Man City vs Leicester City
Sunday 27th September
The former champions know that only consistency can reclaim their crown from the grasps of Liverpool.
They have started well, a 3-1 victory over Wolves isn’t very easy on the eye with how bogey Wolves have been to them.
A goal for Gabriel Jesus on the night also means confidence for the Brazilian that needs to jump out of the shadows of Sergio Aguero.
Leicester are currently top of the league, depending on what happens around.
They certainly won’t be top by the time this kicks off but their sole aim would be to return to the top by the time the final whistle is blown at the Etihad, brave but not impossible.
Manchester City won the last three involving these two and coming off the back of a slim win over Bournemouth in the League Cup albeit, with a weakened side.
A lot changed when Kevin De Bruyne and Raheem Sterling joined the fray.
But Leicester on their parts were subdued by Arsenal and couldn’t even test Bernd Leno enough.
Maybe their priority is the league, maybe it was an off day, they can’t afford same story on Sunday.
Kevin De Bruyne is the man to watch, with Wilfried Ndidi out for about 12 weeks, Leicester has it all to do to fill his void.
Brendan Rodgers has confirmed @Ndidi25 will undergo surgery after suffering an adductor injury in last Sunday's 4-2 win over Burnley.— Leicester City (@LCFC) September 25, 2020
He has been playing at CB since the league started.
Jonny Evans could return for the visitors after his red card against Manchester United at the back end of last season.
No fans mean they have to do it in front of an empty stadium but three points will matter to either side than anything else.
