Robert Huth scored twice as Leicester sensationally thrashed title favourites Manchester City 3-1 to continue their remarkable challenge for the Premier League crown.

Riyad Mahrez also got on the scoresheet as the Foxes tore into their illustrious hosts at the Etihad Stadium, destroying the feel-good factor created by the announcement of Pep Guardiola's summer arrival.

Sergio Aguero headed a consolation in the closing minutes but City were already well beaten.

Quadruple-chasing City had hoped to pull level with Claudio Ranieri's men at the top of the table but instead ended the day trailing them by six points.

Manchester United are just a point off the Premier League leaders and local rivals Manchester City, but supporters are certainly not completely happy with the way things are going this season.

Louis van Gaal's team may boast the best defensive record in the division, conceding just 10 goals, but they are hardly playing in the vibrant attacking manner that fans are used to, despite £300million of spending since he arrived.
