The defending champions make the trip to Leicester on the back of 5-0 wins over Norwich City and Arsenal, with their 1-0 loss to Tottenham Hotspur on the opening weekend of the season now a distant memory. 
Leicester beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-0 in their first game of the campaign before a heavy 4-1 loss at West Ham United. The Foxes followed that up with a 2-1 win at Norwich and although unconvincing, they've proven that they can win even when not at their best. 
"I'm delighted with the three points, and we showed resilience... But we were nowhere near the standard and level I would expect us to play. We've not been at our best so far but we have won two of our three games," Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers said following their result at Carrow Road. 

"That will come over the course of the season, with a little bit more time and fitness... I have no doubts about this team. We can't win games just on talent alone.

"We were disappointed with Monday (at West Ham), but the fans will go home happy after seeing that resilience. We were not at our free-flowing best, but the character and spirit pleases us," he added.

Leicester thumped City 5-2 at Etihad Stadium last season on the back of a Jamie Vardy hat-trick, but lost the reverse fixture 2-0 as the Cityzens went on to win the league crown.
