Manchester City take on Leicester in a tantalising clash between two of last season's top four who have already faced each other in competition this season.


Leicester ran out victorious in the Community Shield in August thanks to a solitary strike from former City striker Kelechi Iheanacho.

City will be determined to get one back against the Foxes with a much tighter battle expected at the top of the league than in recent years.

Pep Guardiola may be forced to contend with two of his key players missing the game – Ederson and Gabriel Jesus – after the pair were controversially slapped with a five-day ban after not travelling to link up with the Brazil national team due to the country's red-list status.

Unless City defy FIFA's orders, they will miss the game this weekend and, with backup keeper Zack Steffen also missing through isolation, 36-year-old veteran Scott Carson is in line for a shock start between the sticks. has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch Leicester v Man City on TV and online.

Our prediction: Leicester v Man City

City may be without a couple of stars but they have plenty of options ready to step up in the absence of Jesus up front.

Ferran Torres has been one of the form players across the whole Premier League so far and will hope to keep his place in the team while former Leicester hero Riyad Mahrez will hope for another shot against his old team.

Leicester's defence has looked flimsy in recent weeks without the calming presence of Jonny Evans – Caglar Soyuncu has looked particularly brittle – and City should have no trouble finding their way through, though Jamie Vardy still represents a threat.
