Manchester City lost their first home game of the new Premier League season against Leicester City, losing 5-2 to the Foxes.
City beat Wolves in their first fixture on Monday before a young side overcame Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup on Thursday. Now, the quick turnaround of fixtures continues with the visit of 2016 Premier League champions Leicester, who went top of the table with their win.
Pep Guardiola was dealt a blow with the injury to Gabriel Jesus on Monday, with the Brazilian out for a month and Sergio Aguero still unavailable. That leaves no fit senior striker, meaning City will have to play someone out of position or call on youngster Liam Delap again.
Guardiola was able to play Raheem Sterling, but after Riyad Mahrez had given them the lead, a Jamie Vardy hat-trick and James Maddison screamer sealed a win for Leicester. Nathan Ake got a consolation back with his first City goal, before Youri Tielemans added Leicester’s fifth from the spot. (Goal).
