THE PREDICTION

Two emphatic wins for Leicester saw them top the table after their win over Burnley last weekend but this is a major test for them as they go to the Etihad. Man City looked sharp on Monday night against Wolves and they will be desperate to make a fast start and put a marker down. The Foxes are not helped by an injury to Ndidi and he will be a major loss in a game like this. While Leicester are flying offensively and can certainly score against this City defence, the hosts will create plenty of opportunities themselves. Expected both teams to score and a home win here.
