City 16 points clear

Sensational four goals by Aguero puts Man City 16 points clear

Puel has confirmed Mahrez will not feature against the Premier League leaders when Leicester visit the Etihad on Saturday, live on Sky Sports Premier League.

Tottenham host Arsenal at Wembley tonight (8.30pm local time) aiming to crush the optimism created by the Gunners' new-look forward line while the absent Riyad Mahrez will be missed by both teams at the Etihad.

"Hopefully as soon as possible he comes back with Leicester and plays at his level".

"I think Riyad is not available for Saturday's game", Puel said in his pre-match briefing on Thursday.

"It is a good challenge to play our football".

"He's a human being", PFA chief executive Gordon Taylor told TalkSport radio.

But there is still a contract to abide by.

Earlier this season, the Citizens registered a 2-0 win over their opponents at King Power Stadium. He took the pay rise, and ceded some control of his immediate destiny.

"It's important this remains inside the club and private, not in the public".

The Manchester City juggernaut rolls on.

The past year has also witnessed significant inflation in transfer fees as the world record was more than doubled in August by Neymar's 222 million euro (then USD$262 million) move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain.

Aguero threatened in the area but showed too much of the ball to Christian Fuchs and Leicester, having already warned City of their intention to counter, quickly broke upfield. Still, they remain - except for two or three players - the same. "I hope he can come back and work hard with the team sooner rather than later", said the Foxes manager. The central England club is hovering around eighth place, far from the relegation places and unlikely to qualify for Europe.

"We can play against Manchester City with a fantastic spirit and collective play and make a difference and I hope we will see this on Saturday".

For the visitors, Jamie Vardy is the best option at 3/1 odds at Unibet.

"We love to play football but we've been playing in four competitions, every three or four days, over the past two to three months. He's a magnificent footballer".

Schmeichel's shocking clearance set up Aguero to complete his hat trick, but City's No. 10 saved his best moment of the game for injury time with a stunning 20-yard strike that smashed in off the underside of the bar to take his tally for the season to 28.

Bernardo Silva saw a floated effort drop just wide as City looked for a fourth, and soon afterwards Ilkay Gundogan was booked after bringing down Mahrez as he set off on a unsafe run towards the City area but the free kick came to nothing.
