Man City go third as Leicester have penalty ruled out

Gabriel Jesus

Manchester City held on to beat Leicester City and move back into third place after referee Bobby Madley disallowed Riyad Mahrez’s late penalty for the Foxes.

Mahrez, who had been brought down by Gael Clichy, had the chance to make it 2-2 but slipped as he took his spot-kick and touched the ball with his right foot as well as his left as he sent it into the net.

Madley immediately ruled the goal out for a double-touch and awarded the home side a free-kick, to the relief of Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola and his players.
