Manchester City take on Leicester City today in the biggest Premier League match of the season so far, with City sitting in second place, three points behind the surging Leicester. A win puts City in first on goal difference and gives them a leg up with next week's crucial fixtures on the horizon: Spurs at City, and Leicester at Arsenal. Though the point totals aren't as high as years past, this feels like the best title race in a while with four genuine contenders, and the refreshing change of Leicester into that mix certainly has contributed to that.

The lineups:

Manuel Pellegrini realistically only had two decisions to make: Zabaleta or Sagna, and Iheanacho or Delph. The latter is a matter of formation and thus he has ultimately opted for for the three man midfield and Aguero alone up top. Leicester line up in their usual 4-4-2.
