A resurgent Leicester City will face an unstoppable force in Manchester City at King Power Stadium on Saturday.
The Foxes have put together a decent run of results and they are unbeaten in their last five league games with two wins and three draws. However, they will be huge underdogs against a rampant City side, who have dropped only two points this season.
In their last league fixture, the Foxes came out with a 2-2 draw from Stoke, and in their last home game, they claimed a 2-0 win over Everton.
Leicester are yet to lose a game under new boss Claude Puel, and they have climbed up to the 12th spot in the league table.
Meanwhile, City have established themselves as firm favourites for the league title in the first quarter of the season. Pep Guardiola’s side have picked up 31 points from a total of 33, and they currently enjoy a comfortable eight-point lead at the summit.
In their last fixture, City claimed a convincing 3-1 win over Arsenal, and that was preceded by an impressive 4-2 win at Napoli in Champions League.
Last season, the corresponding fixture ended in a 4-2 win for the Foxes, and City claimed a 2-1 win at Etihad Stadium.
