Leicester City vs. Manchester City: Premier League- Match Preview

Manchester City will look to secure a third consecutive win when they travel to face Leicester City on Saturday.

Leicester City have won two of their first three matches, including a 2-1 win away at Norwich City last time out.

Goals from Jamie Vardy and a winner from Marc Albrighton earned them all three points at Carrow Road.

Manchester City recorded a second consecutive 5-0 home win prior to the international break as they thrashed Arsenal.

Ferran Torres scored twice, with Ilkay Gundogan, Gabriel Jesus and Rodri also scoring to send Arsenal bottom of the Premier League.
