1-0 victory for Man City over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium; Kevin De Bruyne’s free kick in the second half gave the visitors all three points.

Prior to Sunday’s match between Arsenal and Nottingham Forest, Man City are now in first place in the Premier League, while Leicester is still in last place. In the absence of Erling Haaland, Kevin De Bruyne’s magnificent second-half free-kick was enough to give Man City a 1-0 victory at Leicester City, moving the Premier League champions to the top of the standings.

Pep Guardiola’s team won the closely contested game at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon thanks to De Bruyne’s swerving 49th-minute free-kick that flew up and over the Leicester defense from 25 yards out and into the goal off the inside of the post, leaving Danny Ward helpless.

Man City: Kevin De Bruyne's free kick sends them to top of the Premier League

In order to overtake Arsenal at the top of the table before their home match against Nottingham Forest on Sunday, City made light of the absence of the Premier League’s top scorer, who had started every game this season after his summer move and scored 22 goals but had not recovered from an ankle knock in time to feature.

The rest of the top-flight games on Saturday will determine where Leicester stands in relation to the drop zone. This is because their three-match winning streak at the King Power Stadium, during which they had not given up a goal, came to an end.
