Set tone for defeat by conceding first-half penalty with foul on Vardy.

Sloppy throughout. Conceded City’s second penalty with shove on Vardy.

Ake 4

Allowed Castagne to go past him for Leicester’s second. Scored header.

Mendy 2

Conceded penalty for Leicester’s fifth. Appalling throughout.

Rodri 3

Sent an early long-range effort just over the bar. As good as it got.

Fernandinho 4

City skipper below his best. Replaced by Delap five minutes after restart.

De Bruyne 5

Made some surging runs but overall influence nullified by Leicester.

Mahrez 5

Scored a stunning opener early on against his old club. Little thereafter.

Sterling 4

Deployed as a false nine, little fell for him on a frustrating afternoon.

Subs:

Delap 5 (Fernandinho, 51)

Torres 5 (Foden, 64)

Leicester

Unable to keep out Mahrez’s early rocket. Untroubled thereafter.

Solid and dependable on the right of Leicester’s back three.

Superb speed and cross for Vardy to plunder Leicester’s second goal.

Praet 7

Played with industry until his withdrawal through injury 20 minutes from time.

Tielemans 8

Fine ball to Castagne for second goal. Scored fifth goal from the spot

Mendy 7

Another who went into the book for cynical foul on De Bruyne.

Justin 7

Got forward into promising positions but his final ball lacking.

Barnes 8

Threaded ball through to Vardy that won Leicester the penalty.

Two penalties and outrageous near post back-heel for a hat-trick.
