It’s been a fascinating battle at the Premier League summit this season between master and student. Pep Guardiola’s defending champions, Man City, are currently second, but clinging firmly to Arsenal’s coattails under their former Etihad coach, Mikel Arteta. With two points the current difference, Guardiola will be expecting a statement performance from his players to leapfrog Arsenal ahead of their match on Sunday.

Chances of an ‘Invincible’ season for City’s Erling Haaland-inspired team were dashed by Liverpool earlier this month, but the current title-holders did respond last time out against a Brighton side managed by Guardiola acolyte Roberto De Zerbi. It had the makings and tactical subplot of a potential upset, but the match proved rather straightforward and routine for City, who claimed a resounding 3-1 win.

Leicester City are on the recovery trail after a disastrous Premier League start. The makers and shakers have so far been vindicated for their decision to stick rather than twist with Brendan Rodgers, with the FA Cup-winning coach winning three of the last five Premier League games, including back-to-back triumphs over Leeds and Wolves to move out of the relegation zone.

Kevin De Bruyne has naturally flourished playing alongside Haaland. So far, the De Bruyne-to-Haaland link-up has yielded four goals, the most of any player-to-player combination this campaign. The brilliant Belgian has also created more chances than any other player in the Premier League this season (36) and registered the most assists (nine). He is certainly gunning for the outright playmaker record in Premier League history, currently held by himself and Thierry Henry on 20 assists for a single season.

As for Haaland, he has bagged 17 goals in 11 Premier League appearances for Man City, which already places him joint-second behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer (18 in 1996/97) for most strikes by a Norwegian player in a single campaign.

In the Premier League, you would have to go back to that 5-2 win Leicester inflicted on City in the 2020/21 season for the last time the Foxes triumphed. Jamie Vardy bagged a hat-trick, while James Maddison also notched an outrageous long-ranger. Both will be determined to haunt Guardiola once again.
