How many would have been expecting Mendy to be the man - and on his right foot too! It's a deserved lead for the away side anyhow.
- GoalBenjamin MendyManchester City
GOAL! City have the breakthrough. Mendy fakes a shot from a miscued clearance, cuts inside and places the ball in the far corner.
CLOSE! Jesus takes a pass on the burst and hangs a cross to the far post. Aguero meets it on the volley but sees it deflect behind.
Leicester have looked more threatening in this half but Man City continue to enjoy more of the ball.
Great block. Leicester break at speed. Iheanacho feeds Tielemans but his low shot is blocked by Dias.

Jesus teases a pass into Aguero on the burst, but the Argentine's touch lets him down and Schmeichel gathers.

- End of 1st Half
HT: Leicester 0-0 Man City.
The Foxes think they are in front but it's very short-lived joy. Vardy races on to Perez's pass, rounds the keeper and tucks home - but he's offside!
One minute added.
CLOSE! Jesus cuts in from the left but flashes just wide of the top corner.
De Bruyne takes aim once again but curves just wide from 25 yards out.
Man City are targeting a 15th straight away win here. So far, it's been an evening of frustration.
Vardy has had just four touches so far. That's the least out of everyone. However, he does have eight goals in nine top-flight games against Guardiola's Manchester City, twice as many as any other player has scored against sides managed by the Spaniard.
The pattern continues but we still await that breakthrough. Man City utterly dominant. Jesus tries to change that but Fofana block his 18-yard drive.
- Yellow cardWilfred NdidiLeicester City
Ndidi booked for taking down De Bruyne as he looked to break.
STAT: Gabriel Jesus has scored four goals in his five Premier League games versus Leicester. He’ll be hoping to help himself to an early birthday gift by continuing that run as he is 24 on Sunday.
Fernandinho is fortunate not to pick up a caution for a lunging tackle on Perez. Leicester look to load a diagonal delivery into the box from the resulting kick, but Ederson comes flying way off his line to pluck it out of the air.
Schmeichel is alert to gather Jesus' cross from the near post after Mahrez had split the Foxes defence. Aguero would have had a tap-in with a better cross.
STAT: Leicester have lost six home league games this term. Everton are the only top-half side with a worse record.
CLOSE! De Bruyne whips a 25-yard free kick over the wall and on to the cross bar. So unlucky!
Fernandinho feeds De Bruyne with a lovely turn and pass on the stretch. The Belgian lashes a 25-yard strike over the top but was caught as he pulled the trigger. Free kick to the visitors in a dangerous position.
Aguero flashes a volley over the bar after a ricochet had dropped his way. Leicester were lucky as they were caught trying to play out from the back.
PHOTO: Ferna's joy is short-lived. Still goalless.
Man City continue to probe and the Foxes are struggling to get out of their own half. Not that it will affect Rodgers too much. It'll be key to the game-plan to use Vardy's pace on the break.
The visitors have bossed it so far but haven't really looked like testing Schmeichel, other than with that disallowed Fernandinho goal.
CLOSE! City have Mahrez free in acres of space on the right, but for once De Bruyne's pass towards the Algerian is weak and easily cut out.
DID YOU KNOW? Leicester's last top-flight win against a side who began the day top of the table came at Manchester United in January 1998. The Foxes are winless in 15 Premier League games against the league leaders since, losing 13.
NO GOAL! Aguero was in an offside position in front of Schmeichel as the shot flew into the corner. Still 0-0.
GOAL? Fernandinho rifles a first-time drive into the bottom corner from 35 yards out. VAR is checking ...
RIP Frank Worthington.
- 1st Half
KICK OFF! Leicester get us underway.
Warm up done. Almost show time - who are you tipping?
SUPER SERGIO: Aguero has netted 257 goals in 384 matches for City and has the best minutes-per-goal ratio in Premier League history. He has averaged a goal every 108 minutes.
STAT: Leicester are aiming to claim a league double over Manchester City for the first time since the 1986-87 season.
Ayoze Perez: “They’re the leaders right now and, obviously, it’s going to be a tough test for us, but we’ve done it before. We’ve proved we can beat the big teams, so we’re definitely ready for it. We also know how good Man City are. The amount of players they’ve got, they play very good football, but I think the analysis has to be more about us and what we can do."
Ilkay Gundogan (on then bench today): “We know that we have players on the bench every single game that can possibly make the difference, if we need it. In the biggest teams, they win like that, having players on the bench contributing in important moments. That’s what you need when you want to win. We are happy to have a great squad, to have a deep squad.”
Brendan Rodgers: "They’re an incredible team. They’ve played at a really consistent level. They’ve got the best manager in the world. They have all the ingredients to make them a really outstanding team, but we’re really excited by it. It’s always a great challenge and a real test to play against Manchester City."
More from Pep: "Leicester is a top class team - they can beat us. The depth of their squad, I am impressed. They can play in different ways."
Guardiola: “We will be closer to winning the title if we win and then every game after that is a final. The team will feel that, and we are ready to try it.”
Leicester make two changes from the 5-0 win over Sheff United. Daniel Amartey and Marc Albrighton feature with James Maddison on the bench after recovering from a hip problem.
Sergio Aguero starts for Manchester City in what is his first game since it was announced the Argentine will be leaving the club in the summer. He is one of four changes from the 3-0 win at Fulham last time out in the Premier League. In come Kyle Walker, Kevin de Bruyne, Fernandinho and Riyad Mahrez.
