Leicester City rediscovered last season’s title-winning form at the King Power Stadium on Saturday evening, with Claudio Ranieri’s men beating Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City 4-2.

The game also saw Jamie Vardy find his shooting boots again, with the England striker firing home a fine hat-trick.

The Foxes found themselves 2-0 up within the first five minutes, with Vardy and then Andy King (with a lovely curling finish) shocking the Citizens.

Things got even worse for City on 20 minutes when a rejuvenated Vardy fired home after a deft touch from Riyad Mahrez.

City were all over the place at the back, and a horribly misplaced pass from John Stones in the second-half allowed Vardy to fire home, albeit from an almost impossible angle.

The Citizens did rally late on, with Aleksandr Kolarov netting a superb free-kick before sub Nolito made it 4-2 at the death.

However, overall the Mancunian giants were at sixes and sevens at the back throughout while they badly missed the suspended Sergio Aguero in attack.

The result sees City stay fourth, four points behind leaders Arsenal, with Chelsea able to go seven points clear of Guardiola’s men if they can win on Sunday.

As for Leicester, after their sobering midweek mauling at the hands of Porto, they looked far more like their title-winning selves, with Vardy and Mahrez back on form.
