Manchester City will look to continue their winning streak in the Premier League when they play Leicester City on Saturday.

The defending champions bounced back after losing their opener 1-0 to Tottenham with 5-0 victories over Norwich City and Arsenal. However, despite the comeback they are currently sat in seventh in the table.

A win over Leicester would see them climb into the top four and closer to their title defence.

Pep Guardiola’s £100m man Jack Grealish, as well as Raheem Sterling, return from England duty to reinforce the forwards and their strength in depth means they will weather the storm that the FIFA block has put on the team.

Here is all you need to know about the Premier League match.
