LIVE
94'
FT: Leicester 0-1 Man C!! All over at the King Power Stadium! An even game was decided by two subs: Mahrez and Jesus. Leicester started the second half well. Then, Gundogan won a penalty for handball by Praet, but Aguero saw his spot kick saved. 10 minutes from time, Mahrez made a fabulous run and Jesus scored to all but secure second spot for Man C. Leicester had nothing in response. That's all from us, thanks for your company and see you again soon!
92'
Leicester attack and Fernandinho slides in to give away the throw in.
92'
Leicester sub: Perez on for Fuchs.
91'
De Bruyne runs towards the corner and wins a throw in.
90'
Three added minutes. Leicester can't get the ball off City.
87'
B Silva!!! Schmeichel throws the ball out straight to B Silva, he takes a touch and then fires wide.
85'
Still 0-1 here as City are in complete control.
81'
The VAR confirms the goal.
80'
Jesus scores for Man City!! Mahrez makes a fabulous run from midfield to near the penalty area before laying it off to Jesus who beats Schmeichel from close range. Mahrez made that goal.
79'
Jesus goes down in the box, but Chilwell wins the ball cleanly. On the counter, Vardy drives to the byline and then his cross can't find Barnes.
79'
Jesus' shot is saved by Schmeichel.
77'
Man City sub: Jesus comes on for Aguero.
75'
Great defence by Otamendi as he slides in to block Pereyra as the Leicester man is about to pull the trigger.

Corner for Man City.
71'
Mendy is penalised for a foul on Evans.
70'
Vardy volleys Pereyra's pass wide of the goal!
70'
Walker makes a strong challenge on Chilwell on this near side and it's a corner as the City man wins the ball.
68'
Tielemans' ball into the box is headed away by Fernandinho.
66'
Guardiola's men are the much better side now. Still no goals though.
64'
Man C head over from the resulting corner.
63'
What a save by Schmeichel to deny Aguero! Mahrez puts in a pass for Aguero and the goalie makes a fine save at his near post.
63'
Aguero has now missed three of six penalties this term.
62'
And Schmeichel saves it!!! Aguero hits it hard to the GK's right and the Leicester shot stopper guesses the right way. It's powerful, but at a good height and pretty much down the middle (slightly to the GK's right, but not in a corner).
61'
Penalty to Man City given by the VAR! Leicester aren't happy, but it's the right decision.
60'
Huge shout for handball as Gundogan's shot is blocked by Praet and it goes wide of the goal! Praet's arm is up and it looks a clear pen. The ref wasn't interested initially, but the VAR is looking at it.
60'
B Silva wins a corner off the defender.
58'
Man C sub: Laporte is replaced by Otamendi.
56'
Still 0-0 in Leicester and a draw is fair. Not much to report in the last few minutes.
53'
What a save by Schmeichel!!!! Rodrigo passes to De Bruyne on his left and as soon as he gets into the box, he shoots to the GK's right. Good stop by the Leicester keeper.
52'
The tempo has been upped here.
51'
Leicester have started the half better.
49'
Pereyra goes down City's left, the ball in is flicked on by Vardy's foot and then Mahrez is fouled on the counter.
46'
Barnes!!! Inside the first minute, he runs down the far flank before cutting inside from the byline and Ederson makes a fine stop.
46'
Welcome back everyone! Leicester get us going again. Iheanacho probably couldn't carry on after that clash with Ederson.
45'
Leicester HT sub: Barnes on for Iheanacho.
45'
HT: Leicester 0-0 Man C! No goals at the break in a very even contest. Both teams have been on top during spells of the first half. Leicester's best chances came through Vardy who hit the post and then Maddison who saw his free-kick saved. For City, Schmeichel has had to deny Mahrez and Aguero while Aguero had a goal disallowed for offside. Back in a bit!
45'
Mahrez hits it well wide of Schmeichel's right hand post and it's half-time!
45'
Aguero is fouled just outside the D. It will be the last play of the half.
45'
Two added minutes.
45'
Aguero has the ball in the net! De Bruyne makes a lovely run from his own half and then he passes to Aguero who finishes nicely with the help of the far post. The Argentine was miles off and the lino spotted it.
45'
Nice touch by Guardiola on the far side as the ball goes to him.
43'
Pereyra tests Ederson and it's an easy save.
41'
Iheanacho is just getting up now and he is shaken up.
39'
Nasty colllision!!! Maddison sends a chipped pass into the box, Iheanacho gets there first and heads the ball towards goal before Ederson clatter into the Leicester player. It could have easily been a penalty as the Leicester man got there first. Ederson only touches the ball after Iheanacho headed the ball onto his arm. Corner given.
37'
What a free-kick! Maddison's curling strike forces Ederson to make a tremendous stop to his right and concede the corner.
36'
Gundogan brings down Maddison just outside the area.
33'
De Bruyne's effort flies over the bar.
31'
Praet is penalised for a foul and it's about 25-30 yards from goal.
29'
Maddison's free-kick strikes De Bruyne's arm and the ball falls tamely to the keeper. There is a shout for handball, but the ref isn't interested. The Belgian definitely took a risk as his arms were up, but it struck another defender first.
28'
Superb play by Iheanacho to beat two or three defenders as he is brought down on the edge of the D by Rodrigo.
27'
A Mendy cross from this near side is easily caught by Schmeichel.
24'
De Bruyne!!! The Belgian starts the move, Mahrez weaves his way past defenders and then De Bruyne fires wide of the goal.
22'
Rodrigo wins a free-kick.
21'
Maddison passes to Iheanacho whose shot is comfortably saved. The flag was up anyway.
19'
Mendy strikes one from 25 yards, it's deflected and it's another corner.
18'
The set piece is headed by an opponent for a corner.
18'
Free-kick to City in a dangerous area here. De Bruyne over this one.
17'
Saved by Schmeichel!!! Aguero lays the pass off to Gundogan who miskicks the shot from close range and the GK stops it with his left foot.
15'
It's pouring down, by the way.
14'
Man C move the ball in Leicester's half and it ends when De Bruyne is penalised for a foul.
10'
Remember Man C play in the CL on Wednesday at Real Madrid in a last 16, 1st leg tie.
9'
Mahrez shoots from outside the box after being given the ball by De Bruyne and Schmeichel makes a fine save to the right.
8'
Vardy hits the post!!! What a chance for Leicester. Laporte is dispossessed at midfield, Tielemans feeds Vardy who is one on one and he is denied by the upright.
6'
Chilwell runs into the box, there is contact between him and Fernandinho which sees Chilwell go down. No penalty though.
4'
Maddison plays a lovely pass for Iheanacho inside the box, but the ex-City man miscontrols the ball.
4'
Maddison is brought down by Rodrigo.
2'
Great defence by Laporte! Pereyra dispossesses a City man in midfield, he threads it through to Vardy, but the Frenchman gets back.
2'
City with the early attacking here. De Bruyne finds Walker and Praet clears away from the cross.
