Manchester City made it three wins from their last three league games at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

A second half goal from Bernardo Silva saw Pep Guardiola's star-studded side beat Leicester City 1-0 and move up to third in the Premier League table.

It was a very competitive battle on the Foxes' home turf and the hosts will feel that they should have at least got a point from the match.

Star striker Jamie Vardy had a goal rightly ruled out by VAR after the technology correctly revealed that the Leicester man had scored from an offside position.

Premier League champions City will certainly be glad their visit to the King Power in 2021/22 is now over and Jack Grealish will likely be more pleased than the rest of the players.

That's because at one point in Leicester on Sunday, the first £100 million player in Premier League history was savagely mocked by the home team's mascot, Filbert Fox.

As Grealish went over to the visiting fans to hand one of them his match shirt, the Foxes' mascot appeared to intentionally take a dive right behind the England international.

Savage stuff from Leicester's mascot.

Grealish, who's been the most fouled player in the Premier League for quite some time now, has something of a reputation for going down rather easily on the pitch.

The 26-year-old's ability to win free-kicks as a result is certainly a huge positive for the teams he represents, though.

Prior to England's Euro 2020 campaign this summer, Grealish spoke about his role as the man who provides set-piece opportunities for others.

He said: “As long as I can keep getting as many fouls in and around the box…a coach always said to me when I was younger, it was actually Martin O’Neill.

“He said to me: ‘You never, ever want to get kicked in your own half or anything because there’s no point, you can’t do anything there. Try and get kicked around the edge of the box or in the box as much as possible’. I was a bit young and I thought, ‘Ah, OK’.

“But now obviously I understand why and I’ll take the kicks to help my team, definitely.”
