Leicester City missed the chance to return to the top of the Premier League as they played out a goalless draw with Manchester City at the King Power Stadium.

Both sides had chances in an entertaining match, with goalkeepers Kasper Schmeichel and Joe Hart excelling with a number of saves.

Jamie Vardy missed Leicester's best chance when he shot over the crossbar in the first half while the Man City's Sergio Aguero missed a couple of shots too as both sides pushed for the win.
