The teams will start this season full of hope and Leicester City will be looking to take the Premier League Champions to the brink in this match.
City will look to make an immediate impact with Jack Grealish included and give Pep/City another title.
It should be a great match as both look to win and start the season on the right foot. Brendan v Pep will be an intriguing match up.
For Man City, Phil Foden will be out and everyone else will be available including new signing Jack Grealish.
Leicester will be missing Wesley Fofana who faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines having fractured his fibula in a pre-season friendly against Villarreal.
Nampalys Mendy, Jonny Evans and James Justin have all been recovering from respective injuries sustained and will also miss. Belgian international Timothy Castagne will be questionable.
Manchester City 2-1 Leicester City
