Cape Town - Vincent Kompany scored what could turn out to be a title-winning goal as Manchester City returned to the summit of the Premier League table following a 1-0 victory over Leicester City on Monday night.
City came into the game at the Etihad Stadium on the back of 12 successive Premier League wins, but they were up against a Foxes side which have improved greatly since Brendan Rodgers took charge and who also defeated the Citizens on home soil on Boxing Day.
And, while the hosts enjoyed the majority of possession, Leicester more than held their own for the first half before defending deeply and resolutely after the break.
But, just as it looked like it might not be City's night, veteran defender Kompany popped with a stunning pile-driver 20 minutes from time to snatch the win.
The three points leave City one ahead of Liverpool going into Sunday's final round of fixtures and knowing a win at Brighton will see them defend their title.
