Manchester City will look to extend their lead at the top to twelve points when they take on Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
City come off the back of the third international break of the season in impressive form, with an unbeaten record to their name. The Citizens comprehensively beat top six rivals Arsenal 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium two weeks ago, and will be looking to continue their stellar streak as the winter fixtures start to come round.
Former Southampton boss Claude Puel has taken over from the sacked Craig Shakespeare, which has seen the Foxes amass four points from his first two league games. In their previous game, they drew 2-2 with Stoke City at the Bet365 Stadium as they were denied six points from six under new management.
The last time these two teams played was a narrow victory for City at the Etihad Stadium as they won 2-1 to keep up the pace for a third-place finish. When these two sides met at the King Power last time, Leicester embarrassed their opponents in a 4-2 victory over Guardiola’s men. Jamie Vardy scored a hat-trick in a match that the away side lost control of within the opening 10 minutes. City will hoping for an opposite result this time round.
Here is how we think Pep Guardiola will set out his squad for the match.
