Manchester City predicted line-up vs Leicester City

The City boss defended his call saying that a combination of injuries and a youth team game at the same time had contributed to his decision to travel to Turf Moor with just 17 players.

But after the break, they were transformed as Sergio Aguero and Kevin De Bruyne put on an attacking masterclass to help the runaway leaders rout the 2016 champions 5-1.

Aguero, City's top scorer, ran riot in the second half at the Etihad Stadium, scoring his third hat trick of the season to take his total for the campaign to 28 and his overall City tally to 197.

The range of finishes were remarkable - from a deft chip over a stranded Kasper Schmeichel to a powerful drive that flew in off the bar - as he once again proved to be City's match-winner.

The half ended with City in the ascendancy with Aguero, Sterling and Ilkay Gundogan all having shots on goal.

City are huge favourites to win and they are available at their best odds of 2/9 at Skybet. Leicester could not live with him.

City players, especially Raheem Sterling, were guilty of squandering easy chances against the Clarets, and Pep Guardiola will hope for much better finishing from his side against the Foxes. "The next day he will score".

Putin 'offended' for not being on United States sanctions
Russian Federation is ready to take "serious" reciprocal measures but will refrain from doing so for now, Putin added. Mazurin said a number of people on the United States list could in no way be described as Kremlin-linked oligarchs.

Leicester have managed to win two out of the last five games against City, though, and the counter-attacking setup could potentially pose problems to Pep Guardiola's side.

The 29-year old forward now has 28 goals so far this season and Guardiola said it was good to see him hit some goals after last week's disappointing draw at Burnley. For a player operating predominantly in wide areas, that's a remarkable number.

The Leicester manager confirmed Sportsmail's story that Mahrez will miss Saturday's match at Manchester City but declined to bring clarity on a number of details. The Englishman, who wanted to move to the Citizens at the time, saw the Reds turn down numerous bids for him before he took matters into his own hands.

The midfielder was not done there with another good ball, this time to Aguero at the start of the second half, for assist number 13.

His vision and weight of pass is exceptional.

The Argentina global hopes City can continue their good form and hold on to their place at the top of the table.
