Manchester City: Fans hail unlikely hero Gundogan following Leicester win

Manchester City: Fans hail unlikely hero Gundogan following Leicester win - Manchester City

After Manchester City continued their winning streak in all competitions to four games following a composed 3-1 victory over high-flying Leicester, supporters have flocked to hail unlikely hero Ilkay Gundogan following the display – with the German’s spot kick integral to securing a vital win. 

The Sky Blues went 1-0 down early in the first half courtesy of a brilliant finish from Premier League top scorer Jamie Vardy before former Foxes star Riyad Mahrez equalised for the hosts with a deflected effort.

From then on, City would show their metal in the pursuit of a lead – eventually getting a spot of luck when Raheem Sterling went down from a challenge in the area to gift Pep Guardiola’s side a deserved penalty.

Gundogan, 29, converted the spot-kick before Gabriel Jesus secured all three points later in the contest, feeding off Kevin De Bruyne’s brilliant cross for a tap in.

Even though De Bruyne’s masterclass was a pivotal reason for City’s victory, fans have heaped praise on polarising figure Gundogan for his contribution – here’s what they had to say.
