Previous meeting

The Foxes got the better of us when we met in the Community Shield at the start of August, with former City striker Kelechi Iheanacho netting an 89th minute winner from the penalty spot.

Jack Grealish made his debut off the bench in a team deprived of a host of senior players, with Ilkay Gundogan going closest for City with a free-kick which forced Kasper Schmeichel into a superb save.

Zack Steffen denied Jamie Vardy with a brilliant reaction in save in the first half, but, after Nathan Ake tripped Iheanacho, the Nigerian made no mistake from 12-yards.
