• Football: Huth fires fairytale Leicester six points clear

    Robert Huth scored twice as Leicester City produced an astonishing demonstration of their Premier League title credentials by winning 3-1 at closest rivals Manchester City on Saturday. Huth broke the deadlock in the third minute from a Riyad Mahrez free-kick and after Mahrez had netted a brilliant solo goal early in the first half, the German centre-back headed in his second goal from a corner on the hour. Sergio Aguero replied for City with a glancing header in the 87th minute -- his seventh goal in five games -- but a rain-lashed day at the Etihad Stadium belonged to Leicester.
