Leicester have made a solid start to the season with two victories and just one defeat but their performances have been concerning. They opened the campaign with a narrow 1-0 victory over Wolves before going down 4-2 at West Ham. Last time out before the international break they beat Norwich 2-1 but can consider themselves lucky to have taken all three points.
Man City have also won two games from their first three though the mannner of their victories have been impressive. They swatted aside both Norwich and Arsenal by the same 5-0 scoreline in back-to-back games. A 1-0 loss at Tottenham on the opening day was disappointing but the expected goals metrics suggest they were unlucky to come away with nothing from that one.
Leicester vs Man City: Match Stats
Leicester have a good recent record against Man City and although they have started the season slowly the possible absence of keeper Ederson is huge for the visitors. Second choice Zack Steffen is definitely set to miss out so Scott Carson will start in goal. The Foxes have won two of their last three against Pep and his side and they look value here in the double chance market.
Harvey Barnes has had a slow start to the season but he caused City no end of problems in the Community Shield encounter and can get among the goals here. With City also carrying so many threats taking the Leicester man in the anytime market is the safest option.
