The Citizens face a trip to Leicester City in a 3 pm clash, that should prove a stern test for Pep Guardiola and co.

City head into the game on the back of two 5-0 hammerings of Norwich and Arsenal. However, they did lose their opening bout of the season 1-0 vs Tottenham.

Leicester have also lost one and won two in the league so far this term, with a 4-1 defeat at the hands of West Ham sandwiched between victories over Wolves and Norwich.

The Foxes, meanwhile, boast a decent record against Pep Guardiola’s Man City of late.

They beat the Sky Blues 5-2 at the beginning of last season, before also picking up a 1-0 win in August to clinch the Community Shield.
