Harry Maguire scored an injury-time equalizer to help Leicester City earn a 2-2 draw against at the King Power Stadium yesterday. Manchester City, however, made it 17 PL wins in a row as they beat Bournemouth 4-0 with the help of the Sergio Aguero’s brace at the Etihad to open up a 13 point lead.

Leicester City 2 - 2 Manchester United

Harry Maguire produced a dramatic stoppage-time equalizer to earn 10-man Leicester City a 2-2 draw against Manchester United. The game looked to be headed for a United win thanks to a Juan Mata brace after Jamie Vardy’s 50th Premier League goal and substitute Daniel Amartey being sent off for two bookings in quick succession. However, an extra time Maguire finish from an Albrighton freekick saw the hosts steal a point at the very end.

After the loss, United retained the second spot in the table but City have now extended their lead to an astonishing 13 points at the top.

Manchester City 4 - 0 AFC Bournemouth

Manchester City managed to stretch their winning run to 17 games with a 4-0 victory over Bournemouth at the Etihad Stadium. Sergio Aguero was the star of the show as he scored twice for the City after he opened the goal scoring on the night after 27 minutes. 

City were not at their usual best but still managed to rout Bournemouth, who have now lost back-to-back games 4-0 after last week's thrashing by Liverpool and are without a win in seven matches.

The hosts controlled the game in the second half and Sterling didn’t miss the chance to double the team’s tally for the night after scoring his seventh goal in five games against the Cherries.

After Aguero doubled his tally with a well-taken header, Danilo scored the fourth which was his first goal for the club.

Everton 0 - 0 Chelsea

Chelsea failed to capitalize on their chances as they were held to a 0-0 draw at Everton in the Premier League on Saturday and the hosts extended their unbeaten run to seven across all competitions.

Despite their dominance in the first-half, Chelsea failed to create clear-cut chances. Eden Hazard was trying to lead the line for Chelsea and he got little support from Willian and Pedro, but without the suspended Alvaro Morata, their effort didn’t turn into a goal.

The 0-0 draw meant that Chelsea stay in third place while Everton rise to ninth in the league table.
