Leicester City vs Manchester City: Recommended bets
Ferran Torres to score first – The Spaniard produced a brace against Arsenal as he looks to his new role as City’s number nine.
Torres is expected to play in the same role against Leicester and this will give him a chance to continue his strong form in front of goal.
The 21-year-old also managed two goals over the international break for Spain in World Cup qualifying.

Leicester City vs Manchester City: Match preview
Leicester City have started the season collecting six points from a possible nine.
However, Brendan Rodgers’ side have yet to really get going having produced three fairly underwhelming performances.
Despite defeating Wolves 1-0 on the opening day, it was the visitors who created the majority of the chances and will have felt disappointed not to come away with at least a point.
They were also only able to just scrape past the newly promoted Norwich City who netted a late equaliser only for VAR to rule it out.
Then, against West Ham, the Hammers emphatically defeated them 4-1, although Ayoze Perez’s red card did not help.
Manchester City have also picked up six points from their opening three fixtures.
Following their 1-0 defeat to Spurs, City have been rampant, beating both Norwich and Arsenal 5-0.
Pep Guardiola’s side have looked very dangerous in front of goal despite their lack of a recognised number nine.
Ferran Torres has been the player who has been leading the line for City, whilst Gabriel Jesus has enjoyed a new wide role.
Leicester City team news vs Manchester City
Leicester will have Ricardo Pereira available for the game after he recovered from a thigh injury.
Ryan Bertrand is also back having recovered from illness.
Jannik Vestergaard is set to miss out on the clash but is back in training and close to making his first appearance for the club.
Ayoze Perez remains suspended having been shown a straight red card against West Ham.
Jonny Evans, Wesley Fofana, Nampalys Mendy and James Justin all remain sidelined.
Manchester City team news vs Leicester City
Manchester City are set to have both Gabriel Jesus and Ederson available for selection despite FIFA regulations.
City did not release either player to travel to Brazil due to the duo being forced to quarantine for ten days upon their return.
FIFA gave the Brazilians who failed to report for international duty a five-day ban which would have seen them miss this weekend’s match.
However, the Premier League are expected to find a resolution to let these players feature this weekend.
Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden are both closing in on returns from injury.
Aymeric Laporte, Liam Delap, Zack Steffen and Benjamin Mendy all remain unavailable for the trip to the King Power.
