The Foxes have made a strong start to the new Premier League campaign, taking six points from six with wins over West Bromwich Albion and Burnley.
Manchester City vs Leicester latest odds
Nevertheless, Leicester are hefty 17/2 (9.50) outsiders with bet365 to maintain their 100 per cent record with a win here.
Pep Guardiola’s team followed up their opening win over Wolves by seeing off Bournemouth 2-1 in the EFL Cup on Thursday, and are 2/7 (1.29) favourites to come out on top once again.
None of the last nine league meetings between this pair have resulted in draws, but there are odds of 5/1 (6.00) available on them cancelling each other out in this one.
Manchester City vs Leicester team news
Eric Garcia and Aymeric Laporte are both doubtful, while Oleksandr Zinchenko, Joao Cancelo, Bernardo Silva, Ilkay Gundogan and Sergio Aguero are all ruled out.
Ricardo Pereira, Filip Benkovic and Wilfried Ndidi are unlikely to feature, although Johnny Evans could be back in contention following a groin injury.
Man City XI: Ederson; Walker, Garcia, Ake, Mendy; Rodrigo, Fernandinho, De Bruyne; Mahrez, Sterling, Foden
Leicester XI: Schmeichel; Castagne, Amartey, Soyuncu, Evans, Justin; Mendy, Tielemans, Praet; Barnes, Vardy
Manchester City vs Leicester preview
Both of these sides are looking to move on from last season’s disappointments, with Brendan Rodgers’ men eager to atone for a late capitulation that saw them drop out of the Champions League places.
While they have started promisingly with two wins against modest opposition, it is hard to see them competing with a Citizens outfit determined to put their failed title defence behind them.
Manchester City vs Leicester predictions
Having won just once in nine league away matches, odds of 8/11 (1.73) seem like decent value on Leicester losing by at least two goals against a Manchester City side that has won 10 and lost none of the last 11 at home – scoring 35 and conceding just five.
