The Blues’ seventh clean sheet in eight games was also key to the victory on a difficult playing surface that had been used to host an NFL game on Sunday.

Just six minutes were on the clock when Raheem Sterling sprung onto a loose header from ex-City man Kieran Trippier - induced by a raking 60-yard Edersonpass - and raced to the by-line.

A superbly subtle stop-start feint by Sterling beat Trippier for a second time before he crossed for Mahrez to finish – the former Leicester man pointing to the heavens in recognition of a traumatic time for everyone connected with the east midlands club.

That early goal set up a pulsating game, with City bossing possession but passing up a number of chances despite typically silky build-up play.
