Man City vs Leicester City LIVE!

Manchester City will look to continue their perfect start to the season with back-to-back Premier League wins against Leicester this afternoon.

Pep Guardiola fielded a much-changed side as they saw off a spirited Bournemouth side to progress to the Carabao Cup fourth round on Thursday.

Last season's runners up also got off to a good start in the Premier League, beating Wolves 3-1 away in their opening game of the season.

Prediction: Man City 2-1 Leicester

Manchester City go into this game as undoubted favourites but a Leicester side who have started well will certainly give them a stern test.

Guardiola's side were not at their best against Wolves but secured the crucial three points having entered with a six-point deficit having started the season a week late.

Though Leicester have amassed two league wins in as many games, I expect a fitter City to put on a show as they continue their early title challenge.

Head to head (h2h) history and results

Manchester City and Leicester are certainly no strangers having met 120 times in their history.

It's the home side who enter the fixture with the better record, having won on 61 occasions, as opposed to Leicester's 30 wins, alongside 29 draws.

City have won three times on the bounce against Leicester, including a 3-1 victory at the Etihad last season.
