After seeing off a tricky Wolverhampton Wanderers side in their first Premier League match of the 2020-21 season, Manchester City now face a high-flying Leicester City side at the Etihad Stadium.
Though Manchester City have become a star-studded side only in the last one-and-half-decade, they have always enjoyed a healthy lead in the head-to-head against the Foxes. The Cityzens have won 61 times against Leicester City and drew 29 times in the 120 matches they have clashed.
Starting their Premier League season a game week late, owing to their UEFA Champions League commitments deep into August last season, Manchester City started the season with a comprehensive 3-1 win over Wolves. Goals from Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden and Gabriel Jesus meant the Wolves hardly had a chance to turn the table and Pep Guardiola would hope his side to build on the momentum on Sunday.
Leicester City, however, have had a good start to their season. After thumping West Bromwich Albion 3-0 away from home, they saw off Burnley 4-2 in their backyard. Brendan Rodgers have brought a positive change in the side since his arrival as the Foxes had surprisingly challenged the top clubs for a top-four place last season before they lost steam to settle for a place in the Europa League.
Now, with all their guns firing right from the start, Leicester City could fancy a repeat of their trip to the Etihad in December 2016, when the Foxes had run a 3-1 riot over the Manchester side.
