Sergio Aguero miss penalty as Gabriel Jesus netted a late goal in Manchester City 1-0 victory over Leicester City in the Premier League encounter at King Power Stadium.
In the battle of third versus second, Jamie Vardy hit the post for Leicester early on after being put through one-on-one in a goalless opening period.
Schmeichel saved striker Sergio Aguero’s penalty on 62 mins after VAR ruled for a handball on Dennis Praet, who blocked Ilkay Gundogan’s shot with a raised elbow.
Substitute Jesus found some space on the right-hand side of the box before dispatching the ball past Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel and the goal was later confirmed by VAR after it was checked for offside.
The result means second-placed Manchester City are now seven points ahead of Leicester, while the Foxes are now only six points ahead of fourth-placed Chelsea with 11 to play.
