Ghana defender Daniel Amartey made English Premier League appearance after nearly two years for Leicester City against Manchester City.


Amartey displayed a five-star performance as the Foxes inflicted a 5-2 home defeat on Manchester City in their match-week three clash at the Eithad Stadium.

A Jamie Vardy hat-trick inspired visitors Leicester to a stunning victory over Manchester City at Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
Vardy, the first player to score a Premier League treble against Pep Gurdiola's side since he also did so in December 2016, converted a penalty either side of a clever, flicked finish over goalkeeper Ederson from Timothy Castagne's low cross.
Former Foxes midfielder Riyad Mahrez had put the hosts ahead after four minutes, smashing a sublime first-time strike into the top corner.
However, the hosts were pegged back before half-time as Vardy blasted his first spot-kick into the roof of the net after he had been fouled by Kyle Walker.
The 33-year-old striker - last season's top scorer - put the visitors in front nine minutes after the restart from summer signing Castagne's pass, before winning a second penalty from Eric Garcia, which he drilled into the bottom corner.
In an eventful finale, James Maddison nestled an excellent 25-yard strike into the top corner to seemingly put the result beyond doubt - but Nathan Ake headed in his first Manchester City goal to offer a glimmer of hope.
That hope was extinguished just four minutes later, though, as - with Vardy substituted off - Youri Tielemans scored Leicester's third penalty after Maddison was pulled back by Benjamin Mendy.
The 25-year-old enjoyed the entire duration of the match with a stellar performance.
Amartey missed the entire 2019/20 season due to an ankle injury.
