It wasn't very easy for City in the early minutes of the game as most of their efforts were neutralised by the Foxes.

The Etihad Stadium side had an opportunity to take the lead in the opening half but the goal was ruled out for offside and till the end of the first stanza, none of the two teams got close.

Brendan Rodgers men on the other hand maintain their five points gap over Chelsea who also lost to struggling West Bromwich Albion earlier this weekend.

With the current standing, the Foxes will play in the Champions League next term, but they must ensure they keep the momentum until the end of the season.
