The early Premier League leaders Leicester City make the daunting trip to Manchester City in the pick of Sunday’s fixtures.
Manchester City opened their league campaign with a 3-1 win away at Wolves on Monday evening.
Goals from Kevin de Bruyne, Phil Foden and a deflected Gabriel Jesus effort secured all three points.
Manchester City progressed in the EFL Cup past Bournemouth in midweek, however Leicester were beaten by Arsenal.
The Foxes have won their first two league games this campaign though and rallied from a goal down to beat Burnley last Sunday.
Harvey Barnes scored twice in the win, with the full-back pair of James Justin and Timothy Castagne heavily involved going forward.
Manchester City won both meetings last term, including a 3-1 win at the Etihad as they recovered from an early Jamie Vardy goal.
Manchester City have a very good home record against Leicester, with the Foxes last win back in 2016 on route to the most surprising of league titles.

Sergio Aguero, Bernardo Silva, Joao Cancelo, Ilkay Gundogan and Olksandar Zincheko are all out, whilst Aymeric Laporte is unlikely to be involved.
De Bruyne is expected to shake off a minor injury he picked up against Bournemouth, however Jesus is out for three weeks.
Wilfred Ndidi could miss up to 12 weeks according to Brendan Rodgers, meaning the return from suspension of Jonny Evans from suspension is well timed.
New signing Cengiz Under is expected to make the squad for the first time.

Manchester City (4-3-3): Ederson; Walker, Stones, Ake, Mendy; Rodri, Fernandinho, De Bruyne; Sterling, Foden, Mahrez

Manchester City have won their last seven home Premier League matches
Correct Score: 3-1
Manchester City have scored at least two in their last 11 home fixtures, whilst Leicester’s last three away matches have seen over 2.5 goals

De Bruyne, Foden and Jesus got off the mark in City’s opener meaning Sterling will be desperate to open his own account
