Claude Puel is yet to be on the losing side since taking over from Craig Shakespeare as Leicester manager.

Leicester are the highest goalscorers in the bottom half of the Premier League with 16 goals from their first 11 matches - an average of 1.45 goals per game.

For all their attacking endeavours at one end, the Foxes are just at porous at the other as they have conceded as many goals as they have scored in the Premier League this season (16).

Vicente Iborra opened his account for Leicester in the 2-2 draw with Stoke - this was his first goal in 16 league appearances since netting in La Liga for Sevilla against Athletic Bilbao in March.

Leicester are the third most efficient team in the Premier League in terms of shots-to-goal ratio, as they only require an average of 7.2 attempts before they score a top flight goal.

Leicester have the second lowest pass completion rate in the Premier League at 71.6%.

Manchester City have won their last nine Premier League matches.

Manchester City's 31 points and a + 31 goal difference is the best ever start to a Premier League season after 11 games.

Manchester City are currently averaging 3.45 goals a game in the Premier League this season. If this rate was to continue throughout the campaign they would finish up on 131 goals scored.

Manchester City's haul of 52 goals is a record for a Premier League club after 17 games in all competitions (since 1992-93).

Gabriel Jesus' rate of a goal every 89.6 minutes in the Premier League is the best record of any player to score more than 10 goals in the competition.

Manchester City are the most efficient team in front of goal in the Premier League - they require an average of just 5.1 shots per game to find the net.

Manchester City top both the average possession and passing accuracy charts at 65.4% and 89.2% respectively.

MEMORABLE MEETING
When these two sides met back in February 2016 it was a result that made the footballing world sit up and take notice. Claudio Ranieri’s men came away from the Etihad with all three points after a 3-1 win and for many this was the moment in which Leicester felt they could seriously go on and win the title. As we know, the rest is history.
