Jamie Vardy hit a hat-trick as Leicester exposed Manchester City's defensive flaws with a stunning 5-2 win at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.

Pep Guardiola's side went ahead after just four minutes thanks to Riyad Mahrez's thunderous strike.

But that was as good as it got for City as Vardy tore Guardiola's creaky defence to pieces with his pace and superb movement.

Kyle Walker's foul on Vardy led to a penalty that the striker converted himself before the break.

Vardy struck again with a fine finish in the second half and netted another spot-kick after being fouled by Eric Garcia.
