Leicester City needs to shore up a defense that is allowing two goals per match before their matchup on Saturday. They and Manchester City are meeting up for their first leg of the season at 7:30 a.m. ET at King Power Stadium. The Foxes have some work to do to even out the 3-9 series between these two since December of 2016, but a win here would be a good start.
Leicester kept a clean sheet against Wolverhampton on Sunday and took the contest 4-0. It took six tries, but Leicester can finally say that they have a win on the road.
Meanwhile, Man City beat Brighton & Hove Albion 3-1 on Saturday.
The wins brought Leicester up to 3-7-2 and Man City to 8-1-2. The Foxes are 1-1 after wins this season, Man City 4-1-2.

Manchester City will look to return to the top of the Premier League table today when they visit Leicester.
Pep Guardiola’s side returned to winning ways in the Premier League last weekend with a 3-1 victory over Brighton, with leaders Arsenal then dropping points for only the second time this season away at Southampton.
It means City can go top ahead of Arsenal’s home fixture against Nottingham Forest as they travel to a Leicester side who have won two games in a row to ease any relegation worries.
City were held to a 0-0 draw at Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday – the third match in a row in which Guardiola’s team have failed to score away from home – while Erling Haaland was brought off at half time on his return to his former team amid fitness concerns.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the Premier League fixture.

What is the team news?
Erling Haaland is a major doubt and faces a late fitness test ahead of the trip to Leicester, Pep Guardiola confirmed on Friday. Guardiola said Haaland had a fever and a knock on his foot following City’s draw at Borussia Dortmund and the manager said: “He feels better but we’re training in a few hours and we will assess. After that we will decide.”
Kyle Walker and Kalvin Phillips are still out but Ederson and Kevin De Bruyne are set to return to the starting line-up.
Johnny Evans and Wilfried Ndidi could return to Leicester’s squad for the visit of the champions, but pair Boubakary Soumare and Daniel Amartey may keep their places in the starting team.
