FT: Man City 2-5 Leicester. Vardy (3), Maddison and Tielemans help the Foxes make it three wins from three with a stunning win at Man City. Mahrez had put the hosts in front and Ake got one back late on, but Guardiola's men were well beaten on the day.

Wonderful feet from De Bruyne. He manages to bamboozle opponents even when he's on the floor. He flicks it to Sterling, who plays a smart one-two with Mahrez before firing a shot from the right side of the box straight at Schmeichel.

16' 

A FOXES FIRST? Leicester have never started a top-flight season with three straight league victories. If they do manage to win here, it would equal their best start to a league campaign, having achieved the feat in the second tier in 1899-1900, 1906-07 and 1922-23. However, they are going to have to really up their level to do that. So far, it’s been one-way traffic for the hosts.

CAN LEICESTER FIND A FIRST-HALF ANSWER? The Citizens have led by two or more goals at half-time in their last six Premier League matches, a record run in the competition's history. It's been all Man City so far though. Leicester are trapped inside their own half.

HOME COMFORTS: Guardiola’s men are unbeaten in 11 PL home matches (winning 10). Indeed, City have won their last seven fixtures at the Etihad Stadium by an aggregate score of 26-1.

HEAD-TO-HEAD: Manchester City have won six of the last seven PL meetings and it’s fair to say the Foxes haven’t enjoyed trips to the Etihad of late. They have lost four on the bounce at this stadium. That’s their worst losing run at Man City since a five-game sequence leading up to 1961.

Mahrez on the Citizens' quest to win back the title: "We weren't good enough to win it last season, and now we know what we can improve on to try to be there at the end of the year. I think we have a very good squad and a very good team. I think it's all about consistency and focus and we'll be there at the end."

16.00 

Brendan Rodgers on Man City's (supposedly) weakened squad: “You are working with the players you have and will always be looking to go out to get a good performance and result. They are a top-level side and whatever happens, they are still top-class. We are playing against one of the top teams in Europe. It is a difficult game for us.”

15.50 

It's two changes for the Foxes too. As expected, Wilfred Ndidi, misses out through injury, but the visitors are buoyed by the return of Jonny Evans in his place. Daniel Amartey replaces Ayoze Perez with James Maddison still on the bench.

15.45 

Man City make two changes from the 3-1 triumph at Wolves. Riyad Mahrez comes in for the injured Gabriel Jesus while Eric Garcia replaces John Stones. It's still a pretty strong City side despite Guardiola's pre-match concerns. He'll also be happy to have Aymeric Laporte and Oleks Zinchenko on a bench that does include a few youngsters.

Hello and welcome to LIVE updates of the Premier League clash between Man City and Leicester at Etihad Stadium. Pep Guardiola has been lamenting having a lack of players available for this contest, so it'll be interesting to see how the hosts line up. Meanwhile, the Foxes have won from two in the league so far and will be aiming to maintain their promising start by taking advantage if possible. Kick off 16:30 BST.
