Leicester City beat Manchester City by 3-1 at the Etihad home of City who were trailing them before this game by three points.
By this feat, the Foxes have not only stretched the lead at the top of the EPL table by six points but also made an emphatic claim that they are not pretenders to the title but real contenders who mean business.
They have been ruthless in a season which has seen them upsetting bigger competitors like Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester City.
In the game today, they beat nearest rivals Manchester City with a convincing victory at Etihad Stadium to move six points clear.
Goals from Robert Huth, who scored a brace and Mahrez saw Etihad thrown into confusion ahead of the arrival of Pep Guardiola who has agreed to join the club.
Robert Huth, right footed a shot from the centre of the box to the bottom right corner as he connected a Riyad Mahrez cross following a set piece situation to stun the home crowd.

City took on the challenge and rarely looked back but the Foxes had other ideas as they punctured holes in the frail defence of the home side.
Mahrez made it 2-0 in the 48 minute from a Ngolo assist with a brilliant step-over and finish which was followed by a 60 minute Huth header from a corner-kick.
It still was City dominance in their belief to turn things around but were thwarted by the resolute defending by Leicester until Sergio Aguero found a consolation with a glancing header for them to leave it at 3-1 against them.
