The Foxes then reduced the deficit to one through Kelechi Iheanacho, who tapped in after Ederson's tipped Maddison's strike onto the bar.

The goals kept flowing as City re-established the two-goal lead through Aymeric Laporte, who expertly looped a header into the net from a corner.

Sterling netted his second of the game with three minutes remaining, finishing calmly from Ruben Dias' knock-down inside the box to make it 6-3.
